Introduction

I have testified in court and deposition in California for 15 years regarding lost profits, lost wages, and business valuation. Cases I have been involved in include personal injury, wrongful death, employment discharge, shareholder/partnership disputes, marital dissolution, and landlord/tenant disputes.

Earnings losses have been to self employed people, and business owners as well as salaried or hourly employees. Salaried or hourly losses have been analyzed for private company employees as well as public employees, with analyses of public pensions.
