While at my former firm, I hired Dr. Joseph Odencrantz as an expert on a matter involving a petroleum release from a flower farm that allegedly impacted groundwater supply wells of a local water provider. As part of the litigation process, Dr. Odencrantz served as the Most Qualified Person on behalf of the floral company for three days of deposition on issues related to their storage tanks and petroleum. It was a pleasure working with Dr. Odencrantz, who is both comfortable and experienced giving testimony.

Joe Odencrantz worked for me on a large case involving a 1,500,000 gallon gasoline spill in Texas. I represented the City of Dallas in a hotly contested jury trial against Explorer Pipeline Co. Joe was one of our key experts and testified for two days. The jury really liked him and we were able to settle the case after he testified.
Mr. Gene Scarcello

I have worked with Joe Odencrantz, owner of Tri-S Environmental, on numerous projects from an old gasoline service station site, several dry cleaning facilities and special investigations since 1995. Stonington Properties has had the good fortune of saving hundreds of thousands of dollars of remediation expenditures by working with a pro-business, highly qualified and experienced environmental consultant. Joe has experience working as an expert with various law firms and that experience has been an asset for me with his assistance with several of my development projects.

Mr. Anthony Silva

I have known Joe for twenty years and first met him during his interview process at LFR. Joe was not only successful with the interview process, but also he became one of the leaders in the company managing projects and bringing new business to the company. I worked directly with Joe and was his direct supervisor for his first year at the company. Joe is a water and environmental expert; he excels as a problem solver and researcher. Over the years, Joe was one of the most active persons I knew in the environmental industry and his keen vision had significant impact on policy and regulations in California and throughout the United States.

“I had the pleasure of working with Joe in my capacity as research co-supervisor for his Ph.D. at the University of Illinois. Joe was a special student and really stood out for both the breadth and depth of his interests and abilities. He took all required courses in both the water resources and environmental engineering programs. His Ph.D. thesis included discovery of unique behavior that characterizes models of in-situ bioremediation, and this led to many publications and led to Ph.D. research by other students at Illinois and elsewhere.
