Environmental Exposure Litigation Consulting
In addition to their own case work, Kristina Baehr and Robert McKee now offer litigation consulting services to clients and counsel around the nation in environmental exposure cases.
After recent events--a $48 million verdict for Bob and a CNBC story for Kristina--we have been inundated with calls from injured families around the country. We see a tremendous need for excellent legal assistance for the many thousands of people who have become sick from environmental hazards that should have been avoided. Together, we want to help more families by equipping other counsel to prevail.
While we are not counsel of record in consulting cases, we are committed to helping lawyers understand the legal issues and strategy unique to toxic exposure so that they can succeed for the clients who need them.

Environmental Testing. An effective toxic exposure case begins with accurate testing. We recommend and work with environmental experts to ensure that the appropriate testing is done—and to ensure that the testing links to medical harm.
Medical Testing. We direct clients and doctors to get the right medical testing and treatment to show that the exposure caused medical harm.
Damage Analysis. We assist clients and attorneys to identify and calculate the kinds of damages that can be recovered in these cases. We believe that environmental exposure can cause very real and long lasting harm that should be calculated and compensated accordingly.
Claims Support & Analysis. We share sample complaints and discovery processes to help assess and pursue the kinds of claims you can bring in your particular case. Was the conduct intentional? Did the defendant intentionally conceal the risk of harm? We identify case strategies and decision making for collection of damages.
Discovery Assistance. We share sample requests for production, requests for admissions, and interrogatories designed to get to the root of the issues in an exposure case (and to target the potential insurance exclusions that the defendants will claim to apply).
Expert Selection & Training. We have worked with many of the best experts in the field, and we are continuing to cultivate new experts to testify in state and federal court on critical medical and exposure issues.
Settlement. You may identify our names as litigation consultants in mediation, and we may attend in some cases. McKee has multiple verdicts over $40 million in individual exposure cases and has been litigating these cases for over 20 years. We provide sample verdicts and settlements from around the country to list in mediation reports.
Arbitration or Trial. We brainstorm with counsel as to the best case themes and witness exams. McKee’s experience is particularly valuable here as well, as his most recent jury trial resulted in a $48 million verdict for a single plaintiff. These are real and valuable injuries that need to be presented competently.
We are retained either by the client directly to assist counsel, or by counsel looking for assistance. The consulting fee and structure will depend on the case. We typically charge an up front retainer fee, followed by a success fee.
