“I’m a member of my client’s team, and it’s my goal to help them become and remain compliant, to the extent that I must take responsibility and be willing to defend their compliance program if necessary. For example, when looking at a driver or carrier file, I always ask myself ‘Can I defend this in court?’ If the answer is no, then the carrier and I need to re-examine the goals we’ve established and revise our strategies to meet them.”
