Expert Engineering and Scientifically Based Forensic Fire Analysis
Dedicated to the preservation of life, property and continuity of operations from fire, process hazards and related perils.

FIRE & RISK ENGINEERING was established to provide expert guidance in the forensic analysis of fires, explosions and related incidents; in addition to post-incident evaluation, this includes the ability to provide direction with regard to the taking of pre-emptive action for protection against these types of losses. Primary expertise in this arena includes scientific and engineering-based knowledge and application of the chemistry, physics and dynamics of fire; the interaction of fire protection, construction and life safety systems; the complexities that affect both conventional and atypical fire behavior and spread; relevant human behavior parametrics that relate to life safety; and the performance of fire protection systems, all of which are dependent variables that are critical to these evaluation. Our solid background, diverse capabilities and responsiveness are especially important for those projects having complex engineering, technological and business risk dynamics.

Disputes about construction performance often emphasize the obvious (leaks, cracks, collapses). Although symptoms define the damage models, technology and design/construction process define the legal issues. Our combined background in architecture, engineering and business makes Drebelbis Engineering uniquely qualified to address these complexities found in forensic engineering assignments. Our areas of specialty include: structural engineering, building technology, construction, project management, building codes, foundations, soil mechanics, retaining structures, water intrusion, moisture related problems, cause and origin of structural failures, professional ethics, building specifications, contract documents, performance of building systems (e.g., roofs, floors, moisture barriers, windows, doors), fire and weather related damage, deterioration due to insects and moisture, corrective construction, slip/ trip and fall. Drebelbis Engineering's services include: engineering investigation, documentation, testimony, and preparation of Certificates of Merit.

Rockstraw is an experienced expert witness with strong communication skills and a unique ability to describe complex phenomena, systems, and processes in a manner that can be understood at any level. This is best demonstrated through two of the many written testimonials Rockstraw has received.

(1) "I retained David to serve as an expert witness and consultant in a construction defect case involving a chemical processing plant. David conducted a comprehensive analysis of the numerous, complicated issues at play in the case and educated me on the process design of the plant in a very short time frame. David patiently walked me through every step of the process, explaining the chemistry and process design in simple terms and analogies that would translate well for any judge or jury. I highly recommend David as an expert in this industry, and look forward to the opportunity to work with him in the future.” ~Ashley Vinson Crawford, Partner, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP on May 16, 2017

(2) "David Rockstraw provided expert testimony in a long (8 week), but successful jury trial for our company against Central Garden & Pet, the nation’s largest garden products supplier. David was able to explain the complex issues to our jury in simple language and connected with the jury well. The jury found that our technology was a trade secret, and that the defendant had improperly copied it. I would trust Dr. Rockstraw in any future chemical process litigation.” ~Dan Walters, Founder/CEO Copper Harbor Company, Inc. on June 30, 2016
