An expert with respect to the Medicaid reimbursement system, Dr. Fairley was the first to identify and quantify an unfair bias in the way the system assigned payments to the states. By introducing the concept of a “Penalty Bias,” he helped return millions of dollars in penalties to a coalition of states.

Dr. Fairley has been recognized as an expert statistician in numerous federal and state courts, as well as in settlement negotiations, arbitrations, and mediations.

William Huber Data Analysis Expert PhotoWilliam A. Huber, PhD, Statistician, Mathematician, and Data Analyst is an Accredited Professional Statistician (American Statistical Association) with a PhD in mathematics from Columbia University.

When New Jersey implemented new regulations to control groundwater pollution, Dr. Huber predicted that prominent manufacturing plants would face unexpected and unfair financial penalties. Using statewide data obtained through the FOIA, he created and analyzed a database of monitoring records to determine which facilities would be affected. Working closely with industry, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, and the public, Dr. Huber recommended changes to the regulations which were quickly adopted, leading to a fairer, more effective program that remains in use today.

Dr. Huber mines data to uncover valuable insights that improve critical business decisions to boost company and product performance.

Stephan Michelson, PhD
Statistical Analysis Expert

Hendersonville NC 28791
USA

Stephan-Michelson-Statistical-Analysis-Expert-Photo.jpg
Stephan Michelson, PhD, has spent over 45 years working in the field of Statistics, analyzing complex legal issues, from developing data, to analysis, to presentation as an expert witness.

President of Longbranch Research Associates (LRA), Dr. Michelson is responsible for staff and facilities administration and quality of product output. He is also the director of litigation analyses and research projects. He spent many years serving on the faculty at Reed, Harvard, the Brookings Institution, and the Urban Institute.

Litigation Support - Dr. Michelson specializes in Statistical Analysis in Litigation. He and his team at Longbranch have worked for private attorneys and public attorneys in hundreds of cases, but their recent clientele consists only of public attorneys, state’s attorneys, and U.S. attorneys. This is because their policy is to pursue truth, independent of their client’s position.

LRA is successful because they find the best statistical approximation to real world events, and can determine, within that model, if biased decisions are being made. They have found data when attorneys thought none existed. They pay attention to legal literature cases and law review articles, as well as to statistics literature. LRA understands the institutions involved in a case, so that their models are relevant, understandable, and correct. Their analyses speaks to judges, because they speak to the issues the judge has to decide upon.

Methodologically sophisticated, Dr. Michelson specializes in complex legal cases, presenting methods and results honestly and clearly, with graphics to represent his data. He derives fact from data, and sometimes derives the data itself. See Connecticut v. Gibbs (state court), Rhode Island v. Tremblay (state court), Koger v. Reno (federal court), Coker v. Charleston School District (federal court), etc. Dr. Michelson has testified across the United States, in the state of Washington, Georgia, New Hampshire, and many others.

Within the field of statistics in law, Dr. Michelson has special expertise and interest in certain subjects, including:
  • Class Certification: Fulfilling the requirements, especially after Dukes v. Walmart
  • Daubert and its Progeny: How should a judge determine who is an expert?
  • Discrimination - Administrative law, federal law, and state law, regarding many areas of employment, jury selection, and criminal penalty
The economist who wants to work on legal questions needs to know something about law, but he does not need a J.D. Analysis of jury selection, from which some identifiable group of the population allegedly has been excluded, has historically established the statistical approach to discrimination in selection of all kinds. The leading article by Michael Finkelstein, to which analysts still today pay homage, was published in 1966, providing the basis for the Supreme Court's 1977 finding of jury discrimination in Castaneda.

    We've all seen the TV crime shows where the forensic technician opens the grainy surveillance, then zooms in on a tiny face, license plate or scrap of paper, hits the enhance button and, magically, the image becomes sharp and clear (accompanied by appropriate background music).
