About me

About Derek


I have been serving as a technical construction expert, since 2009, having worked on more than thirty cases. My specialization is in construction defects, damage valuations, accidents, or construction project disruption/delays.  I have also testified on product defects, as well.

In addition to forensic data analysis, I maintain a bench and workshop/lab where I assemble, disassemble, and document material, equipment, for my expert product analysis reports.I have testified both Federally and at the state levels.

I reached executive and senior level of disciplines, beginning in 2000. My background gives me a broad aspect with which to give fair consideration from many critical, distinct perspectives – including designer, builder, specialty contractors, and owner, or stakeholders. I have found that as a construction expert,  having a sympathetic view is a priceless asset but never forgetting the mission. 

My BA in British Literature, from Hunter College, and especially, my studies in rhetoric and literature, are germane to my vocation as a construction expert in the way that I am able to prepare reports and testimony that are both consistent and compelling -a definite benefit when cross examined.

I am presently a Senior Scheduler, at Pavarini McGovern, in NYC.  2019 marked my 37th year in the construction industry. My construction expert practice is independent of PMG, however, I perform as a delay expert.

I take great pride in my work and track record as a construction expert – credits to my acumen and reputation. As a matter of policy, I don’t accept cases if I sincerely believe that I can’t be of service.
