Electrical Investigations

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.

What sets me apart is my research driven approach, multi-disciplinary background, practical experience, and extensive education. I comfortably present complex, scientific information in a meaningful and easy to understand manner.

Ensure Defensible Methods Are Informing Your Decisions

Judicial decisions may be based on testimony from an expert whose opinion may (unknowingly) be based upon irreproduciable research. The research methods courts accept to gain knowledge must be reliable and follow established and defensible procedures.
The financial and legal consequences of improper scientific research methods are enormous.

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.

Yes, my practice is nationwide.

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 work for both plaintiff and defense lawyers on civil and criminal cases.
Yes, I am a licensed and Board certified engineer. My Board certification comes from the National Academy of Forensic Engineers. Additionally, I am an NCEES “Record Holder, ” meaning I can typically get licensed in any state within 30 days.
I am accepting new cases and am flexible and available on my clients’ schedules. I take pride in meeting all my clients’ deadlines.
My rates are very reasonable. I have two set rates for testimony time, such as in deposition or trial. The second, a lower rate, is for all other time (research, report writing, etc.) I collect an initial retainer and invoice against that.

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.

I have over 25 years of experience as an engineer and ten years of experience in quality sciences and applied research.
Yes – I have testified on behalf of the plaintiff and defense at criminal and civil trials.
