About Us

At Rappaport Consulting, our goal is to use our experience and industry knowledge to perform thorough fire investigations objectively and present our findings in a clear and concise manner. We are fully licensed with all relevant California regulations and also have Certified Fire Investigator (CFI) accreditation from the International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI), California Conference of Arson Investigators (CCAI), National Association of Fire Investigators (NAFI), and the Pro Board. When needed, we are also available to work in any location outside California to provide services.

Rappaport Consulting is owned and operated by Robert Rappaport, who has a widely varied history in the field of fire investigation and has taken on many roles to suit clients. In addition to serving extensively in expert witness functions for attorney clients, Rappaport has also been called upon to instruct students in current fire investigation techniques, complete complex fire investigations, and many other tasks. Coming from an education background, Rappaport has an outstanding ability for speaking to audiences and being able to describe even the most complex of cases in a way that can be easily understood.

Our experience puts us in the unique position of having worked both with the public and private sector as well as ongoing involvement in the industry as a Chief Investigator. From this standpoint, we have full knowledge of fire investigations as well as an in-depth understanding of what it takes to be an effective communicator in a legal setting.
