A Lot Is at Stake
If you have a commercial driver's license and you have been arrested for drunk driving, you are in a very vulnerable situation. If you were operating a non-commercial vehicle at the time of your arrest, you could have your license revoked for one year. If you were operating a commercial vehicle at the time of your arrest, you may be facing the permanent revocation of your CDL.
Additionally, if this is your second or subsequent DWI as a commercial driver, you may be facing permanent license revocation. In any case, the loss of your CDL can change your life significantly. Without your CDL, you will not be able to work.
Fighting DWI Charges
At Silver, Forrester & Lesser, P.C., we understand the seriousness of a DWI case involving a commercial driver's license. If you have been arrested for drunk driving, we will leave no stone unturned in your defense case. We will:
- Learn about the prosecution's case — We will make a demand for discovery to learn why the arrest was made, gather all documentation of the arrest and, in general, learn as much about the government's case as possible.
- Highlight the positives — We will learn about your work history and highlight information that will reflect positively on your behavior.
- Cross examine the police — We will ask the police important questions that may reveal cracks in their case.
Did You Take a Field Sobriety Test?
Field sobriety tests include standing on one foot and finger-to-nose touching. The police administer these tests to convince the court that the vehicle driver was impaired. However, these tests do not determine blood alcohol content. Rather, they are coordination tests that require you to perform unnatural acts. They can make a sober person look intoxicated.
