TAMPA, Fla. /Florida Newswire/ — Attorney Bernard Walsh of the Bradenton office of Shapiro Goldman Babboni Fernandez & Walsh gave a presentation at the APITLA Interstate Trucking Super Summit. Entitled, “How an Attorney Works a Trucking Case: The A to Z Basics,” the CLE accredited seminar instructed the audience of attorney and law students on the essential steps a plaintiff’s attorney must take when handling a trucking accident case. The presentation outlined the many areas needed for effective representation during trucking accident cases, which are frequently much more challenging and demanding cases when compared with other types of personal injury law.
Held by the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America at the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk Hotel in Tampa, Florida, the event included a host of highly experience trucking litigation plaintiff’s attorneys as guest speakers, and drew attorney’s from across the nation as both participants and attendees.
In addition to speaking at the event and on the behalf of APITLA, Attorney Bernard Walsh invited law students to attend the seminar.
Lauded as a valuable networking and educational resource for plaintiff’s trial attorneys across the United States, APITLA’s stated goal is to use the law to dramatically reduce the number of traffic accidents caused by unsafe trucking companies.
Attorney Bernard Walsh offered this comment about the event: “Speaking at an APITLA conference is always an honor, but his year I was thrilled that so many attorney and students were in attendance. One aspect of legal studies that is often not emphasized enough in the education environment is the high level of networking and number of professional memberships that a practicing attorney should be engaged in.
“Having the students attend the seminar and see for themselves the importance of attending events like the Trucking Summit is excellent real world experience, and helps the students have a better understanding of what the legal profession is like after school.”
