As specialists in personal property, we have longstanding experience in litigation support, providing expert witness services, identification and valuation of personal property, documentation of fraud and appraisal review. We have worked on hundreds of damage and loss claims involving theft, moisture, mold, smoke and/or fire damage, and seek to maintain a balanced plaintiff/defense caseload. A well-written, well-supported, truthful report can help resolve legal disputes fairly and efficiently, often before going to trial, saving time and costs for all parties involved.
