Defending CDL DUI Cases

I get a lot of questions about CDL cases and wanted to share some information about them.  Under Pennsylvania DUI law, CDL drivers face some of the harshest penalties out of anyone. (See our post CDL Driver DUI)

If you are a CDL driver you are not only facing jail time and a lengthy license suspension, you entire career is in jeopardy because a DUI conviction will show up on your background checks making it near impossible for you to find meaningful work in your chosen career–driving a commercial truck.  Furthermore, the legal options for CDL are limited.  For example, a DUI-related ARD will not help against the loss (disqualification) of your commercial driver’s license. For some baffling reason, it doesn’t matter if the DUI was in your personal car, on your personal time, and had nothing to do with your commercial driving job, the law is very unforgiving in that.

Unfortunately, many CDL drivers opt for inexperienced lawyers who give them bad advice or convince them that they have no other alternative.  At The McShane Firm, we specialize in Pennsylvania CDL DUI cases and understand the worries and fears of hard working CDL drivers.  We know the law and have the defenses that can produce the best results.
