Expert Witness Testimony and Trial Testimony
Mr. Rubino provides expert opinions in a manner that is unique from other experts in the industry. First of all, unlike some other experts in his field who work 90% of the time for the plaintiff, Mr. Rubino has maintained a 50/50 split between plaintiff and defense cases. Secondly, Mr. Rubino's CV contains 150 references, including 100 from defense and plaintiff attorneys he has worked with. New clients are invited to call any of those attorneys at random. To learn what some of those references have said about Mr. Rubino please see the Testimonials page on this website.
Mr. Rubino uses an Eight Step Expert Witness Methodology in which he analyzes the facts of the case as they relate to national industry standards. In addition, he refers to national industry organizations which would be considered representative of commonly-accepted standards in their particular sub-sector. He then considers state and local regulations that apply, as well as contractual obligations that are germane to the case. He also refers to peer-reviewed support material that has been written on the issues involved.
This methodology allows him to opine on standard of care, duty of care, company management policies, driver behavior, passenger care, and exactly what a transportation is required to do or not do, especially in cases involving personal injury. Mr. Rubino also can provide expert opinions on regulatory issues, and can analyze company business plans to determine the probability of a proposed company succeeding or failing, and whether or not the company will actually serve its targeted population.
