Relevant experiences include Hurricanes Andrew, Allison, Erin, Opel, Ivan, Charley, Katrina, Wilma, Gustav, Ike, Irene, and even “Superstorm” Sandy.
Mr. Slepcevic has, moreover, handled thousands of earthquakes, hail, tornado, wildfire, and storm-related projects as a consultant for restoration companies, public adjusting firms and attorneys both in the United States and Internationally.
Mr. Slepcevic has been routinely retained as a disaster response consultant to oversee the mitigation companies, engineers, certified industrial hygienists, roofing contractors, forensic experts, adjusters and attorneys, including being personally qualified and serving as an expert witness on cases pertaining to disaster planning, disaster response procedures, construction best practices, installation procedures, identifying physical storm, earthquake, and other types of failure analysis, including amongst others, code compliance matters. Mr. Slepcevic also has a significant amount of international experience, including commercial projects in Puerto Rico, Antigua, Canada, France, Costa Rica, and Chile.
