I have provided economic consulting services since 1977 and currently limit my practice to consulting services in tort actions involving personal injury, wrongful death, wrongful termination and limited lost profit claims.  In addition, evaluations of the present value of life care plans are undertaken.  Economic appraisals may involve evaluations of the loss of earning capacity, loss of expected earnings, loss of benefits, loss of household services and expected future dollar value medical care needs.

Since 2000, my practice has run at a 74% plaintiff and 26% defense balance.

If you would like to communicate with me at Future Costs, please do not hesitate to send an email message or call (307) 631-0514.  I will be happy to answer questions or discuss details regarding a possible retention engagement.
