"I had the pleasure of working with Sheldon Warman for three years. He headed up our Engineering and Technical Services Group. In addition to elevating the group to industry leading standards, Sheldon demonstrated his extensive technical knowledge and professionalism on many projects and in many circumstances. He was instrumental in developing the technical standards for the industry, solving complex building science issues and providing solutions that met the needs of multiple stakeholders."

"I am a practicing patent attorney. In a patent infringement case brought in the Federal District Court for Nebraska, Phil-Insul Corp., dba IntegraSpec v. Reward Wall Systems et al. I engaged Sheldon Warman on behalf of my client IntegraSpec as a technical expert relating to building construction. Although the case never reached trial nor was Sheldon deposed, I was impressed with his technical acumen. He grasps legal concepts of some complexity quickly making for an efficient and inexpensive witness. He supervised some tests conducted by an independent testing lab in the course of preparing a complex declaration in support of my client’s opposition to a motion for summary judgment. I found Sheldon to be cooperative and easy to work with. I would engage his services again in an appropriate case."

"I had the opportunity to engage Mr. Warman in 2013-2014 as a consultant in connection with a litigation matter I was then handling for my prior law firm, McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney& Carpenter, LLP. Mr. Warman provided consulting and expert witness services in the areas of structural engineering and design of insulated concrete form walls. Mr. Warman exhibited attention to detail and had the ability to explain his opinions in simple terms that were both compelling and persuasive. Mr. Warman’s testimony was critical to the case and allowed the matter to settle for a very significant sum in my client’s favor. I can confidently recommend Mr. Warman as a solid consultant and expert witness in his field."
