Balestreri Potocki & Holmes is dedicated to the rigorous effort required in the defense of trucking, heavy equipment, cargo, and commercial litigation of transportation claims.  In this industry, companies come under attack in a variety of ways including hiring practices, safety and maintenance records, and litigation tactics.  Balestreri Potocki & Holmes attorneys are well suited to represent the interests of local and long haul trucking companies and delivery services, crane companies, taxi companies, bus companies, shuttle and limousine services, and other commercial vehicle companies.

Our attorneys recognize that a stellar defense often requires and begins with an immediate response for scene investigation, driver interviews, preservation of evidence (electronic and otherwise), consistent document retention and production and early evaluation of options and opportunities.  When issues arise from common carrier or cargo claims, our attorneys are adroit at handling the nuances of California law in areas of heightened liability standards and defenses.  We draw on the skill and expertise required in handling serious bodily injury and risk allocation based on road design or other contributing factors.

The attorneys of Balestreri Potocki & Holmes practice before Federal and California trial and appellate courts and are experienced with binding contractual arbitration, such as that conducted under several protocols published by Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services and the American Arbitration Association.  Our attorneys have extensive negotiation training and experience, and are encouraged to fully engage alternative dispute resolution methods.
