I’ve called Jacquie Vinaccia as an expert at trial regarding attorney fee auditing at least six times, three times in bench trials and three times in jury trials. Jacquie has testified generally as to the categorization of various fees, specifically whether they were related to the defense of an insured or a specific subcontractor. She has also testified on at least a couple of occasions challenging the reasonableness of fees. Obviously, the reason we keep calling her is that in every instance Jacquie was very well prepared, came across personable and authoritative, and the trier of fact accepted all of her conclusions over those of the other side’s competing experts.
