Case: Patents & Intellectual Property, deep-water drill casing handling tool design.

“It has been extremely important for me to have used the services or Mr. Hietpas in a three year long court battle which was just concluded in my favor. The plaintiff made numerous fraudulent allegations against me regarding engineering practices and conduct that were difficult to explain to a jury lacking in engineering expertise or background.  Mr. Hietpas was able to explain all in concise terms, to the jury what the actual truth was.”

 

“In interviews with the jury members after the trial, they all referred to Mr. Hietpas as the star witness of the trial. Should a similar situation ever arise again, I would employ Mr. Hietpas without hesitation.”
