Sample engagements where Chuck has been retained include:

  • Affidavit as expert on reasonableness of preservation practices during 2002-2005 submitted in Delaware insurance coverage court proceedings in 2015.
  • Expert report submitted in AAA arbitration on counsel’s duties to monitor preservation and avoid spoliation, resulting in favorable settlement after first day of hearings.
  • Expert report for family law counsel regarding adverse party’s duty to preserve and, with forensic colleague, adverse party’s use of hard drive wiping agent, and subsequent oral report to mediator during successful mediation of marital dissolution issues.
  • Expert report on best practices under California law regarding early identification of electronically stored information potentially relevant to claims, and circumstances in which email auto-delete functions may or may not need to be suspended.
  • Retained as expert in law firm partnership dispute concerning alleged spoliation of evidence; project halted when court determined that expert testimony was not necessary.
