Construction consultation and expert witnessing involves working with architects, engineers, public agencies, owners, developers, co‑op and condo boards, realtors, the insurance industry and the legal profession. The consultant often faces the difficult question‑how to bridge the gap between being viewed as a problem maker by the opponent and a problem solver by the client. The client in one matter may be the adversary in another. To work with both sides to effectively get the job done takes the kind of experience and knowledge Expert imparts on his clients.
