Forensic Engineering/Expert Witness

As a Licensed Professional Engineer with degrees in Mechanical and Structural Engineering, and over 30 years experience inspecting and evaluating problems with structures, I have an excellent background when it comes to investigating failures or problems with buildings. Whether my client is the owner, buyer, attorney, or insurance company I investigate the causes of failures or problems with structures or components, such as building envelopes. This can include foundations, floors, roofs, exterior walls. Common projects involve structural issues as well as issues involving water-moisture penetrations. Other investigations also involve building materials. I have testified in Pennsylvania District Court, Pennsylvania Court of Common Pleas, and in Federal Court.
