Additional Experience

Expert Witness Experience
(Undisclosed) 2022

Expert Witness: Digital Television (DTV), internet, and phone network revenue sharing analysis and ownership dispute

One of the owners of (Undisclosed) contracted Expert to help determine market rates for telecom services over a 20-year period to develop fair use value of the network system providing Digital-TV, phone, and internet services to various condominium properties. In addition, he performed an infrastructure quality and ownership assessment. These efforts involved a site survey and studying all associated service agreements and contracts such as Right of Entry agreements, applicable municipal/state codes/regulations/ordinances, federal (FCC) regulations, industry standards, and best practices. His input helped prevent a scheduled jury trial and force a favorable arbitration.

Expert Witness: Optical Network Design, IT, Operations (represented defendant)
Contacted Expert to represent them in a claim by a telecom Carrier stating that defendant had defaulted on a Carrier Agreement that included delivering 1 G Ethernet service and an upgrade to defendant’s IT network. Expert assessed the proposed fiber optic cable deployment, optical network design, IT technology upgrade, services, and operations. He developed a market study, estimated material and labor costs, and performed a requirements analysis, risk analysis, and network availability study. He also evaluated whether agreements, equipment, material, and telecom Carrier performance comported with industry standards and program management practices. He discovered various industry standards and best practices violations in deployment plans submitted by the Carrier that would place unreasonable risks to the (Undisclosed) IT network. As a result, he helped bring this claim to a favorable arbitration.

(Undisclosed) commission 2007-2018

Expert Witness: Telecom, Information Technology (IT), Wireless, and Optical Networks

Expert provided written and oral testimony in several cases spanning almost a decade. These cases involved the purchase of telecom properties by new market entrants, modification of service quality recording related to 911, cellular coverage, reliability of 911 networks/services, and help in determining penalties or other incentives to improve 911 service levels to the citizens of Vermont. He provided written discovery requests, reviewed resulting discovery, reviewed network design, accessed network reliability resulting in identifying risks, and proposed practices to avoid/mitigate risks in my written testimony. In addition, he occasionally provided oral testimony and answered questions from the (undisclosed), various network experts, and the attorneys representing the telecom Carriers.

City of (Undisclosed) 2011- 2012

Expert Witness: Wireless Services

Expert was engaged by the City of (Undisclosed), to assess wireless services and coverage from all the major carriers and propose alternatives that would eliminate the need for large towers. They performed a drive test measuring the signal level and quality for 3G and 4G services throughout the island and subsequent analysis of existing coverage and how it could be improved. Expert presented findings and recommendations at various informal city/county meetings and formal city council meetings, all open to the public. His conclusions were scrutinized by attorneys and other experts representing citizens and Carriers. His recommendations prevented building a 75-foot tower on the island proposed by the Carriers by proposing alternatives such as Distributed Antenna System (DAS) and small cells utilizing utility poles and rooftop sites to complete island coverage.

(Undisclosed) Subsidiary 1988 – 1990

Expert Witness: Government Communications Project Requirements Analysis and Contract Compliance
Undisclosed contracted Expert to represent them regarding an over $50,000,000 damage claim against Undisclosed's prime contractor on a communications project upgrade. The project involved the software development and advancement of a strategic ground and control system. He was deposed several times by opposition experts and attorneys. However, my testimony was instrumental in the client winning most of their claim in arbitration.
Vendor Selection
Expert has accrued over 30 years of vendor selection developing RFPs, RFQs, requirements tracking, and weighted vender selection process.
