I investigate a broad range of electrical phenomena which can lead to damage, personal injury, or death. These include electrical shocks and electrocutions, grounding and lightning protection, appliance faults, codes and standards, electrical and electronic failure, industrial accidents, power systems, control systems, communication systems, processes failures, and software.
Mr. McFarland’s expertise in engineering and applied research is recognized by legal, insurance, industry, and government clients alike which make him an ideal electrical engineer expert witness.
My practice covers various cases involving electrical, electronic, or telecommunications phenomena.
I work in both civil and criminal cases for the plaintiff or defense.
I have worked with plaintiff and defense lawyers on civil cases in several fields, including wrongful death, personal injury, product liability, medical malpractice, class action, insurance claims, auto accidents, contract disputes, and more.
Some criminal cases I’ve worked on have involved securities fraud, homicide, sex trafficking, and home invasion. The criminal cases usually center around cellular, mobile phone, GPS, and other electronic evidence.
I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to gain excellent academic credentials.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA. My first Master’s degree is in Telecommunications Engineering, and my second Master’s degree is in Engineering Management- both from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I also completed about 2/3 of an MSEE degree in RF engineering from Drexel University in Philadelphia before moving to Colorado.
Lastly, I procured the highest credential available in the quality sciences: the Six Sigma Master Black Belt. This required eight graduate courses (24 credit hours) in applied statistics and research at the University of Colorado.
