Expert Witness Testimony 


Appraisers are often asked act as an expert witnesses in a wide array of forums including; litigation / court cases, re-zoning presentations and tax hearings.  At times the credibility and credentials of an appraiser are attacked.  The report prepared for a client often come under close scrutiny and is attacked.


Appraisers generally are hired to express a value opinion, and their position in most instances is that of an unbiased third-party analyst defending their appraisal report and the opinion that it concludes.  While it is always important to produce well-prepared appraisal and consulting reports, it is especially critical when they are bound for the bound for the deep waters of courtroom controversy.

Preparation and experience are recognized as being important factors that influence the outcome of appraisers in hearings, presentations, depositions and trials.  Appraisers with many years of experience in a market area are, in our opinion, usually best suited to weather the storms that erupt in depositions and during cross-examination.  The depth of an expert's knowledge surfaces quickly in most forums, even when their answers are short and concise.
