Companies in the trucking and transportation industries are faced with many challenges running their business due to the vast number of laws and regulations governing their operations. An incorrect decision today may cost a tremendous amount of time and money in the future. Our Trucking Practice spans all six of our offices and combines a teamwork approach in providing advice prior to important decisions involving litigation and transactional matters.
Our attorneys defend trucking and motor carrier companies in state and federal court and before administrative agencies with respect to all areas of civil litigation. We handle all aspects of a case including investigation, witness preparation, administrative agency proceedings, pre-trial, trial, and appellate work.
A prompt and detailed investigation after an accident is necessary in today's legal environment. Our attorneys are available to immediately respond to an accident situation in order to preserve valuable evidence, conduct interviews of witnesses and law enforcement, and coordinate any additional investigation that may be needed. Our attorneys can promptly retain highly qualified accident reconstructionists and other necessary experts to assist us in investigating the accident scene and vehicles.
Through our extensive experience and industry focus, we provide clients with the most current legal advice. Our attorneys have extensive trial and appellate court experience. The attorneys in our Trucking Practice are members of various organizations that support the trucking industry, including the Trucking Industry Defense Association (TIDA). We work closely with industry professionals, taking full advantage of their scientific and technical expertise for the benefit of our clients. We develop extensive defense strategies which emphasize resolving litigation in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
