Litigation Consulting/Expert Witness

M+A have qualified as experts on ADA and accessibility issues in state and federal court, representing both plaintiffs and defendants.

Peter Margen has consulted on hundreds of lawsuits and served as an expert in many landmark accessibility-related cases defining the application and scope of the ADA including; CDR v. Caltrans, Arnold v. United Artists Theaters, Lieber v. Macy's, Barden v. Sacramento, ZumBrunnen v. Mission Ranch, etc.

We are experienced in meeting the rigorous criteria and timelines in litigation situations and understand how to prepare expert declarations and reports in accordance with state and federal court rules.

We are well versed in the ADR process, Federal Northern District General Order 56 and participate in numerous mediation sessions to effectively resolve accessibility disputes.

We are also hired to monitor compliance with class-action settlement agreements, and often serve as joint experts for both sides in resolving issues.
