As a professional inspector in the Seattle area and throughout Washington I have observed and reported on the condition of more than 2,700 commercial, institutional and residential buildings. I draw on that large bank of experience to establish a standard of comparison I can bring to my clients’ cases as a consulting and testifying expert.
Attorneys representing plaintiffs and those representing defendants have retained my services. In the course of providing consulting services I have performed site inspections, provided consultations, written reports, analyzed opposing expert witness reports, and testified. The cases I have worked on involved personal injury or death. My credentials as an expert have never been subjected to legal challenge.
If your case involves the complexities of building safety, building codes, or inadequate maintenance, please consider me to augment your legal team. I can use my skills and knowledge to better inform counsel, the clients, and the trier of fact.
