Expert Witness Testimony

As recognized experts in the field of acoustics, the Valcoustics staff are often called to testify before the courts (civil and criminal) and other tribunals (Ontario Municipal Board, Environmental Assessment Board, etc.) to present the company’s work on a specific project, to critique the work of others or offer expert testimony on matters relating to acoustics. Dr. Al Lightstone has appeared as an expert witness over eighty times.

Examples of projects include official plan amendments, rezonings, and OMB hearings where compatibility of residential uses with neighbouring industrial or commercial uses or with the environment in general are major issues
