- James R. Wakefield, lead trial counsel
- Based on its expertise handling similar wage and hour class actions, Cummins & White, LLP successfully avoided class certification in this claim against a petroleum carrier involving several hundred drivers.
- The case was settled in less than one year for a reasonable amount and was paid to class members over 24 months.
- Cummins & White’s conservative approach resulted in considerable savings in both time and legal costs compared with estimates provided by other wage and hour class action specialty firms contacted by the trucking company. (Estimates were for legal fees only and did not include settlement costs.)
