J. Herbert Burkman & Associates, an economics consulting firm
We provide economic analysis and expert testimony to law firms and their clients.
Our group specializes in measuring economic impacts through the collection of data, development of economic models, and preparation of concise reports. Our work includes the review and analysis of complex information, presentation of statistical summaries, charts, and graphs, and preparation of effective communications. We advise attorneys on pretrial discovery, the precise meaning of our analysis, and the kinds and types of questions that may be asked in the courtroom.
Our work has included the assessment of lost income and benefits in matters of employment actions, accidental injury, wrongful death, and medical malpractice.
We have assessed the present value of complex life care plans, special needs trusts, and the contribution of individuals to the support and maintenance of their households. In collaboration with other experts, we have examined market share and conducted lost profits analysis. We have provided expert testimony in county, state, and federal courts for more than 30 years.
Recent assignments have included measuring the value to society of the settlement of class action lawsuits, valuing multi-class assets in trust, as well as providing valuations for both public and private companies.
Working closely with clients, we accept only a limited number of cases annually. Our work is characterized by careful attention to detail, and we are proud of our accomplishments.
