CDL License Suspension
If you drive for a living, and are found guilty of either a DUI or certain traffic offenses, your job and career will be in very real jeopardy. Most people do not realize that a simple traffic offense may put their Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) at risk. They are equally unaware of the fact that a CDL Suspension may result from an offense regardless of whether on the job or not. A CDL Suspension is a virtual death sentence to the career and economic stability of any person who drives for a living.
A CDL suspension can:
- Cause you to lose your job
- Prevent you from collecting unemployment
- Cause you to incur heavy fines
- Make your insurance premiums outrageously expensive
- Put unmanageable personal and financial stress upon you and your family
The effect a seemingly minor traffic offense can have upon a person’s CDL can be catastrophic. If you have a CDL and have been accused of a traffic offense or DUI, you need to contact an attorney immediately. The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. have successfully defended and protected commercial drivers against potential CDL Suspensions; saving jobs, careers, and thereby homes and life savings in the process. We recognize that for a commercial driver, literally every aspect of this person’s financial life is at stake when threatened with a CDL suspension. You need an attorney who will fight to protect your livelihood – because that is what is at stake.
Remember, just because you were not on the job at the time of the ticket or arrest does not mean your CDL is safe! A DUI, for example, even if it occurs off the clock in your personal vehicle, can lead to a one year CDL Suspension. In the state of Pennsylvania, a two time DUI offender recently lost his CDL for life. Any ticket, no matter how minor, may have dire consequences upon a CDL.
But you do have options; you have rights. Let The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. protect your rights, your job, and your family. Call 215-437-3058 for a free consultation today.
