Our Expert Witness Fee Calculator compiles fee data from more than 50,000 expert-attorney connections the Expert Institute has facilitated as well as information drawn from thousands of expert witnesses in our network.
The overwhelming majority of experts who are paired with attorneys through the Expert Institute are actively-practicing professionals who don’t advertise their services online. In addition, these experts may only testify on 1-5 cases annually due to their careers as academic department heads, industry leaders, and medical chiefs, and can command higher fees than their more junior or retired counterparts.
Although most experts request billing at an hourly rate, some experts charge daily rates for deposition appearances and courtroom testimony. We have accounted for this discrepancy by dividing daily expert rates by 8 to reflect a typical 8-hour work day.
