Construction expert witness Derek Graham has been serving as a technical construction expert, since 2006. He provides case preparation and management, analysis reporting and testimony for both plaintiff and defense attorneys. He is typically called to provide reports for construction defects, damage valuations, accidents, and construction project delays, but has now testified on product defects, as well. In addition to forensic data analysis, he maintains a bench and workshop/lab where he assembles, disassemble, and documents material, equipment, and product analysis.
Mr. Graham, is a four-decade seasoned, industrial and construction expert witness, who has reported on over thirty litigations, testified Federally, and in several states. He has been active in the construction industry since 1982. His many years in the field working his way up from laborer all the way to the executive level gives him a broad aspect with which to give fair consideration from many perspectives, including designer, builder, specialty contractors, and owner.
What Makes Me Your Best Choice for a Construction Expert?
Derek’s four-decade career includes eleven years in the field as a mechanic, general contractor, and millwright gives him extensive expertise in materials and installation. His twenty-four years administrative experience as a project manager, Director of Operations, and Senior Scheduler enable keen and compelling insights.
Exactitude & Veracity
Getting to the heart of a complex legal matter requires tenacity and smarts. Derek prides himself on his minimal margin of error, and the unimpeachability of his expert reports and testimony. Indeed, most opposing attorneys seek a settlement without even retaining an expert to try to rebut what they perceive as compelling testimony.
Integrity & Honesty
The integrity of an expert is a critical indicator of how a judge or jury may perceive an expert’s testimony. Many experts lack the educated, confident, and neutral aspects and positions that an expert is expected to evoke. Derek is both a ‘construction’ expert, and an ‘expert’ expert, on which he prides his stellar reputation.
