What Real Estate Expert Witnesses Charge and Why

What can you expect to pay in real estate expert witness feeds in Arkansas? Is an expert witness the right choice for your case? Ferstl Valuation Services explains.

Are you in the middle of a real estate dispute? When it comes to real estate litigation, having an expert witness to testify on your behalf can make all the difference in your case.

In the legal system, expert witnesses can play a major role in the outcome of a case. This remains true not only in criminal cases, but in Arkansas real estate disputes as well. By having a solid understanding of what a real estate expert witness is, the role they play in a case, and the types of fees they charge, you can make an informed decision on whether you should source one for your own case. Real estate expert witness fees are relatively nominal compared to the crucial role an expert witness can play in the outcome of your real estate dispute.

Ferstl Endorsements:

“I have worked with both Tom and J. T. Ferstl in numerous eminent domain cases over the last decade. Their dedication to their craft and to providing clients with a fair and defensible appraisal is second to none in my experience. They have also been invaluable in evaluating cases and the expert reports provided by the opposing parties.


Without hesitation, I would recommend both Tom and J. T. and their staff of appraisers to anyone in need of such services both in and out of a litigation setting.”
