Transportation Law


Our firm is highly specialized in the areas of State and Federal regulation of buses, vans and limousines. We represent a large number of transportation companies that are located in New Jersey and New York, and many others that are located throughout the United States. Although we are limited to representing transportation companies in State specific or intrastate operations and regulation in New Jersey and New York, we are able to represent transportation companies anywhere in the United States with regard to Federal Regulation.

We can obtain Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (formerly ICC) and NJDOT and NYSDOT Certificates for charter, regular route, contract and casino operations, obtain USDOT Registrations, prepare and file tariffs and equipment leases, and handle all of your regulatory matters, including protests against applications for new service that would compete unfairly with an existing operation.

Our firm has as much practical experience as legal experience with regard to the operation of bus companies. Jerry Casser was involved in the operation of a large bus company with charter, transit and sightseeing operations through his family’s business interests before he began practicing law and as a result, has developed a substantial understanding of the day to day operations of a bus company which he has put to effective use in his law practice.

In the course of our law practice, we have represented large, mid-size and small bus operators, from a company the size of Coach USA with more than 9,000 buses and operations throughout the country to small start up bus companies. We represent charter and transit operators, commuter van operators, school bus companies, limousine operators and private companies that offer shuttle operations for their employees. We have obtained approval for bus routes for our clients throughout New Jersey and New York, and for interstate bus routes throughout the United States. We have handled transportation issues for bus companies in Maine, Massachusetts, Florida, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and California.

Many of our out-of-state clients utilize our firm’s legal abilities for matters that arise when their transportation operations take them into New Jersey. The issues could involve bus accidents (we investigate and assist in the recovery of property damage), NJ tax issues, Atlantic City Casino matters, Municipal Court appearances for traffic violations, and leases for terminal and office locations in New Jersey, etc.

Our firm is a member of the United Motorcoach Association and the American Bus Association as well as the Transportation Lawyers Association and Association of Transportation Law Professionals. Jerry Casser serves as Legal Counsel to the Greater New Jersey Motorcoach Association, and he often speaks on transportation matters before bus associations and other transportation organizations.
