“Our firm has had the privilege of working with Childers Associates on several cases over the years. What we appreciate most about their appraisals is their willingness to dedicate the necessary time and attention to explaining the appraisal process to our attorneys and their ability to communicate that same information to the fact finder at trial.”
William C. Harris, Esq., Harris & James, LLP
I have been practicing condemnation law and have been a Georgia Department of Transportation SAAG for approximately 30 years. In my practice, I have been associated with many appraisers throughout the state, but I can say unequivocally that there is no appraiser who I have dealt with in those 30 years that is more thorough and a better advocate of his opinion than David Childers. I have never seen David be trapped in cross examination because he’s ten steps ahead of the opposing counsel cross examining him. When trying a case, he makes the attorney’s job easy in that he presents well to the least sophisticated and to the most sophisticated, and always prepares very useful, demonstrative evidence. I highly recommend David to anyone who needs an excellent appraiser, and who needs an excellent witness who is comfortable explaining the basis of his opinion to a jury or Judge.
