Timber Trespass Assistance/ Expert Witness Testimony

Oftentimes disputes/lawsuits arise as a result of timber theft, misidentified property lines, fraud, and a number of other reasons. I am qualified and experienced in the review of the site in question, review documents pertaining to the lawsuit, provide detailed reports on my findings, and appear in court/ deposition/ arbitration if necessary. My experience can also help in mediations, case preparation, and cross-examination. My services can often help reach a settlement and avoid costly court situations.
