Why is SPA’s service unique?

Our company is run by motor carrier experts and retains attorneys in each state to not only transmit suit papers but also to assist clients with advice and representation in response to service of suit papers, cargo claims litigation, state and local citations, and other legal matters. Unlike its competitors, it offers its members Registered agents are needed in order to meet federal requirements that regulated parties can be served with suit papers in any state in which they are authorized to operate. In appointing an agent, you are doing more than listing someone’s name who can send you suit papers upon receipt. You are appointing someone you do not know as your agent-in-fact for binding your company with service of process and the entry of default judgments against you unless you respond in a timely manner. That is the reason you need to ensure that your actual resident agent and the blanket provider understand the importance and immediacy of ensuring you are timely served and properly advised of your legal rights.
