Fort Wayne CDL Defense Attorney

Fort Wayne CDL Defense Attorney

If you drive a truck for a living, then your commercial driver’s license is your livelihood. Speeding tickets and other violations can cost you your job. The Bellinger Law Office has represented hundreds of Indiana truck drivers facing license suspensions or other red marks on their driving record to ensure that their rights are protected and they can continue to earn a living.

How a Fort Wayne CDL Defense Attorney Can Help

When most folks get a speeding ticket, they simply mail in the fine. But what they may not know is that they are pleading guilty to a crime. It may not matter if you only drive for recreational purposes or to get to and from work. It matters a lot when your ability to earn a living depends on a valid license.

Both federal and state laws prohibit “masking” moving violations with non-point violations for commercial truck drivers. While in some cases, you may be able to legitimately reduce the offense, the prosecutor is prohibited from offering a plea bargain that could reduce the charge to a non-point infraction.

The Bellinger Law Office has helped several Indiana truck drivers, as well as out-of-state truck drivers, defend their licenses in Indiana.

Types of Cases We Handle

We handle all types of CDL cases including:

  • Alcohol violations
  • Driving in the third lane violations
  • Equipment violations
  • Exceeding of local weight restrictions
  • Hours of service violations
  • Logbook violations
  • No registration violations
  • Seatbelt violations
  • Speeding, tailgating, or lane change violations
  • Any other type of commercial license violation

While the BAC required to charge a commuter is .08, commercial truck drivers are required to operate their vehicle with a BAC of .04 or less. These types of violations tend to result in immediate suspensions. A second DUI offense will result in a mandatory lifetime suspension of your CDL.

License Suspensions

CDL traffic citations will stay on your record for years. Multiple tickets over a period of time can accumulate points and result in a suspension. Depending on the nature of the infraction, the relative seriousness of the infraction, and other infractions on your license, you could be facing a CDL suspension for even a seemingly minor citation. 

How a Fort Wayne CDL Attorney Can Help 

The Bellinger Law Office has represented hundreds of local and out-of-state drivers who have been ticketed in Indiana. We can help you fight the ticket, get the case dismissed, or potentially reduce the charges against you from a major violation to a serious violation, reducing the number of points on your license. At The Bellinger Law Office, our goal is to keep you on the road and ensure you can still support yourself and your family.
