About Us

When you place your case in the hands of Dr. Box Consulting, you are placing your case in the hands of professionals who are committed to achieving the best possible outcome for you and your team.


Packaging and Cargo Securement issues can be extremely complicated. Determining packaging failures often requires forensic analysis, testing, and an understanding of fomulas, industry standards, packaging design and performance. Even Fortune 500 Packaging Corporations can benefit from an Expert Witness because an Expert Witness is an unbiased professional. Professionals that are employees that testify utilizing their expertise are rarely seen as a true expert because they have reason to be biased. If an Expert Witness were to make biased, untrue or coerced statements it could end his/her ability to do that type of work. World Clasee expertise, knowledge, credibility and Ethical Behavior are minimum requirements to be an Expert Witness.
