Practice/Industry Group Overview

GJTBS Trucking and Transportation lawyers represent various motor carriers and their insurers throughout the Gulf South and elsewhere. Our lawyers stay abreast of changes in Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, industry standards and trends, the latest technological breakthroughs in ECM capabilities, and other advances to provide effective counsel to clients when losses occur.

What makes us different?

Immediate response is critical when trucking accidents occur because many involve death or serious injury. Our Major Emergency Response Team (MERT) members are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond when accidents occur and have accident reconstructionists, investigators, engineers and other personnel at their disposal to insure thorough and prompt claim investigation, evaluation and handling.

GJTBS Trucking and Transportation Lawyers are knowledgeable and experienced in handling trucking-related litigation and claims, and are actively involved in the Transportation Lawyers Association, the Defense Research Institute, and state and local trucking and defense organizations and associations.


Trucking accidents require immediate attention. GJTBS Transportation lawyers are knowledgeable in governmental requirements and short deadlines for drug and alcohol test administration, and are experienced in evidence preservation, investigation of the incident, and evaluation of potential exposure. Immediate response is more important in catastrophic accidents involving severe injury or death.

GJTBS has created MERT to provide immediate counsel when incidents occur.  Our Team members each have more than 10 years of experience in investigating and handling trucking and catastrophic claims, and stand ready to respond via telephone or email 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist in claims investigation and handling.
