– Michael R. Lunsford, Attorney at Law

[OSHA] found him very straightforward and very
knowledgeable on the specific subjects we were looking for—distinguishing between types of cranes, which ANSI standards apply to a particular crane based on its characteristics, and which ANSI standards apply to a particular crane based on its characteristics, and how long it typically takes to create the kind of crane damage found in this case. He has a lot of experience as an expert witness but has not previously testified for OSHA, which can be nice
feature to boost his credibility. I wouldn’t hesitate to use him on a future case.
