Frequently for small to medium claims, the issues in dispute are not highly complex, so why hire a team of experts with the attendant high and wasteful costs?

The specialty of DVCC is to have a single expert to do all the analysis and testimony for schedule delay analysis issues, costs, proper preparation of claims, technical contract specification interpretation and code issues, civil engineering issues and labor/resource productivity losses. With progressive experience in large claims, DVCC can also play an active role in these areas in coordination with other experts. In either case, the key to a good expert is that the person be an expert at being an expert. With over 35 years of experience, DVCC is ready to meet your challenging project recovery/evaluation or dispute resolution needs.
