Ok, let’s be upfront about this. I am a lawyer who defends CDL drivers in traffic citations. It is what I do for a living. It puts food on the table and a roof over my head. With that in mind, I have had the pleasure of speaking with 874 trillion truckers over the years (a slight exaggerat... Read More

There are a few things in life that are always true no matter the facts or circumstances -- things that nobody can argue or take issue with. For example, nobody can dispute the fact that “fat people are harder to kidnap” (I am fat so I rely on this one way more than I should) or that ... Read More

Ok folks… is the deal. The independent contractor business model is basically extinct in the state of California as of January 1, 2020. On Wednesday September the 18th the Governor of California signed Assembly Bill 5 (“AB5”) into law. For those of you who do not read ran... Read More

You know, the official “title” of this column is “Ask the Attorney.” The title is a tad bid misleading as many of the articles I have written don’t follow that Q & A format. Instead, I may write about current issues in the industry that I think should be discussed... Read More

I go to Truck shows. That probably needs some clarification. What I mean is that I go to A LOT of truck shows. To be honest, I do enjoy my time at the shows and tie interactions I get to have with drivers. With that being said, the Drivers I see at the shows usually have legal questions for me.... Read More
