Pacific Coast Expert Knowledge Consulting (Pacific) maintains a database of expert witnesses and mediators who we refer to attorneys. Attorneys nor their clients pay a fee for expert witness referrals. Experts pay a reasonable one-time fee only after they are retained and a deposit is received. Attorneys and their clients receive the advantage of substantially lower costs with no hourly markup, as required by many expert witness referral services. Experts receive the advantage of paying a one-time fee, with no hourly markup, only after they have a new client and funds are received by them.

After selecting a referred expert witness, attorneys are generally required to send a $3,500 deposit to Pacific  (made payable to Pacific). The attorney and client receive a full credit with the expert witness while Pacific deducts its fee before sending the balance to the expert witness. Our fee per case is $1,500 which is earned when the expert witness  is accepted and the deposit is received.

Attorneys will find our Attorney Referral Agreement on this site. Likewise, expert witnesses and mediators will find our Expert Witness Referral Agreement and Mediator Referral Agreement on this site.

Our database includes expert witnesses and mediators with expertise in the following areas:

Special Expert Witness Searches

Sometimes attorneys need experts with unique qualifications that require special searches. Pacific Coast Expert Knowledge Consulting conducts special searches for hard to find experts at no cost to attorneys. There is no fee payable unless you engage a referred expert. Please call to discuss your expert witness and consulting needs at any time.


Our Clients Evaluate Our Service

In order to constantly improve our service, we have implemented an Expert Evaluation Program. At the end of each case, we request that each attorney complete a short evaluation form that we use to make future decisions about referrals. The feedback is invaluable to us and our clients. Our goal is to provide the best and most effective experts every time we make a referral.


What is an Expert Witness?

An expert witness is a witness, who by virtue of their education, training, skill, or experience, is believed to have expertise and knowledge about a subject beyond that of the average person, sufficient that others, including a judge or jury, may rely upon the expert’s opinion. Only experts are permitted to offer opinions at trial. Whether a person qualifies as an expert is for each trial judge to determine. Often, attorneys challenge whether an opponent’s offer of an expert should be permitted to testify as an expert. Once a person qualifies as an expert, is it up to the trier of fact, either the judge or jury, to determine the credibility of the expert’s testimony and how much weight should be placed on his or her testimony. Experts charge an hourly fee for their time. Their compensation can never be contingent on the outcome of a case. Like all witnesses, experts take an oath requiring them to tell the truth.


What Does an Expert Witness Do?

An expert can explain to a judge or jury a complex process in an understandable way. For example: what is involved in originating, underwriting, processing, closing, and selling mortgage loans.
An expert can explain to a judge or jury the advantages and disadvantages, including any costs, associated with making decisions concerning possible courses of action. Balancing all advantages and disadvantages is necessary in all negligence cases.
Expert witnesses can explain to a judge or jury the risks associated with various alternate courses of action.
Expert witnesses can explain what can happen if someone falls below the standard of care and why.
An expert witness can provide an opinion as to whether a person met or fell below the standard of care.
An expert can explain to a judge or jury the relationships between parties. For example: real estate brokers and agents, mortgage brokers and lenders, and homeowner association boards and members of the association.
An expert can explain to a judge or jury what a person in a certain occupation or profession does or is expected to do.
An expert witness can provide an opinion defining the standard of care for various professionals, businesses, and others.
Experts can explain why certain conduct is expected and why certain conduct should be avoided.
Experts can explain their experience with certain courses of action.
Experts can recommend other experts to attorneys.
