Trucking companies, crane companies, semi-trailers, waste haulers, and other freight carriers often face violations for noncompliance with weight limits on city, county, and state roadways. Overweight fines range from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. Many trucking companies reluctantly pay these fines, assuming the expenditure as a normal cost of doing business.

He has a solid understanding of the applicable laws and works with clients to defend their violations, seeking dismissal of the fines or a significant reduction of the fines.
