ASSISTANCE WITH ALL TYPES OF CDL VIOLATIONS IN MARYLAND
Baltimore CDL Attorney 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.
CDL DUI CHARGES
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 offense or permanently for a second offense. Operating a commercial vehicle under the influence of a controlled substance is just as serious of a violation and will drastically affect your ability to continue working. Before accepting any charges – even if you are “technically guilty”.
COMMERCIAL DRIVER’S LICENSE (CDL) SUSPENSION
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.
WHAT IF I LEAVE THE SCENE OF THE ACCIDENT?
Accidents happen, and you are responsible for reporting properly after one has occurred. You will likely face charges if you have been involved in an accident and left the scene prematurely. Our Baltimore trucking lawyers and CDL attorneys can help you present your case clearly and effectively to ensure the court recognizes your side of the story.
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 moving 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. A trusted CDL ticket lawyer can guide you through the process to avoid pitfalls such as this.
HOURS OF SERVICE (HOS) VIOLATIONS
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 a CDL license defense lawyer who has real experience with the current CDL laws to achieve the best possible results.
