Gray Beauchamp joined J.S. Held in July of 2021 as part of J.S. Held's acquisition of Kineticorp. Gray is an expert in traffic accident reconstruction and vehicle dynamics. He has investigated and reconstructed hundreds of vehicular accidents involving passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians. He has also reconstructed accidents involving recreational vehicles. Mr. Beauchamp has extensive experience as an expert witness in court and deposition. He has been reconstructing vehicle accidents since 2003.

Mr. Beauchamp has authored numerous peer-reviewed publications, eight of which have been included in the Society of Automotive Engineers’ (SAE) International Journal of Passenger Cars.

Specifically, he has researched vehicle handling during tire disablements, the interpretation of tire mark evidence, and the various phases of rollover accidents. Much of his research has included full-scale vehicle testing. In addition to his role as an author, he is a peer reviewer for technical papers published in the rollover session, the accident reconstruction session, and in the Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Advanced Suspensions session of SAE.

Mr. Beauchamp is an instructor for Reconstruction and Analysis of Rollover Crashes of Light Vehicles, a seminar offered through SAE.
