Kathy Poppers Expert Art Appraisals

Consult with me before you buy, sell, donate, or insure fine art


Witness, Deposition and Litigation Services

As an Accredited Senior Member of the American Society of Appraisers, I am a qualified fine art expert for the legal profession and have worked on many court cases. Additionally, I have participated in litigation support and expert witness training via SEAK. In 2008, I prepared a witness to testify in a case concerning recovered artifacts from the Titanic, in accordance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. I have been hired for dozens of cases to prepare appraisals that might have ended up in court; cases are frequently settled after my report is submitted.

Sometimes, in expert witness situations, property is simply mis-identified. Someone believes they own a painting when in fact they own a reproduction of a painting. They are frequently mis-informed by the seller.

Although it is preferable to have plenty of time to research and prepare for a case, rush work is available at a special rate. I am available for remote and in-person testimony, please contact me for details.
