Appraisal Witness: Qualified Expert

Expert Appraisal Witness

Looking for an appraisal witness that has experience in the courtroom too?

A college degree combined with appraisal classes does not necessarily translate that the appraiser will be able to hold up to the rigors of cross examination during litigation. Generally, an appraiser is an expert in their field of choice, and this alone doesn’t stand the test in litigation settings. Most appraisers do not have the necessary skills, nor do they want the skills to attend court or a deposition in order to be questioned as an expert appraisal witness.

If you are in the position where you require an appraisal witness, you need to turn to a company that has the skills to meet your needs. DurkinValuation Associates combines years of field valuations, appraisal training as a Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA), Graduate Personal Property Appraiser (GPPA), Senior Professional Appraiser (SPA), Expert Appraisal Witness Courses (N.A.P.A.), and the latest USPAP 2012 – 2013 testing with actual court and deposition performance as an expert witness, to supply the service that you need.

Durkin Valuation can provide you with a valuation service, undertaken by an expert appraisal witness that can produce a variety of valuation reports for a large range of real property, personal tangible and intangible property and sales of machinery and equipment. Reasonably priced and professionally presented, our expert appraisal witnesses are committed to providing the highest level of service. As such, we guarantee to defend any appraisal produced by our company with participation in deposition, mock trial and/or court appearance as an expert appraisal witness.

The specialities of our expert appraisal witnesses include cases involving Personal Property, Replacement Value for Insurance, Marital Estates, IRS Charitable Contributions, and Decedent Estates. We are also able to provide Expert Testimony for these areas of our expertise.

If personal property or a business changes hands or is divided, it’s vital that a defendable value is established to protect everyone involved. Using the services of an expert appraiser can help to simplify negotiations, and deter any disputes or litigation between all the involved parties.

In the event that negotiations come to a stand still, a professional appraisal provided by an expert appraisal witness can be highly beneficial for an attorney or trustee. An expert appraisal witness should be consulted by anyone who is involved in conducting estate or divorce proceedings or assuming fiduciary responsibility for personal property of individuals or businesses.

All of the reports provided by our professional expert appraisal witnesses are independent and defendable, written in accord with (USPAP 2012-2013), the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice.

Durkin Valuation Associates have numerous appraisers with a sum total of 70 years experience appraising and we are willing to appraise nation wide (or anywhere in the world) and testify as expert witnesses. Telephone: (617) 720-0332
