Atlanta Trial Attorney Geoff Pope Attends National Trucking Conference in Las Vegas
Pope & Howard, P.C. Co-Founder Confers with Trucking Law Experts From Across the U.S.
ATLANTA (December 4, 2013) – Trial lawyer Geoff Pope, co-founder of Atlanta’s Pope & Howard, P.C. Law Firm, recently attended a national trucking conference held in Las Vegas. The conference, titled “How to Win Trucking Cases 2013,” was hosted by the 360 Advocacy Institute, an organization dedicated to providing superior continuing legal education for the plaintiff bar.
Present at the Las Vegas trucking conference was an experienced faculty of 16 experts and trial lawyers who lectured on elements crucial to the construction of a winning trucking case.
“These conferences provide attorneys with a unique opportunity to meet with trucking personal injury lawyers from all over the nation to share valuable knowledge and experiences,” Pope said.
Some of the featured presentations included “Lane Change Accidents and Side Underride,” “Unique Accident Reconstruction Issues in Trucking Cases,” and “Understanding the Transportation Cycle, How Truck Companies Work, and The Dispatch Paper Trail.”
The 360 Advocacy Institute was founded by members of the personal injury plaintiff bar who felt that greater collaboration was needed to counter the increasing pressures of the insurance industry and the changing attitudes of the jury pool. Today, the Institute continues to offer confidential conferences, seminars, and workshops for attorneys looking to enhance every aspect of their personal injury practices.
“A successful trucking case requires a comprehensive understanding of not only the laws and regulations surrounding tractor trailer companies, but also the science and engineering behind the vehicles,” Pope explained. “The best plaintiff trucking lawyers are always searching for continuing education opportunities.”
Pope, who served as Georgia Trial Lawyers Association (GTLA) President in 2011, has been a member of the Georgia Bar since 1993. Since partnering with Marc Howard to form Pope & Howard, P.C. in 2005, he has received both local and national acclaim. His full profile is available online.
