We have also handled cases in all the states colored blue below.
We Care About People
It’s what drives us to meet with each client personally, and it’s what makes us proud to have earned so many favorable courtroom outcomes. Winning as a truck accident lawyer requires hard work. Michael Leizerman and Andy Young both have commercial drivers licenses. We take very few cases so we can spend time with each client so we can tell their story. Our lawyers spend a significant amount of time as safety advocates, helping to make the roads safer.
We Work With Local Attorneys
By pairing with a local truck accident lawyer as co-counsel, we can work on cases across the United States. With years of experience working with top trial consultants, and specialized knowledge about trucking laws, we can not only win truck accident cases, but also maximize the results. Your truck accident case may be larger than you think.
We Are Leaders
Managing partner Michael Leizerman wrote the West Thompson multi-volume legal treatise on truck accident law in 2004 and updates it annually to keep attorneys across the country up to date on trucking law. Rena Leizerman teaches what is believed to be the first law school course on trucking regulations and truck accident litigation. Andy Young speaks frequently as a safety advocate and owns his own tractor-trailer.
