Letter:  Steve Langham to John Hatfield, conflict of interest as fire expert


 

Langham and Associates, Inc.

 

November 3, 1997


John B. Hatfield, Attorney at Law

219 W. Washington Street
Greensboro, NC 27401
 

Re: Fire, Pleasant Garden, North Carolina
 

Dear Mr. Hatfield:
 

At your request, I met with Mike Ingold at your office on October 27, 1997. At that time I reviewed photographs of a fire scene and gave an opinion of burn time as requested. After returning to our Morehead City office and speaking with one of my investigators, John Pope, I realized that we had previously conducted a fire scene examination in October 1995. We were employed by the insurer of the property. At the time of my meeting with Mr. Ingold, I was not aware that an examination had been conducted by our company.

Upon review, I feel that the possibility of a conflict of interest may arise, therefore I feel that the proper course would be to discontinue activity at this point. I have enclosed our service bill. If you have any further questions feel free to contact me at your convenience.
 

Sincerely,

 

/signature/

Steve Langham, CFI

President
