Listed with other top experts in: 

Throughout his career Expert has been recognized as a leader in the industry.

These include CSI, ASTM, National Association of Tile Contractors (NTCA) Tile Contractors of America (TCAA) Ceramic Tile Institute (CTI,) Tile Council of North America [TCA] as well as conducting technical seminars nationally for American Olean Tile Co. He holds several patents relative to the construction industry. He is a member of the American Board of Forensic Examiners, American Bar Association [ABA], American Arbitration Association [AAA]; He is a trained Arbitrator and Mediator and is a Mediator for the New York School Construction Authority [NYSCA].The services of GZA are available nationally and globally.

Construction consultation and expert witnessing involves working with architects, engineers, public agencies, owners, developers, co‑op and condo boards, realtors, the insurance industry and the legal profession. The consultant often faces the difficult question‑how to bridge the gap between being viewed as a problem maker by the opponent and a problem solver by the client. The client in one matter may be the adversary in another. To work with both sides to effectively get the job done takes the kind of experience and knowledge Expert imparts on his clients.
