Will A Legal Expert Witness Be Too Expensive For My Case?

If your client is involved in a dispute with an attorney about the reasonableness of that attorney’s fees and costs, the expense of bringing such a case will be a primary concern for your client. In complex cases, however, where the attorney’s fees seem excessive, it can be well worth it to invest in a legal expert witness.

Bringing in an expert witness shows that you are serious about advocating for your client and presenting a strong argument to the court. Expert witnesses may provide valuable insight into an attorney’s practices, which may help both current and future clients save a significant amount of money.

A legal expert witness will need to have a background in or knowledge of the legal industry, so he or she will be well informed about what is reasonable in the practice of law. A legal expert will also clarify the issues in your case and will provide guidance as to how it may need to proceed.

A legal expert witness will probably bill at an hourly rate. However, that cost is often a fraction of the monetary value of the billable hours at the center of the dispute. Providing some brief details about the case to your potential legal expert witness will allow the expert to estimate the time and expense necessary to serve in your case.

When a legal expert witness helps you prevail in your case, the investment of your time and money becomes justified. It can help to identify practices that are unfair to clients and reduce the cost of an enormous bill that your client received from an attorney. When your client wins a case, it will only mean more referrals for you and your firm in the future.
