Loan expert witness candidates typically have backgrounds in banking, commercial lending, real estate lending, foreclosure, consumer finance, forensic accounting, regulatory compliance, loan servicing, and/or mortgage loan processing. While many experts have expertise in banking and loan procedures, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing expert testimony before the court in a manner whereby lay people (judges and jurors) can understand the litigation matters and evidence.
Representative matters that call for an expert in lending and loans involve legal issues pertaining to:
Representing the plaintiff or defendant, litigation support and expert witness services by a loans expert witness could include document review, an expert report, expert opinion, deposition testimony, and/or courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, legal counsel may request a loan specialist with prior expert witness testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek a banking industry expert, loan servicer, or finance advisor for pre-litigation consulting services.
