Court reports, attendance and other associated costs

Clients are discouraged from having their therapist subpoenaed or having them provide records for the purpose of litigation. Even though you are responsible for the testimony fee, it does not mean that your therapist’s testimony will be solely in your favour. Therapists can only testify to the facts of the case and to their professional opinions.

 

Court reports – Average cost ranges between $1180 – $5000. This is an estimate only.

Court Attendance – Average cost ranges between $2500 – $7000. This is an estimate only.

*A deposit of $1000.00 is required up front for all court reports and court attendance requests.

 

Fees reported below are in accordance with the APS National Schedule of Recommended Fees.
