One of the associate attorneys at Sayre's firm failed to arrange for the credible expert witness I specifically requested for the trial. At the last minute, the attorney called to inform me that he had hired a different expert witness from another state, someone that no one in my field (the bio-tech industry) knew anything about or had even heard of, who required a $15,000 retainer fee up front. This "expert" arrived at court to testify without bringing any documentation proving he was qualified to testify about the case, nor did he bring any documentation demonstrating the time he spent researching the matter or verifying the research he had done and his conclusions. Just prior to his testimony, during a last minute Vior Dire, my "expert" was deemed by the judge to be too incompetent and ill-prepared to testify, which resulted in the loss of the $3,500,00.00 judgment award that my company was otherwise entitled to receive. The associate attorney from Sayre's California firm just laughed it off and said it didn't matter to him or his reputation because the litigation took place in another state (Texas), so no one would ever hear or know about it. When I returned to California after the trial concluded in Texas, I received another bill for $10,000.00 from the expert witness, which demanded immediate payment, in spite of the fact that he never even testified at the trial! Fred Sayre never even called to apologize for his associate's failure to hire an appropriate expert witness or to make sure he was prepared to testify. I guess I wasn't one of Sayre's "important" clients.
