JEFFREY B. MELTZER

B A C K G R O U N D  I N F O R M A T I O N

I was the owner, founder and CEO of Universal Hardwood Flooring & Moulding, Inc., a distributor and wholesaler of hardwood flooring materials from domestic and international mills, headquartered in West Los Angeles, since 1995. I retired from the real estate industry in 1994, and since then have devoted 100% of my professional life to hardwood flooring. I have been a Nationally Certified Wood Flooring Inspector since 1994, having attained this designation upon completion of training provided by the National Wood Flooring Association and becoming a member of the NWFA-leading to the title of Certified Professional. This training was the result of intense involvement in resolving flooring issues as they arose in my business.

My certifications and expertise has led to my performing hundreds of detailed inspections for individuals, manufacturers, installers, and related institutions. My inspections focus on specific problems presented, the report findings reflect technical knowledge targeted specifically to the issues. I am considered an expert in the field and have rendered opinions in a broad spectrum of case types, from private consultation through trial recognized expert in litigated claims. I have testified in numerous cases in court and facilitated in the settlement without trial in more than twenty.
