Litigation Support and Expert Witness Testimony
AWS appraisers have provided litigation support in a variety of cases to include eminent domain, environmental issues, partial and leased fee/leasehold interest, and other real estate matters. Members of our staff have been qualified as real estate valuation experts in many legal venues such as state and federal courts as well as city, county, state, and federal regulatory agencies. AWS personnel, qualified as expert witnesses, are experienced in proceedings ranging from preliminary hearings, mediation and arbitration, to full condemnation trials.
Appraising within the eminent domain legal framework requires specialized knowledge relating to terminology and methodology combined with appropriately addressing just compensation, partial acquisitions, damages, benefits, and the application of “before and after analysis."
