Who Advise & Consult is and What We Do
Eugene Peterson started Advise & Consult, Inc. in 2001 after being hired or subpoenaed to appear in court as a construction expert witness. After getting the standard court fee for his appearance he decided that if he was going to be an expert witness, he was going to do it right – and get paid better for it!
Advise & Consult is now a nationwide company with 23 construction expert witnesses located in offices in 15 different states all across the United States. Our company has been involved in hundreds of cases involving just about every aspect of commercial and residential construction. We have been involved in home owner associations, single family homes, strip malls, high rise buildings, developments, schools, and just about everything in between.
We specialize in helping attorneys and insurance companies with construction defect resolution cases, insurance claim cases, estimates, appraisals and umpire services. We offer expert witness testimony, arbitration, mediation and depositions.
