Connell Foley has long been committed to effective and quality representation of transportation companies in connection with nearly every legal challenge, including personal injury, property damage and cargo-related litigation, as well as commercial and regulatory issues. Our work includes emergency response, accident investigation and reconstruction, regulatory, security compliance, customs, logistics, and hazardous material handling. With clients engaged in every mode of transportation, including automobiles, trucking, railroad, maritime and shipping, aviation, and intermodal, our industry knowledge and experience is far-reaching.
We are committed to the most cost-efficient representation of our transportation clients. Our attorneys offer aggressive defense strategies while remaining mindful of clients’ desires and needs for alternative dispute resolution opportunities as appropriate.

Of note, our experience with black box and data recording technologies, accident reconstruction and investigation techniques, and spoliation of evidence issues positions the firm to fully protect our transportation clients’ interests in all aspects of their businesses.
In addition to our extensive litigation and trial experience, our group maintains a network of professionals – including accident reconstructionists, engineers and technicians – to assist in investigations of catastrophic accidents. This allows us to provide clients with the full scope of services, including time-sensitive procedures, that are crucial to a successful defense. Through our membership and participation in USLAW Network, Inc., we are also able to coordinate the legal needs of our clients across the country.
Our lawyers are thought leaders in the field of transportation law, regularly participating in and contributing to the efforts of the Transportation Lawyers Association, the American Trucking Association, the Trucking Law Committee of the Defense Research Institute, and USLAW Network, among other professional associations. This ensures our attorneys always have access to the latest developments affecting our clients, thereby enabling our group to provide clients with comprehensive, up-to-date legal advice on virtually all transportation-related matters.
