First, let me say that for the purposes of this thread I will not use, type, state or even RESPOND to the two words I will describe here:
First word - One who is considered to be more than proficient in their field of work, someone who is viewed as being more than a journeyman or professional.
Second word - One who might be giving sworn statements or might (in another sense) have seen something.
I know all of that might sound very “beating around the bush” but I am specifically avoiding those words. For clarification, someone might post the initials but even then I will NOT respond on this public forum.
That said, has anyone here ever provided any of this kind of “information” in a professional capacicty so as to assist one party or the other in relation to legal proceedings?
I have been asked to provide in a paid capacity, statements that (if questioned by the other side’s representation) would call into question some or all of another roofer’s work, their abilities, the process & products utilized & the repairs made on a project that I did not initiate or have the ability to see in any stage other than “assumed completion”.
These statements would be in a manner that would be used to determine if the other roofer performed substandard work or did their work (if not substandard) in a less than timely fashion, thereby causing economic damages to the person who alleges this work was detrimental.
If any of you have done this sort of thing before, whether in assistance for side A (initiator) or side B (respondant), I would be interested to hear from you.
I have not used specific language on purpose; if anyone were to do a search on the internet for my ID (which I also use as my business name) then they would obviously be able to connect the dots. I do not want to endanger my position, nor do I want to do anything that would put any of you @ risk.
Everything done via electronic communication or fax is subject to these proceedings, so I wouldn’t want anyone to get dragged into a position they were uncomfortable with.
