Summary of Expertise: Listed with other top experts in: 
Expert has been involved in the hazardous materials emergency response field for more than 20 years. He brings a rich experience of personally responding to in excess of 1,000 tractor trailer crashes and well in excess of 200 chemical and petroleum tanker crashes within hours of these events. His unmatched experience has allowed him to write scripts for multiple response videos and technical editing of emergency response books on tank truck wrecks involving hazardous materials. Expert has become known as the foremost expert in the response to the MC and DOT specification lines of the 306/406, 307/407 and 312/412 tank trucks in addition to the MC 331, 338 and Iso-Tanks. As the New Jersey State Police lead instructor for Cargo Tank Truck emergency response for many years he has become the main source of information when such incidents occur.

Expert has spoken as a guest speaker at National Tank Truck Carriers annual conferences multiple times in addition to their annual Board of Directors meetings. Additionally; venues such as the American Law Firm Association's (ALFA), American Trucking Association; Vessel Operators Hazardous Materials Association (VOHMA) to name a few have been speaking engagements that Expert has spoken at regarding the liabilities and correct handling of the truck wreck involving hazardous materials, or the ordinary non-hazardous truck wreck.

With Expert's intensive background of actual field experience on multiple truck wrecks, his training in Commercial Vehicle Inspections from the New Jersey State Police and Commercial Motor Vehicle Accident Investigation training allow for a well rounded experience that is well communicated to any jury, judge or board.

To add to the experience aspect of the field, in Expert's earlier years he first became an eighteen wheeler truck driver immediately after the Marine Corp. for three years. After his stint as an owner-operator of an eighteen wheeler he became involved in the management of heavy highway contruction and management where he gained a thorough knowledge of both highway design and highway construction safety practices, policies and regulations.

With the culmination of experience from understanding behind the wheel, to highway design and highway contruction safety, to managing a fleet of tractor trailers, to responding to the leaking tanker, to investigating the wreck, to his commercial vehicle inspection and accident reconstruction training, his ability to powerfully deliver any subject related testimony will be of paramount importance to any trial, arbitration or deposition.

As 4 years as a response manager, then 10 years as the North American Response Manager, then 6 years as President and CEO of one of North America's largest response companies, Expert's experience of handling the broad spectrum of chemicals in virtually every scenario of transportation incidents is unparalleled. In addition, Expert has presided over many incidents of various degrees: a multitude of tanker wrecks and van trailer wrecks; multiple chemical plant explosions and fires; airline disasters; navigable waterway oil spills; railroad incidents; confined space operations and waste transportation and disposal.

Expert has provided audit services of many large invoices for cleanup services for major incidents in an effort to determine equipment that may or may not have been necessary on an incident, additionally; Expert's keen ability to determine fair and reasonable or customary charges is unmatched based on his personal experience.

The van trailer accident or the tanker wrecks are areas of expertise that require knowledge and unimpeachable experience that Expert has proven for over two decades.
