I just finished sitting in and testifying in a 4 day Arbitration. As a Forensic Scientist I was asked how I can be a Scientist if I don’t have a degree in science.

I was asked to evaluate the testimony of percipient witnesses and others who claimed to be expert witnesses. None of these witnesses produced either empirical or practical evidence to make their claim. The Arbitrator left it up to me to provide the data that was the foundation for the conditions presented in the litigation.

My client, Capshaw and Associates, was particularly please when I presented a complete summary of my findings and the business conditions when the Arbitrator asked me for my views
