About the presenter:

Dr. Michael L. Brookshire is a Professor Emeritus of Economics at the Marshall University Graduate College in Charleston, West Virginia. Since 1975, he has testified in cases involving the calculation of economic damages. His 1987 book, Economic Damages: The Handbook for Plaintiff and Defense Attorneys, led the way to two more books and approximately 50 book chapters and national, refereed articles on the calculation of economic damages. His most recent (2007) book was tri-edited with Drs. Slesnick and Ward, two other former presidents of the National Associates of Forensic Economics (NAFE). He and Dr. Slesnick have published every-three-year surveys of NAFE members since 1989, about methods, data sources, and issues in forensic economics.
Dr. Brookshire graduated summa cum laude from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville in 1971, earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Economics. He then earned a Ph.D. in Economics in 1975 from the University of Tennessee.
Dr. Brookshire is a charter member and Past President (1993-1994) of the National Association of Forensic Economics, and he was the second Executive Director of the Association from 1999-2001; this association publishes the Journal of Forensic Economics. Dr. Brookshire received the NAFE "Outstanding Service" award in 1999, and he was the national co-chair of the 20th anniversary celebration of the Association in 2006.
Dr. Brookshire and his staff have worked in notable cases over the past two decades, for both the plaintiff and defense sides, such as the Louisville sewer explosion case, the Arrow Air (Newfoundland) crash case, Lockerbie (Scotland) crash case, the 2006 ComAir crash case, the West Virginia "Mountain Top Removal" coal mining cases, the E. I. du Pont C8 case, the Spelter medical monitoring case, the Baltimore lead paint cases, the Sago and Big Branch mine disasters and such class action cases as the Bendectin, Fen-Phen, and Tobacco cases. At the January 2002 meetings of the American Economic Association, Dr. Brookshire was one of four invited panelists discussing the proposed rules of the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund. In 2008 and again in 2017, he was a speaker for the International Academy of Mediators, and he often speaks to associations and groups of trial attorneys.
