The recent bus crash in California was horrific in nature. Entire families have been forever changed due to the loss of life (13 to date) and massive injuries suffered by the survivors (31 reported).

This will prevent easy access to the public and to others who want to know about a company’s safety rating. This also applies to the information provided to the public through the QCMobile app. FMCSA is…

While confidentiality clauses and common sense prevent me from talking about my clients’ recoveries,  I am pleased to announce I was just selected as a Top 100 Tennessee SuperLawyer for 2014.…
