The expert economists of the Sobel Tinari Economics Group have evaluated economic damages for individuals who have been wrongfully incarcerated. These damages include lost earnings, as well as the loss of earning potential resulting from lost educational and career opportunities. Damages may also consist of lost fringe benefits and future medical costs (e.g., for ongoing therapy) and, in some cases, lost services to plaintiff’s family members.

We work closely with attorneys and their clients to obtain the necessary information and data required for the proper calculation of economic damages.
