Joe Pappalardo is Awarded the John T. Biezup Memorial Service Award at TIDA

During the Annual Meeting of the Trucking Industry Defense Association (TIDA) Joe Pappalardo was given the organization's highest honor as the 2018 recipient of the John T. Biezup Memorial Service Award.  This award was created to honor John Biezup, a charter member of TIDA who died suddenly in 1994.  He was a tireless and innovative lawyer who constantly sought out new ways to protect his clients' interests. It is to honor that spirit of service that TIDA created an award bearing his name. Each year, the TIDA Board of Directors chooses a member of TIDA whom they believe best exemplifies John’s spirit of service, not only to TIDA, but to his or her clients and the trucking industry.  Joe is extremely honored to receive this award.  He is a trial attorney who  has litigated and tried cases in a wide variety of industries, including trucking, automobile, motorcycles, hand and power tools, aviation and automatic pedestrian doors. For some time he has concentrated his practice on trucking, motor coach, aviation and product liability matters including acting as National Counsel for a top-10 trucking company.
