What Sets our Firm Apart

Expert Witness Service Categories

At Minc Law, we provide expert witness services for internet defamation, privacy violations, internet harassment and stalking, online extortion and sextortion, and other internet-related cases.

Damages Calculation & Reporting

​As expert witnesses, we can approximate and recommend specific types of damages in internet defamation related cases. We can quantify financial damages, and costs to repair those damages, that have occurred as a result of your business being defamed online or a privacy violation.

Standard of Care in Legal Malpractice

We can testify to whether an attorney or legal professional breached their standard of care owed to you and your business. Having represented thousands of internet defamation victims, we can testify to whether an attorney failed to: file you and your business’s legal claim within the appropriate statute of limitations time-frame, adequately prove financial damages at trial, or prove a specific element of your claim.

Financial Damage Modeling

We can work with financial experts and clients to produce a comprehensive financial damage model for businesses seeking to maximize the return on the size of their damage awards. We can help maximize your business’s claim for damages in every available category of damages, including special, compensatory, punitive, and general damages. 

We can prove reputational harm done to your business by providing a sharp analysis of drops in search volume traffic and business profile ratings, search engine optimization tactics used by perpetrators to manipulate search results, and search result displacements. For example, we can pinpoint how many internet users have viewed your business’s Yelp profile after a fake review(s) has been posted by calculating the monthly keyword search volume for specific keywords your business ranks for. We then create comprehensive damage models that hold up into court showing the damage done to your business.

We can also evaluate expenses incurred by your business to mitigate damages caused by defamation and internet-related attacks, future and past lost earnings, clients, and revenue, and miscellaneous expenses to create an extensive financial damage model. We can also quantity and testify to non-monetary damages incurred as a result of internet defamation or other internet-related attacks.   

Investigation Services

Oftentimes in internet defamation and online privacy cases, an in-depth online investigation is conducted to ascertain the identity of an anonymous perpetrator and the collected evidence is not always crystal clear. We provide a highly level of technical expertise needed to analyze subpoena results, IP addresses, and other technical evidence in online investigation cases and can attest to whether the evidence in question traces back to the correct person, competing business, or collective of perpetrators. 

We can act as both an expert and factual witness to confirm that a positive identification of a perpetrator occurred, verify the processes by which he or she was identified, and review online investigation results to ensure that a proper chain of custody was established along the way.

In the virtual world of the Internet, where truth can be impossible to discern from fiction, Minc is the leading go-to lawyer who effortlessly wipes away the fiction.

I had an amazing experience and couldn’t be happier with the service. Every thing was done as promised and agreed. Very professional, I highly recommend it.

– D.M.

★★★★★

When I started my defamation case with Aaron, I had no idea what was going on or how to fix it. Fast forward to today, and the defamation has been removed and the culprit has been identified. I feel like he is proficient at identifying applicable laws and managing the complex issues involved with defamation.

– John H. 

★★★★★

I worked with Melanie Hughs who assisted me in removing things from the internet that were spitefully put up. I was a little hesitant at first but well worth the money to have a peace of mind. I am so glad I used MINC. She was professional and courteous. She kept me informed, and was easy to get in contact with when I had questions. Thank You MINC

– Joey D.

★★★★★

Absolutely solved my problem, quick and just as promised. Some have mentioned the cost but I thought it was very fair and a much better result than using a service that claims to drive search results down on Google only to have it inch back to the top in 6 months. With Minc it is removed not driven down. These guys took it off the internet for less $. Completely satisfied.

– I.C.

  • Sending demand-letters to perpetrating parties.

    Costs for Expert Witness Services

    Purchasing expert witness testimony services is not like purchasing a house or a car, as every situation is unique. Generally, we charge clients for expert witness service engagements as Litigation services.  We bill litigation services hourly, including expert witness services.

    Generally, we require a minimum retainer of $7500 for any litigation matter. Average total costs can go as low as $5,000$7,500, but on average fall between $14,000$16,000 for most of the matters we handle. Total cost of your litigation matter will be influenced by a number of important factors, including the size and scope of any expert report, whether testimony is required at depositions or trial, and travel is required.

    You can find out more about Litigation Service costs over at our Pricing Page.

    As with any sensitive legal matter, if you are interested in obtaining more specific advice or information regarding the costs and expenses related to your specific removal or case, you will need to speak directly with a legal expert.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What Types of Expert Witness Services Do You Provide?
    As noted above, we provide four primary types of expert witness services where we can testify to:

    • Approximation of damages;
    • Standard of care in a legal malpractice case;
    • Financial damage modeling;
    • Investigation services and practices.

    This is not an exhaustive list of expert witness services we provide. If you have a specific internet-related matter that you would like to find out whether we can be of assistance with, then please reach out to us by calling us at (216) 373-7706, contacting a chat representative, or filling out our online form.

    Can a Minc Law Attorney Provide Expert Witness Services For Me Even If I’m Located in a Different State?
    Of course! Being out of state will in no way be a hurdle or impediment to Minc Law being able to:

    • Write an expert witness report
    • Provide expert witness testimony
    • Provide deposition testimony
    • Speak on topics and provide background information to juries

    At Minc Law, we not only provide expert witness services in the U.S., but across the globe.

    Do Expert Witnesses Get Paid For Travel Time?

    Generally, yes. Travel costs are an often overlooked component of out-of-state expert witness services. When an attorney travels to provide expert witness services for a client in another state, costs may include airfare, transportation, and reasonable lodging and meals. Additional fees may be added if the lawyer misses out on other work while traveling on your behalf. However, rates and costs for travel can be negotiable and can can be mitigated when appropriate by use of videoconferencing.

    When it comes to providing expert witness services, we at Minc Law know how to save costs for clients and maximize results without breaking the bank. We provide custom expert witness service budgets for clients of all price ranges!

    Who Can Be an Expert Witness?
    The Federal Rules of Evidence outlines who can and cannot be an expert witness. However, each state may also have their own rules about expert witness services. Rule 702 of the Federal Rules of Evidence provides: “A witness who is qualified as an expert by knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education may testify in the form of an opinion or otherwise if:

    1. the expert’s scientific, technical, or other specialized knowledge will help the trier of fact to understand the evidence or to determine a fact in issue;
    2. the testimony is based on sufficient facts or data;
    3. the testimony is the product of reliable principles and methods; and
    4. the expert has reliably applied the principles and methods to the facts of the case.”

    The same requirements and rules are typically also required of expert witnesses in state courts. Do keep in mind that your specific state may slightly differ in their expert witness requirements and rules, so we always recommend familiarizing yourself with your state’s respective expert witness service guidelines.
