Sophia Bernard represents established motor carriers, brokers, shippers and drivers in all aspects of civil litigation related to general liability, personal injury, cargo claims and regulatory matters, as well as cases involving fatality and bodily injury, from inception through trial. She also represents transportation companies regarding contractual disputes, cargo issues, and unpaid invoices and collections, and advises on regulatory matters and various transportation industry–related issues. Additionally, Sophia effectively represents motor carriers, transportation brokers, shippers, insurers, insured and corporate clients in both state and federal courts, and assists clients in contract drafting and negotiations. 

Sophia understands that trucking and other transportation companies can no longer pay exorbitant settlements or judgments along with rising tolls, skyrocketing fuel costs, and increases in fines and fees. With government oversight and regulations increasing, the cost of doing business and the economy eroding consumer demand, shippers, carriers and their insurers need attorneys committed to staying abreast of legislative, regulatory, technological and other developments that will have an impact on the industry.
