General Statement of Qualifications and Experience

BACKGROUND:
Steven N. Siegler, ASA, FRICS is a founder and the Executive Managing Director of Equity Development Systems, Ltd., (EDS). EDS is a global Valuation, Collateral Assets Management, Dispositions, and Mergers & Acquisitions advisor and Private-Equity investor.

Steven is an Elite-Rated member of the peer-voted SuperAppraisers® Global Network of internationally-recognized valuers, and he is most often engaged to provide multidisciplinary appraisal reviews and appraisal expert-witness testimony and litigation support services to attorneys and law firms throughout the world. He has personally prevailed in billions-of-dollars at issue in litigation in U.S. courts, international tribunals, and Alternative Dispute Resolution in some of the world’s most important—high-profile—and valuable valuation-related cases. Steven recently successfully represented Stephen M. Case, co-founder of AOL and former Chairman of AOL Time Warner in connection with the multibillion-dollar lawsuit brought against Mr. Case and other Case family members by the former owners of Grove Farm in Hawaii. Mr. Siegler is the only RICS accredited expert witness in the Americas and one of only a handful of such expert witnesses in the world holding the much-coveted RICS Expert Witness Accreditation Service (EWAS) Certification.

Mr. Siegler holds TS Clearance with the U.S. Government and he is uniquely qualified to practice before U.S. Government agencies in national-security-related and in other sensitive state matters. His appraisal reviews have been cited by U.S. regulators as "The measure by which all appraisal reviews should be judged”. The FDIC recently solicited Mr. Siegler to write, implement and manage the new National Appraisal Review Program for the U.S. Federal Reserve and all other interagency regulators as part of Dodd-Frank.

Steven is an Accredited Senior Appraiser with and was honored to serve as the founding International Chairman of the Appraisal Review and Management discipline of valuation of the American Society of Appraisers (ASA) from 2002 - 2011.  The ASA is an international organization of appraisal professionals and it is the oldest and only major appraisal organization representing all of the disciplines of appraisal specialists.
