Business And Commercial Law Services Especially For Transportation Companies

A Motor Carrier Law Attorney with Real-World Experience in the Transportation Industry

I grew up in the trucking industry, and my family is still heavily involved in transportation. My grandfather began his career as a truck driver and owned his own trucking company and trucking brokerage company. My parents own Midwest Moving & Storage Company of Wayne County, which is affiliated with Bekins Van Lines. I serve as legal counsel for numerous trucking companies based in Michigan.

I also serve as the legal counsel and registered lobbyist for the Great Lakes Limousine Association (GLLA) . I have served as an insurance umpire for general insurance disputes and as a court-appointed arbitrator, mediator and receiver.

My transportation and motor carrier law practice covers a range of legal needs for transportation company owners, drivers and operators. I provide dedicated legal services in the areas of business formation, licensing issues and compliance with federal, state and local laws.

It can be helpful to choose a lawyer with an in-depth knowledge of the industry and its legal issues. Call my law firm today at 810-220-4200 to arrange your complimentary half-hour consultation. Or, contact me by email and I will be in touch with you promptly.

I represent new and aspiring business owners during the important first stages of business formation, incorporation and choice of entity. I handle formation of LLCs (limited liability companies), corporations, partnerships, sole proprietorships and more. I prepare service contracts and provide transactional services tailored to my clients’ specific type of operation.

Compliance Assistance With Interstate And Michigan Transportation Laws, Regulation And Licensing

Regulatory compliance in the transportation industry is crucial to the safety of both drivers and those who use its services — and to each company’s profitability. Contact me for assistance with any of the following matters:

  • Licensing guidance
  • General motor carrier regulations, including equipment compliance, load limits and work rules
  • Interstate authority
  • Intrastate authority
  • Detroit bond plates for cabs and limousines
  • Michigan Limousine, Taxi Cab and Transportation Network Company Act issues involving state licensing and insurance coverage requirements for limousine operators

Criminal Defense For Those With Commercial Driver’s Licenses

I handle criminal defense issues for those who hold CDLs, including defense of ordinance and bond plate violations, civil infractions, OWI/OWVI/OUI/DUI defense and CDL reinstatement hearings. Drunk-driving laws are stricter for commercial drivers — the blood alcohol violation thresholds are lower and the penalties are more severe. If you have a CDL and have been charged with drunk driving, even if you were driving your own car at the time you can lose your license for a year. I can help you protect your CDL and your livelihood.

Employment Law Issues In The Transportation Industry

I represent clients with employment law needs, including independent contractor services for trucking companies and labor law issues.

Transportation Law Litigation

I represent clients in state and federal courts as well as in alternative dispute resolution such as mediation and arbitration.
