Addressing The Legal Needs Of Transportation Companies

Transportation companies — not just here in Lafayette, Louisiana, but across the country — must comply with a complicated web of federal, state and local laws, and they must obtain legal representation that understands what these laws mean.

Clients of Pecoraro Law will benefit from working with a firm that some of the country's largest transportation companies — including Class One freight railroad companies, marine vessel and helicopter manufacturers and operating companies put their trust in Pecoraro Law for representation in complex business and litigation matters.

A Special Focus On Representing Freight Railroad Companies

Our firm counts Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway Company and Union Pacific Railroad Company, two of the nation's largest railroad freight companies, among our clients. Transportation companies need an experienced lawyer to aggressively defend their legal rights in litigation dealing with:

  • Train derailments
  • Employee injuries
  • Motor vehicle crossing accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Toxic tort
  • Environmental issues

Our founding attorney, Elena Pecoraro, has a unique understanding of many of the technical aspects of these cases thanks to her engineering background. For companies facing damaging litigation, she can provide the type of knowledge and skills they need to make sure their best interests are defended.

Because of our law firm's additional focus on providing excellent business and commercial law representation, we also represent Union Pacific Railroad Company in dealings with local governments and lawmakers.
