What’s a reasonable fee for giving a deposition or my expert opinion?
October 30, 2017
Multiple factors determine what is “reasonable” to charge for time at a deposition or giving an expert opinion in a spoken or written report. An excellent guideline is what is accepted among the provider’s peers, given their specialty, credentials, additional post-graduate certifications, and the average rate in the location of practice. Fees can include time spent in preparation or in review of the patient’s file, time spent in meetings with the attorney, and time spent on the day of the deposition.
