Kathy Poppers Expert Art Appraisals

Witness, Deposition and Litigation Services

I have been a qualified expert to the legal profession and the courts since 1998. In 2008 I prepared a witness to testify according to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice in the Titanic-Artifact Recovery case. I have been hired over 30 times to prepare appraisals that might have ended up in court; frequently cases are settled after the appraisal report is submitted.

In expert witness situations sometimes property is simply mis-identified. Someone believes they own a painting when in fact they own a color copied reproduction of a painting. Frequently they were mis-informed by the seller.

Although it is preferable to have plenty of time to prepare for a case rush turnarounds are available at a special rate.
