Mediation and Expert Witness

Expert Testimony In Construction Defect Cases

I bring thorough knowledge of every aspect of the building process, from luxury homes to retail commercial buildings. In my career I have always sought to build architecturally significant structures, often with an environmental responsibility. The creation of these buildings often required innovative and complex approaches.

As an experienced residential construction manager in Marin, Sonoma, Napa and beyond, I work with attorneys to:


  • Give expert opinions on the value of work performed
  • Examine all contractor billings and change orders for legitimacy
  • Validate cost of materials, and in some cases, determine if charged materials were actually used on the site in question or taken to another project.

    “I am told I am an excellent expert witness testifier”.

    As a residential general contractor building close to 230 architecturally challenging structures from Marin County on the West Coast to the Rocky Mountains I have mediated disputes between highly invested, sometimes highly emotional individuals. I have worked out very interesting and complex solutions between owners and contractors.

    I am certified by CDR Associates in Boulder, CO after an intensive course in mediation.

    Speaking Spanish fluently is invaluable in facilitating communications at construction sites.

    “Yo soy un mediador quien habla español con confianza“
