Expert Witness Testimony
Expert Witness Testimony - Sometimes things don’t go right between you and your builder. That’s a shame, but sometimes you need your own advocate – someone that’s impartial yet fair, thorough and knowledgeable. We are called upon to review construction problems and present our findings in a well-documented report. Most of the time, simply documenting our findings is enough to bring an issue to resolution. Other times, going to court is necessary. We can serve as an ‘expert witness’ in court for all types of proceedings, including arbitrations, mediations, depositions and even trials. We’ve even had some clients tell us that our reports have won their cases for them, even though they didn’t have lawyer!
