Expert Witness Services

Complex business disputes can arise anywhere in the world over a diverse set of circumstances. In these disputes, it is often the testimony of an expert witness that decides who will prevail. Simply stated, the role of the expert witness is to provide objective opinions to the court on technical matters that require specialized knowledge or expertise. To be persuasive, expert witnesses must be both experienced and knowledgeable in their field and must also be perceived as independent and objective.

Throughout our many years of service, David Dotson, P.E. has been called upon by property owners, buyers and sellers, attorneys, insurance companies and contractors to act as an expert witness in a myriad of issues. Litigation support services include:

Forensic investigations involving the failure analysis of structures or products
