Economic Damages

Expert Witness Profile

Meta Economic Consulting is a start to finish (consultation to testimony) economic consultation firm. We specialize in evaluating economic damages in personal injury and wrongful death cases. Prior to, and for purposes of, submitting a client's demand, we provide consultation at a reduced rate because we know costs must be kept at a minimum pre-litigation. Pre-demand consultations help the attorney identify and understand all her client's economic losses, not just medical specials. This consultation is verbal only, and for the purpose of the attorney including the substance of the conversation in the demand. After litigation has commenced, Meta Economic Consulting will provide complaint to verdict services, including early strength and weakness analysis, on-time expert reports and testimony.

Our mission is to provide objective and sound economic analysis of the case based on available data, economic theory, and up-to-date estimation methodologies. We will provide our services to both the plaintiff and the defendant, including small and large private law firms, governments and in-house counsel.

Valentina Kachanovskaya, a Ph.D. Economist, heads the company. Dr. Kachanovskaya has deep knowledge of economic theory as well as practical experience with the most recent empirical methods. She also has university and graduate school level teaching experience that makes her analysis precise and her explanations clear. She is fluent in English, Spanish, and Russian. Her knowledge of advanced estimation methods and familiarity with the labor market data as well as her knowledge of civil litigation makes Dr. Kachanovskaya the perfect testifying economic litigation expert who can explain complicated matters to the attorney, judge and jury in clear and simple ways.
