About me

All of the attorneys who handle trucking accident cases at our firm are licensed commercial drivers. While we do not claim to be professional truck drivers, we do have an appreciation and understanding for trucking that separates us from most attorneys.  While many law firms have a trucking or transporation practice group, representing motor carriers and their drivers is what we do.
