“David is well spoken and very knowledgeable within the restaurant industry”
“Using David Rutecki as our expert in a trip & fall case against 5 Guys Restaurant turned out to be an excellent decision. David has the depth of experience in the restaurant business -as an owner, as a manager and as someone who has developed operations and training manuals -to recognize the negligent operations and acts in the store setting and give clear and unequivocal opinions about the standard of care and the breach by management and store employees. David did an excellent job providing expert testimony in his deposition which led us to a settlement that was twice what had been offered in mediation.”
