Transportation law is a broad world: What does it encompass?

Here's a candidate for one of the less glitzy and front-page-laden areas of law in California (something like celebrity divorce might come to mind for some of our readers seeking to conjure up a quick example of legal-based news that routinely scores as a media headline): transportation law.

That particular legal realm is decidedly not showy or likely to feature as tabloid content . As we note on our website at the well established business law firm of Larson & Gaston, LLP, in Pasadena, transportation law-related issues centrally relate to compliance matters involving state and federal regulatory agencies, which is a "complex, arduous, noncore" business universe.

To those who work within it in a legal capacity, that universe is certainly not dull, though. In fact, transportation law is an exceedingly important legal realm, routinely featuring diverse enforcement actors, complex legal issues, challenging company requirements, high potential exposure to liability and additional considerations.

And many of those focal points are writ especially large in California, given the state's comparatively vast transportation industry.

On any given day, a motor carrier, freight forwarder, logistics firm, warehouse company or other industry actor might be facing pronounced scrutiny from any number of agencies, ranging from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to the California Department of Labor.

And the issues confronting them can span a virtual encyclopedia of subject matter as they respond to state and federal dictates regarding things like employment contracts; environmental compliance; broad-based labor-related issues (overtime, discrimination claims, worker classification and many additional concerns); insurance matters; on-the-job safety and countless other challenges.

Our attorneys help diverse clients across California respond timely and appropriately to transportation law issues, noting on our website that we seek in every case "to address [a client's] immediate and long-term business operational needs."

We welcome contacts to the firm and the opportunity to advocate diligently and knowledgeably on behalf of individuals and business entities that need our legal assistance.
