When Greg Fylak started his business four years ago, he figured its name ought to convey as directly as possible the fact that he helps law firms and insurance companies locate engineering experts to testify in liability lawsuits.
"University Consulting Engineers" ought to attract some attention, he thought.
To his dismay, he was right.
For the past year and a half, his firm's name has pulled him into an ongoing legal battle with the professional association that regulates engineers and engineering firms in Delaware, one that now seems certain to end up in the state's Superior Court and which Fylak believes may ultimately force him to relocate out of the state.

Since he neither provides engineering services or practices engineering in a strict sense, it mystifies him that the state would demand that his firm be certified in the same way as one that directly employs engineers.
"It seems like a lot of this is driven by a personal vendetta," said Fylak, who has about $25,000 to $30,000 of his savings sunk into the business. "Here's an association trying to put me out of business ... using my own taxpayer money.
