Fee schedule

 

Here is an overview of the fees of Larry Lowenthal, a real estate expert witness who is retained for lawsuits wherein real estate brokers are charged with malpractice, failure to disclose, negligence, dishonesty, deceptive conduct, violations of law and the Realtor Code of Ethics.  Depending upon the facts and the law, Larry works for plaintiffs and defendants, and testifies at depositions and trials.

INITIAL CONSULTATION, ROUTINE CALLS AND CORRESPONDENCE
No charge.

RESEARCH,
EXAMINATION OF DOCUMENTS,
MOST CONFERENCE CALLS,
READING AND ANNOTATING DEPOSITIONS,
DEPOSITIONS AND TRIAL APPEARANCES, AND
TRAVEL TIME

$240.00 per hour timed and billed to the nearest minute.  Flat fees may apply to distant events when Larry must travel.

INITIAL FEE
$1,200 is the initial advance fee for the first five hours work.  This is the minimum charge to be paid upon reaching an employment agreement, and is non-refundable. 
If there is measurable discovery (oh, say, at least eight inches of paper) including transcripts, then the non-refundable fee goes to $2,400 for the first ten hours. 

LISTING NAME AS EXPERT WITH COURT
$500.00 is due immediately if initial fee is not forthcoming within a week.

GENERAL FEE & EXPENSE NOTE
Out-of-pocket expenses billed at cost.  Lowenthal does not expect to work or travel carte blanche, and is conservative when other people’s money is involved – both plaintiff’s and defendant’s.
