About Philip J. O’Keefe
You’ve landed on the Engineering Expert Witness Blog. It has the distinction of being one of the longest running engineering related blogs on the internet and is routinely used by college students as a source of supportive technical material, including those at Penn State University and the 100 Top Resources for Electrical Engineers on the Electrical Engineering Schools website.
I’m Phil O’Keefe, President of EngineeringExpert.net, LLC, and author of this blog. As a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) and Model Law Engineer (MLE) with more than 30 years’ experience in mechanical design, electrical design, industrial control system design, manufacturing, and electric utility power generation, coupled with more than a decade’s experience in engineering expert witness consulting and forensic engineering, I’ve been privileged to serve many attorneys, insurance professionals, and private businesses, providing them with engineering expertise to enable them to be more successful at what they do. Areas of special interest include intellectual property and patent infringement, personal injury, product liability, and professional malpractice.
My technical services include providing expert witness and litigation support, forensic analyses, product development consulting, intellectual property consulting, and technical training in both mechanical and electrical engineering subjects.
What makes me different from most engineers is that I’m also a visual artist, capable of producing illustrations, CAD drawings, museum quality scale models, and many things in between, all with an aim towards making it easier for the nontechnical to understand complicated subject matter. In addition, I work closely with a specially trained 3D artist to create meticulously accurate animations of subject matter that require moving, live-action portrayal to make clear their functionality. This is particularly useful in patent disputes, where the patents in suit and prior art are often hard to decipher.
This blog focuses on engineering and other technical topics. Material is presented through a variety of approaches, and the technical messages will sometimes be peppered with cartoons to bring the message home in a humorous way.
