I currently provide structural engineering consulting services as a sole-proprietor. Much of my focus is on construction litigation, working as a consultant to attorneys and insurance companies, often as their only structural engineering expert. My testimony has involved cases with claims ranging from $500,000 to $35,000,000.
I offer 44 years of experience in the analysis, design, and management of more than 800 projects, including buildings, bridges, and specialty structures. The buildings range from 1,000 sf to 1,000,000 sf, and the bridges range from 100 lf to 22,000 lf. The specialty structures include retaining walls, spillways, levees, large underground vaults, wharves, offshore oil platforms, pipelines, and LNG tanks. My experience encompasses all types of steel, concrete, masonry, and timber construction, as well as all common foundation systems.
