Additional Information

Michael C. Buck, President of MCB Consulting, is a Transportation Expert with over 30 years of experience. He has provided world class Fleet Maintenance Management by developing methodical policies and procedures monitored by performance metrics ensuring regulatory compliance while simultaneously providing leadership with the tools and authority to effectively assist their customers. Subject Matter Expert / Litigation Support - MCB Consulting consistently decreases deposition and trial preparation time and increases the probability of successful judgments. He has assisted attorneys for both plaintiffs and defendants in gaining a greater settlement or mitigating a client’s losses. Litigation Procedure – Once we have exchanged a signed NDA (Non-Disclosure) Agreement, I will make an initial review case and determine if and how the case can be supported. An initial report will be tendered defining these key points. An interrogatory (report) will be developed outlining in explicit detail how the case will be supported for the client (Plaintiff or Defendant). Billing Rate and Expenses – • Initial review of the case is considered the retainer. • Billing rate for consulting, trial, and depositions is $350.00 per hour. • Travel time is billed at $350.00 per hour for only the initial leg of the trip, not for the return. • Travel and hotel expenses are billed at cost. • Meals are not charged to the client. • Mileage will be billed at the current IRS rate per mile. • Invoices are due upon receipt and will be subjected to a late fee after 15 days. During tough economic times, when profit margins are low in the transportation and service sectors, organizations look to slash costs any way possible. The first areas often hit are the high expense categories of maintenance, tires, fuel, and labor. An easy way to cut cost is by deferring maintenance and now because the vehicles perform differently, many times they are involved in an accident. To assist in litigation, MCB Consulting is prepared to accomplish the following: • Evaluate processes in respect to DOT, EPA, OSHA, State, and local regulations including proper documentation • Analyze maintenance processes and pertinent subsequent records for adherence to generally accepted industry practices. • Evaluate and respond to validity of given depositions, trial testimony and exhibits. • Appear in court as a subject matter expert to support your trial proceedings or be deposed on your behalf. • Determine if the incident/accident was caused by improper maintenance practices, part failure, operator error, or failure to adhere to regulatory compliance. Evaluate the competence of the Fleet maintenance and Fleet Safety programs. • Evaluate maintenance processes in respect to manufacturer recommendations. MCB Consulting would like to assist you with your Transportation Litigation.
