Statistical Analysis, Sampling, and Modeling Expert Witness
Salt Hill Statistical Consulting provides expert statistical review, sampling, estimates and analysis to law firms, corporations, and government entities. We support attorneys with statistical analysis, sampling, review and critiques in commercial litigation.
We estimate key amounts at issue, review and critique opposing expert reports, compose expert reports, and provide expert testimony in court settings. Our focus is not only on finding the right solution, but also on explaining and presenting that solution to audiences that have no background in math or statistics.
Litigation Support Services
In our work in litigation we always assume our client wants to know the right answer, whether or not it favors their position. We work to uncover both promising analyses and problems with the data, and believe our clients want to know the facts sooner rather than later. Using statistical sampling and modeling techniques, we have the capability to sort through, and make sense of, massive quantities of data. Quantitative methods involving missing data and adjustment for bias also allow us to make valid, unbiased estimates in matters where information is very limited and in situations where data is missing.
