For some people, the ability to drive is more than a convenience. Commercial drivers are dependent on their driving privileges to make a living. An arrest for DUI could put a commercial driver's license at risk for suspension or revocation. In order to protect your criminal record, as well as your employment, it is important to seek out the representation of an experienced DUI defense attorney.
At the Law Office of Charles B. Smith, we help commercial drivers protect their CDLs and defend their criminal DUI charges. To ensure that the rights of each client are protected, attorney Charles B. Smith personally handles every case our firm accepts and is attentive to the questions and concerns that clients have regarding the process.
San Mateo CDL Violations Attorney
Under the law of implied consent, a person who is driving a vehicle has consented to submit to a chemical test in the event of a DUI arrest. It is possible to have CDLs suspended due to implied consent, which could create a situation where a driver is without a CDL for an entire year, even without a criminal conviction. It may be possible to have a CDL reinstated while the case is pending, but this is not a guarantee.
Mr. Smith will ensure that you are aware of all administrative hearings and deadlines that need to be met to ensure the best chance of a successful outcome. Our firm will pursue every avenue for getting your charge dismissed or reduced, including a thorough investigation of all available evidence and documentation.
