What People Say

"We engaged Greg Jones as our expert witness for independent assessment of construction work. These works were undertaken by a builder with whom we were in a legal dispute. We requested Greg perform invasive investigation of the existing structure including a retaining wall and structural support steelwork, assessment of carpentry and painting, production of written reports of all investigation works for submission to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT), and attend the QCAT court hearing as expert witness to give evidence and for cross-examination. We found that Greg performed these tasks extremely well. He was scrupulous in his unbiased and honest assessments, both written and verbal and responded to the rigors of cross-examination with clarity and displayed obvious professionalism and integrity. This was very much in our favour in the overall outcome of the legal dispute. We highly recommend Greg for any similar role."
