b2ap3_thumbnail_CDL.jpgAre you a truck driver who recently received a traffic ticket? Your CDL license may be in danger. Our firm understands that your CDL is your livelihood, and we will fight to protect it to the extent the law allows.

If you have a CDL license and have gotten a ticket, you need to hire an attorney who understands the full implications about what is at stake. At our firm, our attorney always keeps in mind how your situation differs from that of a driver who does not maintain a CDL license in the following ways:

  • It is important to note that two sets of laws likely apply to your situation. As a CDL license holder, you must worry about your motor vehicle driving privilege and your commercial driving privilege. Losing your motor vehicle licenses typically means you will lose your CDL as well. However, losing a CDL may not mean you will lose your non-commercial license under the Uniform Commercial Driver’s License Act.
  • In addition to the two sets of laws that apply, your employer may also require a certain outcome. For example, it may be possible to have your ticket reduced to a non-moving, equipment violation. This may save both your licenses, however, some employers will not let their drivers plead to such a violation. It is important to think about all the ways the resolution of your CDL ticket will affect various parties.
  • It is also critical for the CDL driver to, where possible, not agree or be sentenced to supervision. Under supervision, a motor vehicle driving privilege will not be affected, however, supervision is considered a conviction as to the CDL, and the CDL privilege may be lost.

An experienced CDL ticket attorney will also keep in mind your unique circumstances. For example, it is common for a CDL driver to get a ticket far from home. Also, our firm understands that having to come back for multiple court dates impacts your ability to drive and earn money. Our firm strives to keep you out of the courtroom as much as possible. Your presence may still be required for important court hearings, however. This often depends on the judge and the court.
