Litigation Support

Donan’s Litigation Support team provides clients with unparalleled service and expert testimony support to meet a range of litigation needs. Whether you’ve retained a seasoned Donan expert for a specific case, or simply need a deposition from the project manager on a claim that is now in court, you can be confident that all of our experts are well prepared and knowledgeable.

Engineers and fire investigators are superior Subject Matter Experts, but courtroom acumen requires its own set of skills and expertise. Donan has developed a dynamic litigation support program that provides training and mentoring to all forensic engineers and fire investigators. Consequently, Donan’s experts are able to successfully explain and demonstrate their investigation, from hypothesis development and testing to their conclusions. And they can present these elements to any jury clearly, concisely and with conviction.

The Litigation Support team partners closely with our client-attorneys to ensure project managers are provided with all relevant materials, as well as important dates and deadlines. We also coordinate meetings between our experts and counsel. These meetings provide a forum to discuss the case and testimony at length, and to fully vet all opinions and address any inconsistencies, faulty logic or possible challenges.
