Work with a trusted transportation attorney in Lake County today.

If you own a company in the transportation industry, you need a lawyer who will help you with the significant legal and regulatory issues that may keep your business from moving forward. Attorney Marc Blumenthal represents businesses, carriers and shippers with all of the challenges they may face, providing sound legal guidance resulting in positive outcomes.

Mr. Blumenthal has spent years working with transportation companies, dealing comprehensively with the following issues:

Freight Loss & Cargo Damage Claims and Defense:
During the freight shipping and transporting process, it is inevitable that some damage will occur. When you’re dealing with this issue, there are some very specific and complex rules that govern how to handle it.

Mr. Blumenthal will guide you through the process and provide you with your best options. Don’t let a common issue like damaged freight come between you and the success of your company.

Overweight, Oversize and Permit Violations:
Local, state and federal governments have strict limits on the size and weight of trucks driving on roads and highways. These laws are in place to protect roads and bridges from enduring structural damage due to an excess amount of pressure.

Let Mr. Blumenthal help you discover the correct processes to allow oversized and overweight shipments to be lawfully transported through public means.

Transportation and Logistics Contracts:
In 1996, the old regulatory system of transportation was officially removed. As a result, transportation and logistics contracts have replaced the regulatory principles of the past. In order to protect your company, you need to draft a contract that will fill the void left by this lack of regulation. Mr. Blumenthal can help you negotiate terms covering freight charges or cases involving accident or loss of freight.

Regulatory Registrations:
Although the historical regulatory structure was eliminated in 1996, federal and state governments, including those in Illinois, still require registration to transport freight for commerce purposes. To make sure you comply with all registrations, contact Marc J. Blumenthal today.

Whether you’re a shipper, carrier or owner-operator, we will work with you through the most complicated business transactions.

Mr. Blumenthal works with transportation companies in Lake County, Cook County, McHenry County, Buffalo Grove, Waukegan, Bensenville, Elk Grove Village, Hillside, Willow Springs, Rolling Meadows and the surrounding areas.
