Are expert witnesses paid?

Yes, expert witnesses are usually paid.  Experts are typically hired by one of the parties to a case and are compensated for their time developing their expert opinions.  If fact, if you look at the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, you will see that experts are required to disclose their compensation.  

In some high profile cases experts can be paid quite a bit for their preparation time.
