I have had the privilege of working with Chera Sayers, Ph.D. since shearrived in the Washington, D.C. metro area after teaching economics in several renowned economics departments, in themiddle 1990′s. In fact, I am pleased to say that Dr. Sayers served inmy cases as an economic loss expert long before other lawyers in thisarea discovered her extraordinary talent. Dr. Sayers has served as the forensic economic expert in numerous casesin which I have represented personal injury and wrongful death victims.Often, her testimony involves complex calculations of economic lossderived from a large volume of detailed documents. At all times, Dr.Sayers has shown a mastery of the subject matters at issues and acommand of the facts that is second to none. Her courtroom testimony ispersuasive and fits seamlessly with an ability to communicate difficultconcepts in ways that juries appreciate.Often, economic experts differ when testifying in court. I have learnedto count on Dr. Sayers to win the “battle of experts” with herconfident, intelligent, and common sense analysis of economic issues.Persons and families that are the unfortunate victims of others’ negligence can suffer catastrophic economic losses that sometimes wipeout life savings. Paralyzed and brain injured victims can requireexpensive – and even lifelong – treatment that most families cannotafford. When so much is at stake for clients, I always feel reassuredthat Dr. Sayers is the economist who those families can turn to fortheir day in court.
In the four years that I have known Dr. Sayers, she has impressed me with the quality of her work, her professionalism, and her effectiveness before a jury. Dr. Sayers is able to translate complicated concepts into simple, understandable language, whether in her expert reports or when testifying before a jury. She is equally effective on direct and on cross examination. Because she has been retained by both plantiffs and defendants, Dr. Sayers avoids the stigma of a “hired gun”. Moreover, Dr. Sayers exhibits exceptional research and writing skills. In one case, she was able to uncover crucial data necessary to establish damages that other economists were unable to find. I have found it consistently a pleasure to work with Dr. Sayers, due to her pleasant personality and cooperative, team-oriented perspective. Dr. Sayers as a damages consultant for litigation.
I have used Dr. Sayers in a few of my medical malpractice cases. Not only has her work been accepted by the court as expert testimony, but she has been a pleasure to work with, always being flexible and collaborating with our office when scheduling has been difficult. She is a true professional who will tell you how it is, and places her integrity above all else.
