3When can I expect payment on invoices submitted?
The typical payment turnaround time can be anywhere from 35-45 days, depending on the insurance carrier.

5Why did I receive only partial payment for my deposition invoice?
The plaintiff’s counsel is responsible for payment of the portion of the invoice that is related to the actual time spent in deposition at a rate of $350 per hour. The remaining balance of the invoice is covered by the insurance company. Therefore, payment will often be received in the form of two checks, one from the plaintiff’s counsel and the other from our firm or the insurance company.
6How can I ensure that my deposition invoices get paid in a timely fashion?
Since plaintiff’s counsel is responsible for the actual time spent in deposition, if you include the start and end time of the deposition on the invoice, the invoice can be submitted for payment as soon as it is received. Additionally, any deposition fees should be separated from fees associated with preparation for the deposition, travel time to and from the deposition and any other fess or expenses related to the deposition.
