We found an expert with over 50 years of experience in plastics. With a BS in Chemistry and PhD in Organic Chemistry, he led the materials science institute for a top university after spending 30 years working for companies in the plastics industry including a plastics consultancy. Well respected in his field, he was the chairman of a special group in the Society of Plastics Engineers and President of his regional chapter. He had co-authored a book on plastics analysis, published many papers, and lectured extensively on subjects related to his expertise. While a consultant, he specialized as an expert witness on product liability litigation and had testified extensively in the United States and abroad. The case was settled extremely satisfactorily in the plaintiffs favor with the attorneys securing a much larger settlement from the defendants than they had agreed to in prior litigations.
