GUIDELINE 11. EXPERT WITNESSES
(a) Counsel should be familiar with Maryland Rule 2-402(g)(3) concerning fees associated with expert depositions.
(b) In the event a dispute arises as to the reasonableness or other aspects of an expert's fee, counsel should promptly confer and attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute without the involvement of the Court.
(c) If counsel cannot resolve the dispute, the expert's deposition should proceed on the date noted unless the Court orders otherwise, and the dispute respecting payment should be brought to the Court's attention promptly. For examples of factors that may be considered by the Court in determining whether a fee is reasonable See Kilsheimer v. Dewberry & Davis, 106 Md. App. 600 (1995).
