We Will Advocate for You and Defend Your CDL in All Legal Venues
Any commercial driver naturally realizes that a conviction on drunk driving charges is likely to pose serious risks to a commercial driver's license (CDL). In many cases, a DUI conviction and CDL suspension will put a stop to a professional driving career.
Even before a driver accused of DUI is convicted, however, damage may begin simply from being arrested. Stigma and shame among family and friends are not the only problems. In some cases, even being arrested on suspicion of drunk driving can cause you to lose your professional license.
Drennan Law Firm is prepared to plead a compelling case on your behalf before your professional licensing board. This career-specific advocacy is in addition to a lawyer's representation on your behalf at a Division of Motor Vehicles hearing and before a criminal court.
Each venue of justice has its consequences for your future, putting some of your most valuable assets at risk:
- Your commercial driving career
- Your driver's license — your personal driver's license as well as your commercial driver's license (CDL)
- Your clean record: no misdemeanors or felonies
Remember that if you are convicted of DUI while driving your personal vehicle, it can and will affect your CDL as well as your individual driver's license.
You need a South Carolina lawyer well-versed in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations Manual, specifically parts 382, 383, 390-397 United States Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration (NTSHA)
Drennan Law Firm takes on tough DUI cases, including cases involving CDL holders. Time and again, we obtain very favorable outcomes on behalf of commercial drivers.
