For each case in which we are involved we ensure that our facts and opinions are presented in a clear and concise manner, that we have an in-depth knowledge of all evidence, and most importantly, that we prepare and present a defensible position.  As a result, we are often asked by counsel to identify flaws in an opposing expert’s report and to assist in examining their conclusions and preparing a rebuttal report.
