As our founder, Dr. Deiter had over 50 years of executive, university and consulting experience in the areas of economics and finance.  He was one of the first persons in the state of Florida to testify as an expert economist, and has been evaluating the damages associated with personal injury and medical malpractice litigation since 1966.  He had been qualified as an expert economist in Federal Court and Circuit Courts throughout the United States.  Dr. Deiter received his B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Akron, an M.B.A. in Business Economics from the University of Indiana, and his Ph.D. in Economics from Case Western Reserve. At Deiter, Stephens, Durham & Cook, we strive to continue to uphold the morals and principles established by Dr. Deiter.
