Expert Witness & Forensic Assessment


The Litigation: Each year thousands of lawsuits, accounting for hundreds of millions of dollars in claims, damages and attorney’s fees, take place in America’s state and federal courts concerning an astonishing number of restaurant and bar legal matters. Winning or losing a case, or the size of the award might come down to the forensic restaurant expert you choose.
The Solution: A key to avoiding costly lawsuits is for management to take the necessary steps to reduce risks and protect customers and employees from being injured, harmed, sickened, maimed or killed. That starts with safety and security training and testing for every manager and employee at every level.
The Problem: Thousands of customers and employees are injured, harmed, sickened, busted, broken, maimed and killed in restaurants and bars every single day in America. The astonishing number and wide-variety of accidents, incidents, illnesses, and catastrophes equate to America’s most dangerous industry.
The Awareness: You cannot protect yourself or your loved ones if you aren’t aware of the hazards. The national and local media absolutely love the celebrity chefs and the interesting restaurant stories but has previously stopped short of exposing the dirty secrets about an industry we all rely on … until now.
The Word: In an age when most struggle to abide by their own words and commitments, I strongly stand behind mine. I believe in personal and professional integrity, honesty, and character and support this belief by promising to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth – so help me God.
