The hourly rate for inspection, research and consultation is $300

We charge an additional fee of $100 per hour when traveling outside the Phoenix metropolitan area. Related travel expenses (such as airline tickets, shuttles, car rentals, lodging, etc.) must also be reimbursed. Additional fees paid for consultations with outside experts, scientific tests and color photocopies that must also be reimbursed.

The minimum fee for the production of a document is $900 (equivalent to three hours at $300 per hour). “Rush assignments” incur an additional fee of 50 percent of the total.

One half of the anticipated fee is due upon the completion of the initial inspection. The remaining balance will be due upon the completion of the report.

Consultation fees for expert testimony

Expert witness work requires an initial retainer to be determined once the assignment has been outlined.

All services provided will be billed at a rate of $300 per hour. These services include initial meetings, appraisal review, depositions, standby time, interrogatory development, deposition review, pre-testimony consultations, testimony, cross examination, and subsequent consultations via telephone, e-mail or in-person.

An advance payment of $900 is required for depositions (equivalent to 3 hours).

If you wish to submit my name (Corinne Cain, ASA) as an expert witness, you must first contact me and sign an engagement agreement. The fee to accompany this agreement (one that is in keeping with my normal fee structure) will be established at that time.
