Four Attorneys Licensed to Drive Commercial Trucks
No other law firm has as many lawyers as Leizerman & Young who hold a license to drive commercial trucks. Four of our attorneys hold “Class A” commercial driver licenses (CDLs). We believe it is imperative to step into the shoes of the truck driver. Andy Young even owns a Peterbilt tractor and 45-foot trailer that he enjoys driving on weekends, hauling racecars to and from racetracks in Ohio. We understand the complexities of driving a vehicle whose size and weight is many times that of an ordinary car. This hands-on training and experience is unique among law firms and translates into laser-focused analysis of root causes, excellent case strategy, and rigorous depositions of truck drivers and companies.
Only 1% of all licensed drivers in the United States are licensed to drive a tractor-trailer with a Class A CDL. The fact that four of our attorneys have earned this license gives us a tremendous edge in terms of the technical and practical aspects of truck accidents; equally important, it increases our credibility in court and when working with the trucking industry and regulators on legislative initiatives to improve truck safety laws.
