Deposition Policy

Depositions are scheduled by Sherri Dunn at 314-909-1359.

Please do not send deposition notices until the date you have chosen is confirmed by this office. It is possible the same dates have been given to multiple attorneys.

Payment: The prepayment fee for the deposition is for the first hour or any portion thereof. If the deposition is longer than one hour, the attorney will be billed for each additional half-hour or any portion thereof. The deposition fee must be received within 14 business days prior to the deposition or the deposition date will be cancelled with no notice to your office. Please make check payable to Dr. Matthew Collard and mail to: 2325 Dougherty Ferry Rd., Ste. 100, Des Peres, MO 63122 ATTN: Depositions

Cancellation/Rescheduling: We require at least five (5) business days’ notice of cancellation for return of the prepayment fee, otherwise the money will be non-refundable. In the event there is a deposition cancellation with a reschedule, notification of our office greater than two (2) business days prior to the scheduled deposition will allow for application of pre-deposition payment to new date. Notification less than two (2) business days prior to scheduled deposition will result in retention of prepayment by Orthopedic Specialists and will require a new prepayment as described above.

Itemized Statement: If an itemized statement is required, please let us know five (5) days in advance, as we may need to obtain the information from our inactive records.

Production of Additional Materials: In the event you require production of additional materials, other than patient records, for the deposition, including but not limited to biographical material, bibliographies, research on testimonial history, etc., such work will be billed per hour, and must be paid along with the prepayment in advance of the deposition.
