Assistance with all CDL violations
Hillel Traub appears in courts throughout Maryland, collecting the experience needed to understand and combat all CDL violations. Below you’ll find the most common CDL violations and how we approach them.
A serious CDL violation like driving under the influence comes with hefty fines and can disqualify you from driving for a year for a first offence or permanently for a second offence. So if you are facing a DUI charge, it’s imperative that you contact a qualified attorney right away.
If your license has been suspended or revoked, it is critical that you follow local laws in restoring it before you begin to drive again. If you have never received a license, you must apply for one before you may drive. We understand that not all situations are alike, which is why we will listen to your reasoning to optimally present your case.
Leaving the scene of an accident
Accidents happen, and it is your responsibility to report properly after one has occurred. If you have been involved in an accident and left the scene prematurely, it is likely that you will face charges. We can help you present your case clearly and effectively to ensure your side of the story is recognized by the court.
Operating a commercial vehicle under the influence of a controlled substance is another serious CDL violation that will have a drastic effect on your ability to continue working. Before accepting any charges – even if you are “technically guilty” – make sure to contact The Law Offices of Hillel Traub, P.A. We are committed to providing truckers with aggressive legal defense because we know how much is at stake.
Though it may be easy to speed on long stretches of open road, going 15 mph over the posted limit will earn you a CDL violation. Simply paying the ticket is an admission of guilt, which affects the points on your license, can cause your insurance rates to go up, and puts your job in jeopardy.
Driving over the daily hours
HOS regulations determine when and how long you can drive your commercial vehicle, and if you go above and beyond those hours, you could face serious penalties. From fines and safety violations to civil or even criminal penalties, you need an attorney who has real practice with the CDL laws to achieve the best possible results.
Hillel Traub once held the esteemed position of Maryland Assistant Attorney General for The MVA, and his intimate knowledge of the Maryland traffic laws and the local court systems is your best chance for a positive outcome. As a professional driver, you need to protect your career by contacting a CDL violations attorney right from the start. If you are convicted of a traffic violation in Baltimore, you legally must notify your employer within 30 days, so don’t risk the loss of your income. Instead, trust former Assistant Attorney General Hillel Traub to fight for you – no matter where you live!
