New Jersey joins a number of States in banning attorneys’ participation in Avvo’s programs which require attorneys to pay “marketing fees.” In this blog, Joseph V. Leone and Samantha R. Catanese examine the Joint Opinion issued by New Jersey Supreme Court prohibiting New Jersey attorneys from participating in the Avvo client-linking legal service.
Trucking & Transportation
Our commercial trucking and transportation law attorneys have significant experience in all facets of the transportation industry. We represent numerous trucking companies, including commercial freight owners, private fleet operators, motor carriers and self-insured trucking companies, as well as independent truckers, household good movers, bus companies and the companies’ respective insurance carriers. We aggressively defend these companies in accident litigation, such as personal injury claims or wrongful death claims, property damage, cargo losses, shipping losses and insurance coverage issues. We also provide legal counsel on matters involving federal regulatory compliance, driver error, driver fatigue and log book issues, cargo claims, negligent hire, hazardous materials, logo/placard liability, breach of contract, agency disputes, workers' compensation, labor and employment and truck terminal development. Many of our clients are self-insured or maintain substantial self-insured retentions and, accordingly, we are experienced and sensitive to their special needs.
We represent clients in all phases of litigation in the state and federal courts, and are also available to coordinate the immediate on-site investigation of accidents with expert reconstructionists and investigators.
