Larry Schall has proven to be a very accomplished "civil engineering" expert witness (handling over 50 cases to-date).  He is always accessible to his clients and is relentless in his forensic research. His reports are not written with cryptic words of his trade, but are written in a way to best convey what is important in terms a lay jury can readily grasp.  His credentials in leading a private engineering consulting business as well as a major city's engineering & maintenance department; and his leadership positions held in professional engineering organizations lends gravitas to his work.  I would give the highest possible recommendation for his use in any legal dispute in which civil engineering experience is helpful.

We retained Larry Schall to serve as a consultant and an expert in a case involving a fall on ice at a gas station.  The concrete pad which was between the gas pumps and the store had been constructed in such a way that water accumulated instead of draining.  This, in turn, resulted in standing water every time there was precipitation, and a pool of ice during most of the winter months. Mr. Schall inspected the site and determined that the concrete contractor had not complied with the construction drawings, thus creating a dangerous condition for all customers who went to the gas station.  Larry's work helped us with the evidence needed to establish liability.

Larry Schall assisted my client, a contractor, in resolving a construction dispute. His response to our request was prompt and professional.  When Mr. Schall met with the opposing party, he was very forthcoming in his presentation while also protecting my clients interests.  I would be pleased to use his services again.

I retained Larry Schall to serve as a civil engineering expert witness and consultant in a case where my client injured herself falling into a defective manhole lid.  Mr. Schall was able to identify the city maintenance department responsible for this manhole and attest to the fact that the lid was defective due to lack of inspection and maintenance by the City.  I would certainly use Larry again on other cases involving public or private infrastructure.

I was retained to take over the defense of a construction defect case involving multiple parties on an emergency basis.  Larry Schall helped me absorb a vast amount of information quickly, and was instrumental in helping me understand some fairly complex technical issues in time to meaningfully examine the opposing experts.  With Mr. Schall's help before and after those depositions, the flaws in the plaintiff's case were exposed and I was able to secure a dismissal of my client in exchange for a very nominal payment.  Larry's knowledge, but more importantly his responsiveness and diligence, made a demanding and potentially difficult situation very manageable.

As a single homeowner, I was hesitant to hire an engineer for a sewer construction complaint.  Schall Engineering Consulting, LLC patiently listened to my concerns. Larry Schall personally inspected, measured, and photographed the construction site.  Soon after, Larry provided me with a written, detailed summary in support of my concerns.  His professionally prepared document gave me the foundation and confidence I needed to pursue my claim.

​Our policy at J.E. Dunn Construction is to conduct 3rd party "peer reviews" on all of our projects to help identify potential design and constructability issues during pre-construction. We used Larry Schall for this purpose for over 7 years and I have personally utilized Larry's engineering services on multiple large government projects. He brings great experience to the table and provides valuable insight to the civil aspects of our projects. He conducted these "peer reviews" in a very thorough and professional manner and not only identified potential problems, but worked with us and our design team to find solutions.
