Calling witnesses to deposition is a long process that needs to check quite a few boxes, particularly the fee that has to be paid for these witnesses’ production. Individuals are required to be paid for their time and mileage to the office or courthouse.
However, not all witness fees are created equal, and not all states actually require witness fees. The rules surrounding them are also exceedingly different based on the state. Consequently, it can get difficult for attorneys to determine when a witness fee must be sent and how much it should be.
