“It was a dark and stormy night”, but can you prove it? Craig Setzer can. With his nearly four decades as a practicing meteorologist, Setzer has the ability to study a case, find historical weather data, and create comprehensive and compelling reports to support his conclusions.

With his decades of experience providing live television weathercasts and public speaking, Setzer is at home in front of jurors or any audience. As a boater and sailor, and meteorologist forecasting Atlantic, Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico weather, Setzer is qualified to tackle any admiralty or maritime case.
