Saxton & Stump’s Trucking and Commercial Transportation attorneys understand that this industry is essential and arguably the backbone for many other major industries. When it comes to legal matters that impact your business, you need a trusted legal advisor who understands your business, industry and strategic goals. We are familiar with the insurance and financial responsibility requirements of transportation and logistics companies and their insurers. Our team represents motor carriers, insurance carriers, manufacturers, shippers, freight forwarders, owner operators, intermodal carriers and transportation brokers on transactions, litigation, regulatory compliance, labor and employment and accident investigations.

We stay up-to-date on the latest developments in the trucking industry and proudly serve as general counsel and board members to the Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association. Our attorneys are dedicated to educating business owners and operators on legal matters and regulatory changes that impact them and provide strategic solutions to help them reach their business goals. Industry and professional associations routinely seek out our attorneys to speak at their events to educate their members on the latest legal trends that affect the trucking industry.
