Valuation Advisory Litigation Services

Kidder Mathews provides litigation support services for real property disputes.

When our clients require experienced valuation experts to help solve unique problems, we strive to understand both their objectives and the particular constraints of a dispute and then provide expert opinions that resolve the matter at hand.

Kidder Mathews Advantage

ATTENTION. The specifics of a case are carefully studied at the outset to develop a scope of services to solve the problem.

TECHNIQUE. A systematic process is established that addresses the rights and concerns of the client, and also protects the opinions that are ultimately rendered.

PRECISION. Research and analyses are focused on relevant issues, using appropriate logic and reasoning that addresses the matter being litigated.

COMMUNICATION. Clients are kept continually apprised of case progress, to the extent permitted by ground rules applicable to the assignment.

TIMELINESS. Cases in most venues require meeting court mandated deadlines for discovery, deposition, or trial. The Kidder Mathews team has extensive experience in litigation matters and understands the need for maintaining schedules.
