Prior Expert

I have been an active Property Manager for over 30 years, the last 20 managing property managers and property management organizations, including the Accredited Property Management company of which I am the managing executive. I have managed all types of residential and commercial properties (except single family homes). As an expert witness since 2015, I have been designated as an expert by both defense and plaintiff in matters related to the Standard of Care required of property owners and property managers in operating commercial and residential properties.
