How do you charge for depositions and prep time? My client was involved in an MVA and is suing the other driver. His attorney already has copies of my SOAP notes. Now, they want to depose me. I have several other clients in similar situations so I anticipate this will come up again.
How do you charge for doing a deposition? Do you charge your regular hourly rate? Are there ethical and/or legal guidelines (for charging) I should be aware of? What about travel to & from the site of the deposition (this one is in another city) - charge time? Mileage? Or just write-off the mileage like other business travel?
Thanks for the advice.
