Expert Witness Response E-016568

This sounds like a case that I would be qualified to serve on. I have a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, and I have 17 years of experience in mechanical R&D and design for pumps and automotive components. I have testified in 9 trials and given 32 depositions in state and federal courts for both plaintiff and defense clients. Among those, I have served on 8 patent cases, including 2 trials and 4 depositions. I have some exposure to and experience with trucking technology in this area. Several years ago, I did a study for an oilfield services company on their trucks; they were experiencing rollover accidents associated with air brake systems and were very interested in monitoring systems. I did an examination of pressure monitoring systems and made recommendations accordingly. Patent litigation is definitely a complicated area, and I am very comfortable with the process.
