Meet Expert Witness
Mark Meshulam

“When I’m involved in a dispute as an expert witness, I find the assignment challenging and stimulating. The issues can be multi-dimensional, requiring analytical thinking that starts with the issue at hand and expands to encompass the greater picture, the causes, the participants, and the environment which gave rise to the dispute. As an expert witness, I focus on supporting the efforts of the attorney, where the facts of the case are embedded in the technologies of the construction trades.”
