Poughkeepsie Commercial Driver's Licenses Defense Lawyer

If you have a commercial driver's license (CDL) and have been charged with DWI, your first step should be to consult an experienced lawyer. Even if you do not currently use your CDL, it is important to protect it in case you need it in the future. No matter what, do not simply plead guilty. The Law Office of Kelley M. Enderley, PC can help.

Your Career Is In Jeopardy

There is a common misunderstanding surrounding conditional driver's licenses. While it is possible that you plead guilty and get a conditional license, you need to be aware that this license may allow you to drive to and from work only. It does not allow you to drive for work.

Furthermore, it is important to understand that the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) handles regular licenses differently than CDLs. Just because you may be eligible to have your regular driver's license reinstated does not mean that the DMV will automatically reinstate your CDL. Do not count on the DMV deciding in your favor when it comes to CDLs.

The best option is to enlist a Poughkeepsie commercial driver's license defense attorney. We understand that, issues of commercial driver's license preservation aside, truck drivers need to fight these charges. Trucking companies will fire drivers for DWI infractions, and it will be difficult to get another truck-driving job even if your CDL is reinstated. At our law firm, you will find a trial attorney who is willing to go to court to argue your case. We understand how to work with the DMV in these cases, protecting your record and your career.
