Obliviously your knowledge and expertise in firearms was paramount, but your ability to communicate with the jury congenially and knowledgeably rendered you both memorable and credible. I believe that the demonstrative exhibits which you prepared were helpful to the jury and my client. Finally your handling of the rather aggressive examinations by the deputy  district attorney at the rule 702 hearing and at trial was admirable as you maintained composure and confidence on the stand.     James C. Plott, Attorney 2010 CO

His Curriculum Vitae sheds some light on his skills and values. What is not mentioned is that Mr. Weil is very knowledgeable with rock climbing standards, recreational activity standards and the practices of the professionals from each activity. Mr. Weil provided expert review of our case, made site inspections, appeared for deposition and prepared for trial. Mr. Weil's unique knowledge of film and television along with his mountaineering background as a member of the American Mountain Guide Association was invaluable to our case.
