By Scopelitis, Garvin, Light, Hanson & Feary (Scopelitis)
Scopelitis, Garvin, Light, Hanson & Feary, PC, the full-service national transportation law firm based in Indianapolis, announced today its latest expansion, the creation of a new, wholly-owned subsidiary, Scopelitis Transportation Consulting, LLC (STC). STC is a business consulting venture focusing on providing advisory services and implementation programs to companies in the transportation industry.
The Scopelitis Law Firm appointed David J. “Dave” Osiecki, motor carrier industry expert and recent American Trucking Associations Executive Vice President, as President & CEO of STC.
Osiecki will lead STC and will focus its initial service offerings on Electronic Logging Device training and implementation support, Independent Contractor training and advice for motor carriers using or considering using the IC business model, regulatory training on new rules prohibiting driver coercion, and tax savings plans involving equipment sales and purchases. STC will also make available various survey reports and white papers as a means of providing clients greater access to information impacting their daily operation, while also providing STC a market advantage powered by information gathered by STC and its parent firm.
“Dave has a depth of transportation-industry knowledge and experience that many of the Firm’s clients already value,” Greg Feary said in announcing Osiecki’s appointment. Feary is President and Managing Partner of the Scopelitis Law Firm.
“Bringing Dave aboard seemed a natural progression for him in a respected career and is consistent with the Scopelitis Law Firm’s mission to offer a wideranging menu of services across all transportation segments,” Feary said. “STC should open doors to allow more access to an even broader base of industry participants beyond legal solutions to transportation-business problems. STC will take over where legal advice leaves off to provide implementation of solutions.”
Prior to his 20 successful years at ATA, Osiecki spent nearly 10 years in federal service with the Federal Highway Administration’s Office of Motor Carriers, the predecessor organization to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Osiecki earned his B.S. degree at The Pennsylvania State University in University Park, Pennsylvania, and his M.S. degree at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
STC’s office in Washington, DC, will be located at 1850 M Street NW, Suite 280. Osiecki can be reached at 202-728-2850, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
