Some of the best trucking lawyers in the country recently got together in Atlanta and spent a week teaching other lawyers the tricks and traps of handling a truck, bus or other commercial motor vehicle case. I have not been posting for the last month as my time has been consumed by getting this program together. Robert Collins, from Texas, was the co-moderator and as much time as I put into this program, he put in more. All the TEACHERS were pleased with how much they learned, the students were ecstatic!

The AAJ Advanced Trucking Litigation College is exactly the type of program you want a lawyer handling your trucking case to attend. Hiring a competent lawyer to handle your case is the most critical thing you can do to get a good result in your case. The facts won’t change, but gathering those facts, and making sure they are presented to a judge or jury, is critical. Not everyone knows which rocks to look under at a trucking company headquarters.

Before you hire a lawyer for any type of case make sure they are educated on the subject and not a "one size fits all" lawyer. If you have a good case you can hire the best lawyer, from in state or out of state, to handle it and it won’t cost you any more money. If the lawyer you want to hire can’t take your case he or she can frequently get you to someone in your area that focus’ on the specific area involved in your case.

My firm has referral lawyers for trucking cases in every state. In addition to the cases I have handled in Tennessee and Georgia, I recently resolved a case in Nebraska and just finished consulting in trucking cases in California and New York city. If my firm can’t get involved in a case (we don’t take every case), we always try to get the case to a lawyer with trucking experience in the appropriate state.
