Richard Troast's CV

Recipient of a dozen Environmental Protection Agency awards, Dr. Troast has built his 40-year career tackling environmental issues such as asbestos in schools, radon exposure and lead contamination. As a senior scientist for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Superfund program, he chaired a Technical Review Workgroup for lead and created another for asbestos, organizing national meetings with federal and state agencies to discuss exposure characteristics. After the EPA, Dr. Troast worked with the U.S. Agency for International Development in the Kingdom of Jordan on the control of industrial waste. As a legislative aide to a U.S. Senator during the 97th Congress, Dr. Troast focused on pending environmental legislation, including Amendments to the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. His consulting work includes complete environmental assessments with emphasis on lead and arsenic exposure and toxicity, site remediation and cleanup of hazardous chemicals, asbestos and water issues. Dr. Troast meets the Daubert and Frey requirements to testify as an expert witness in both federal and state courts.

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
