I apply my accounting and economic expertise, using tax, payroll, contract, business, medical, and other records and StatsCan and other statistics, on behalf of either party or both, self-employed and employed, to estimate personal-injury and wrongful-death losses.

Besides lost past income net of taxes, the contingency-adjusted present value of lost future earning capacity, and the survival-adjusted present value of future care costs, I routinely include lost future domestic capacity as the lifetime survival-adjusted present value per lost hour per week. Madam Justice MacNaughton adopted this approach in McCaffery v. Arguello, 2017 BCSC 1460, at 114.

I have regularly given expert, opinion evidence on such matters in the Supreme Court of British Columbia since 1989.

I earned my BSc in Electrical Engineering (Purdue, 1962), MA in Economics (Oregon, 1968), US Certified Management Accountant (CMA, 1983), and Certified General Accountant (CGA, British Columbia, 1986) — now Chartered Professional Accountant or CPA, CGA. To maintain currency, I exceed the 40 hours per year of continuing professional development that professional accountants require.

I have worked professionally for 41 years as an economic and financial analyst and for nine years as a full-time university teacher (three years teaching accounting at Simon Fraser, six years teaching economics at Western Washington).

In Dueck v Mikoula, the Hon Mr Justice H L Skipp wrote: “It is my opinion that the plaintiff should be profoundly grateful to Mr Teasley, as he was the only organized, credible witness to testify. In short, in my humble opinion, the plaintiff owes whatever success he enjoyed to Mr Teasley." [1996 BCSC 3199, 4]
