  • Was there a breach of duty?
  • Was the damage claimed by the plaintiff caused by a breach of duty?

  • Most important is to offer opinions on technical matters bearing on the questions, which would otherwise be difficult or impossible for the judge or jury to assess properly.

"The American College of Forensic Examiners (ACFE) is a not-for-profit, independent, scientific and professional society. We believe Forensic Examiners do not 'win' or 'lose' cases. Forensic Examiners seek only the truth and conduct evaluations, examinations and inquires, and report the true results of their findings in an unbiased and objective manner.”

National Academy of Forensic Engineers

"The National Academy of Forensic Engineers (NAFE) is a professional organization formed in 1982 to advance the art and skill of engineers who serve as engineering consultants to members of the legal profession and as expert witnesses in courts of law, arbitration proceedings and administrative adjudication proceedings.”
