This website,, is the outlet for information concerning various aspects of the professional services that I offer.

Since late in 2002 my primary professional practice has been as a testifying expert in litigation involving computer software - mostly patent cases, but including a sprinkling of other issues ranging from trade secrets to disparagement.

I now offer technical consulting as a non-testifying expert, taking on small or short-term tasks such as training and assisting other experts or research and writing in support of the attorneys or other experts in a case.

And, just in case you did not catch this earlier: Rebuttal Reports a Specialty

The experience of two decades as a testifying expert makes me very efficient in taking on new assignments. One good way of determining whether I can assist with your case is to request a CV, recommendations from previous clients, a draft engagement agreement, or other available materials.
