Expert Witness Testimony

We offer a full range of real estate appraisal and consulting services, with experience in many types of property. We are also experienced in litigation support and expert witness services. Clients who have used our expert testimony services include government agencies, tax entities, financial institutions, legal and accounting firms, municipal agencies and others. In many cases, our independent, supportable analysis has allowed clients to settle cases without going to court.

An appraiser must always remain unbiased in performing appraisal assignments. However, we can consult with you and advise and provide expert advice about the relative strength of an appraisal presented by opposing parties. We can also perform additional research and analysis to support other opinions or discredit inaccurate or erroneous assumptions and/or valuation conclusions. We have experience providing expert witness testimony for depositions and court appearances and have testified in state and federal courts.

Some examples of issues we have experience with include:

  • Potentially "stigmatized" property;
  • Eminent domain (full and part takes);
  • Right-of-ways and easements;
  • Estate settlement;
  • Partnership settlement;
  • Bankruptcy;
  • Dissolution of interests;
  • Taxation issues; and
  • Various other litigation.
With our background, experience and proven track record we are capable of taking on most any type of appraisal assignment. Our professional opinions can stand up under the most severe scrutiny.
