Litigation Services

Our expert witness approach is to be an advocate for the analysis and opinion. As expert witnesses, our primary responsibility is to develop and support a credible opinion of value.

Litigation support typically involves divorce, condemnation, construction defects, or a seller not disclosing known defects prior to a sale. An appraisal report undergoes extreme scrutiny in a court's ruling. Whether original opinions, or rebuttals, litigation appraisals require knowledgeable, skilled, and credentialed appraisal specialists that are experienced in providing litigation appraisals, appraisal reviews, and expert witness testimony.

Experience with cases include:

  • Value loss for varying causes
  • Cases with retrospective value
  • Valuation for divorce, dissolution of the partnership, and taxation issues
  • Cases involving Estate disputes
  • Cases involving Bankruptcy




We have helped our clients achieve positive outcomes by:

  • Providing expert advice that helps resolve complex appraisals and valuation issues

  • Assisting in identifying the relative strengths and weaknesses of an appraisal or other information present by opposing parties

  • Performing additional research and analyses

  • Expert witness testimony at depositions and trial

  • Advising client counsel in the preparation of appraisal-related discovery, appraiser expert challenges, and appraisal and appraiser compliance with state and federal regulations of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices ( USPAP )

It is vitally important that an expert witness provides a well-written report, maintains an organized file, as well as meticulously studies all pertinent documents related to the case. With our expertise and proven track record, we are ready to take on any type of appraisal assignment.

Insurable Value Appraisal

Insurable Values

Do you have enough insurance to cover your losses?

In the event of a substantial loss, property owners can be faced with not enough coverage to replace their properties. Conversely, some property owners are potentially paying too high of a premium. Either scenario can be remedied with an Insurable Value Appraisal.


This type of appraisal can help by:

  • Make sure that your property is not under-insured

  • Potentially save money on your premiums by avoiding overstated values

  • Make sure your insurance company indemnifies or reimburses you properly for your property loss

  • The insurer gets confidence in the validity of the values of the assets to be insured, which can help the owner negotiate the best coverage

  • Determine your replacement cost values today

  • Allows you to request from your insurance company an additional value-added item - an agreed amount endorsement. This means they accept your value and cannot state that you don't qualify for the co-insurance clause

Appraisers use their expertise and knowledge to assess the insurable value accurately, providing insurance companies with the necessary information to establish appropriate coverage limits. Overall, an insurable value appraisal is a vital process that provides peace of mind to policyholders and accurate information to insurance companies.
