FGroup provides on-going expert witness, litigation support and mediation services for cases requiring the expertise, education, and experience of a third-party Independent Licensed Land Surveyor.
Our Principal, Frank S. Ferrantello, PLS, has provided support services for cases including accident scene documentation and analysis, trip and fall surveys, photo analysis, slope analysis, dispute mediation, “standard of care issues”, construction errors & omissions, encroachment and all types of title, boundary, and easement issues.
In most instances, we can respond and mobilize survey crews within 48 hours or less if required.
Past cases include historical boundary retracements, exhibit preparation from ground-based or historical aerial surveys, 3D scans and supporting legal services including
mediation, deposition, testimony, and appearances in a jury trial.
Color exhibits can be prepared and digital data and photos can be integrated to help clarify critical issues.
Our Principal holds a Bachelor of Engineering from Hofstra University. That background, combined with over 20 years of personal day to day experience and the entire Ferrantello support team makes him uniquely qualified to assist in legal matters.
