At the law firm of Moses and Rooth Attorneys at Law, we realize that, as a commercial driver, you need an impeccable driving record. A conviction for speeding, reckless driving, DUI or other moving violation can lead to:
- The suspension of your commercial driver’s license (CDL)
- The loss of your job and livelihood
- Driver points
- Increased insurance for you and your employer
The risks that commercial drivers face following traffic offenses increase due to the fact that courts are highly concerned about the driving habits of drivers operating vehicles that can exceed 20 tons in weight. Very little “slack” is available for commercial drivers; negotiating for leniency is challenging.
If you have been charged with a traffic offense as a commercial driver and need help in preventing the suspension of your CDL, contact our firm. As former prosecutors and experienced criminal defense attorneys, we have handled numerous CDL suspension cases for truckers across Central Florida.
Handling traffic offenses without legal help is risky for truck drivers. The DMV can get involved. Negotiating for a favorable outcome is difficult when you don’t know your rights and options. And, often, judges don’t even warn of the risks of CDL suspension when they advise truckers on how to plead.
We can investigate your case and provide the aggressive and knowledgeable advocacy you need. For more information, contact our Orlando law office today.
