WZI uses a team approach to litigation support consulting and expert witness services to provide a technical foundation for settling claims or successful trial results. With over 20 years of experience throughout the U.S. in regulatory compliance, environmental investigations, and engineering support in the areas of petroleum engineering, power generation, mining engineering, land development, agricultural operations, and food processing, WZI provides in depth knowledge of a multitude of engineering processes that are critical to the forensic investigation associated with litigation support.

WZI is available to provide many different levels of litigation support such as providing research of scientific issues, document search of publically available records, aerial photograph interpretation, modeling, expert reports, depositions, and trial testimony. We have the ability to manage and database large quantities of data to provide an in-depth analysis of a case. Complex scientific concepts can be presented in layman terms, which is essential in communication of facts of scientific cases.

WZI uses geographic information systems (GIS), 3D visualizations and database tools to organize, analyze and present data to attorneys and provide displays for use in trial.
