Today, I am a specialist in the negotiation and resolution of
construction claims and disputes. I am also an expert witness,
mediator, arbitrator and forensic engineering consultant. I
received my engineering degree form Tulane Engineering School in 1966.
However, I started out working as a Construction Engineer back in
1965. I soon began advancing through the various levels of
management in virtually every construction discipline between 1965 and
1973. I started to specialize in the area of contract dispute
resolution in 1973, working primarily with attorneys in all phases of
construction contract disputes, on both public and private projects.
Finally, I entered law school in 1977 and graduated in 1981. During
law school, I continued to work in dispute resolution. I have
specialized in the area of contract disputes for over 35 years. I
presently work as a consultant to both industry and the Bar on all
matters involving construction contract dispute resolution and serve as
an expert witness in construction litigation. I am a mediator and a
commercial arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association. My
projects have included heavy and light industrial plants; chemical and
petrochemical plants; water and sewage treatment plants; underground piping,
utilities and structures; foundations; heavy commercial and institutional
buildings and structures; power plants (nuclear and fossil fuel);
bridges; highways; and, marine facilities.
