Our philosophy is a simple one: an empirical approach that harnesses the power of the scientific method can yield extraordinary solutions to even the most difficult challenges.  We may not be able to solve every problem, but when things seem the most bleak, it is better to light even a small candle than to curse the darkness.

In association with a small group of independent experts in an array of disciplines, we provide evaluations, expert witnesses, and institutional & legal consulting throughout the United States and across the globe.
