"It certainly has been a pleasure to work with an expert who not only knows his stuff, but also knows how to write."  Attorney, New York
"The complex mix of engineering and business in this litigation required an expert with diverse and credible real-life experience. You delivered just what I needed, right when I needed it."  Attorney, San Francisco CA
"The [court] affirmed the summary judgment on both claims. Thank you so very much for your help in this case, and congratulations on a job well done."  Attorney, Lexington Kentucky

"You are a stand up guy. It was a pleasure working with you."  Attorney, Cleveland OH.
"Thanks to you we settled the case right after you took the stand. The [other side] knew it was all over." Attorney, Marshall TX.
"You have a remarkable talent for communicating with a jury, which you demonstrated in the San Francisco trial. Few experts have your ability to take a very complex subject...and distill it into concepts that can be (and were) understood by average people who have no technical background." Attorney, Tulsa OK  

"It was a pleasure working with you. You were definitely the smartest guy in the room."  Attorney, Los Angeles, CA
"I was extremely fortunate to find you after our previous consultant abandoned us on the eve of trial. You must have worked long, late hours to have analyzed the problem within the short time given....such dedication is truly appreciated" Attorney, Chicago
"Thanks to your testimony the [other side] didn't dare put their expert on the stand. You left them with nothing to say." Attorney, Mid West
"I can tell you that we were very pleased with your service and the opinion you had on the case. I think you were able to take a somewhat abstract and brief bundle of information and truly put into words the frustrations that we went through." Client, Houston TX

"Your analysis helped seal the settlement. My client was very pleased with your prompt and concise report." Attorney, Pasadena CA
"You certainly have a talent for writing in a most understandable way. It was a pleasure to read the manuscript and experience the smooth, effortless flow of words and logic."   Technical Editor, Chicago, IL
"I cannot imagine any expert who is better suited to make the complex seem uncomplicated. That rare ability, combined with your down-to-earth and even appropriately humorous presentation of subjects that might otherwise be considered dry, made all the difference in the world."  Attorney, Metairie LA
"So often, experts in complex cases remind me of the old story about the blind men describing an elephant; each describes a portion of the animal, but none grasps the creature as a whole. [However,] you did. You literally pulled the case from the fire and made it possible to negotiate an otherwise impossible settlement"  Attorney, Chicago
"You did a nice job showing that plaintiff's [patent claim] construction, even if literal, is invalid..... By the way, [you did a] very thorough and well organized job." Attorney, Milwaukee WI
"With your excellent work we were able to quickly and fairly settle the case."
Attorney, Chicago IL

"Your ability to explain to a lay audience the workings of patents and of the device itself was extraordinary." Attorney, New Orleans LA
