As an expert, I efficiently and comprehensively assess the issues in dispute and provide counsel a thorough analysis and understanding of the problems, responsible parties, cost to repair, and design solutions, as requested and required. My expert consulting experience varies from simple money issues to multi-party complex disputes. I have completed cases for counsel working on behalf of architects, general contractors, subcontractors, and real estate developers in Colorado, Maryland, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Missouri.
