Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Yes I would ask for payment for your hourly rate for the hours in deposition.I would not agree to do it otherwise.Tell them you consider yourself an expert in your field and that you are entitled to be paid as such otherwise you aren't going to agree to be deposed.Hold out for what you want here and get it in writing that they will pay you . This is more than reasonable as you are burning valuable time to be deposed.
You are so welcome.I appreciate the chance to help
If you can rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
