Has not responded to all efforts to collect. Defense owes me additional 1,000, plaintiff has informed them they have not responded. Court 12/13. Deposition given want to send demand payment letter to include what defense owes me informing him if not received by certain date will WITHDRAW as his expert. Can I do this? Can I inform him I am withdrawing under these circumstances? No written contract. Have never had one in 17 years

I don't know hat the controversy is. If you don't get paid, you have no obligation to appear. At least that's the way it would work in New York. Now, if I could get an expert for $1300 in a med mal case, I'd hand deliver the check. My word! NY experts are ten times the money--no exaggeration. I might even buy dinner at a fancy restaurant.
