We feel that out background makes use eminently qualified to offer comprehensive Expert Witness, Forensic Analysis, and Property Condition Assessment Services. After more than 30 years in design and Engineering, Allan Swartz has decided to move the company in a new direction. Design and Engineering Service will be scaled back and eventually eliminated for all but a few clients. Doing this will eliminate conflicts of interest and enable us to fully concentrate on the remaining areas of service. We look forward to continuing to provide for our clients’ needs in these areas for many years to come.
