Tim Behrens, P.E., CFI, CFEI, CVFI and ACTAR Certified
Forensic Mechanical Engineer Based in Phoenix Serving The Entire Country


"To Whom It May Concern: I recently had the pleasure of working with Tim Behrens. He had originally been hired by a liability insurance carrier to investigate the cause of a fire protection system sprinkler premature discharge, which had caused almost $2,000,000 in damages to a hotel which was under construction at the time. I represented the hotel owners in litigation arising out of that incident.

I can say without hesitation that Mr. Behrens performed an excellent fact-finding and forensic investigation of this incident. He did an excellent job documenting the scene, photographing and obtaining evidence, interviewing important witnesses, excluding other potential causes, etc. In the end, Mr. Behrens' report and supporting documentation became the framework for a successful result at trial.

Mr. Behrens was professional and cooperative throughout the litigation, and his assistance was always timely and forthcoming. I highly recommend Mr. Behrens to anyone who is considering retaining him to perform any type of forensic investigation."

Very Truly Yours,
