I am sorry to hear that. What type of expert is being hired? I've seen doctor experts in medical cases only charge $7000 so this does seem excessive.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
