Trusted Forensic Economic Expert and Consulting Services

Discover why lawyers throughout the United States turn to FHL for economic loss valuation, expert consultations, economic testimony services, and more.

Forty Years of Industry-Leading Excellence

Our firm has provided economic consulting and expert witness testimony since it was founded in 1982 by Peter Formuzis, Ph.D. and Joyce Pickersgill, Ph.D., both tenured Professors of Economics at California State University, Fullerton. The firm became Formuzis, Pickersgill & Hunt, Inc. in 1995, when Tamorah Hunt, Ph.D. became a partner, and then Formuzis, Hunt & Lanning, Inc. in 2017, when Timothy Lanning, M.A. became a partner following Joyce Pickersgill’s retirement.

During the last 40 years, our forensic economists have provided expert witness testimony in well over ten thousand depositions, arbitrations and trial testimonies in both state and federal courts. Throughout that time, we have established a solid reputation for top quality economic analyses and an unwavering commitment to integrity in each and every case.

FHL provides forensic economic consulting services in a variety of civil litigation matters, including personal injury, wrongful death, employment, business loss and insurance bad faith. We are retained by attorneys throughout California and the United States to prepare economic loss calculations and reports for all stages of litigation, from mediation to deposition and trial.
