“It was a blast to debut ‘Expert Opinions’ here at the National Disasters Expo, and I received a lot of positive feedback! In an industry that deals with so much on the line, it’s nice to have some fun with it and really showcase how our company is different,” says Bennett.

“Expert Opinions” showcases how the expert team at Omega Forensic Engineering provides unbiased, cutting-edge reporting and clear, concise reporting in the chaotic insurance claim environment.
