Commercial Driver DUI Lawyer in Olathe
Understand the Serious Consequences of CDL DUIs
Driving under the influence (DUI), whether it is alcohol or
drugs, is a grave offense that is harshly punished in Kansas. This is especially
true for those who have a commercial drivers' license (CDL). One of
the key penalties resulting from DUI is
license suspension, which prevents an offender from driving a vehicle for a period of time
after their offense. Even for a first offense, a motorist will have their
license suspended from one month to one year. This is a hassle for anyone,
making them dependent on others for transportation, but they are usually
still able to make it to their jobs. A real problem arises, however, when
the offender's job
is to drive.
When a commercial driver is arrested for DUI and their license is suspended,
their livelihood is immediately put in jeopardy. If you are in this situation,
contact Martin & Wallentine, LLC right away to obtain aggressive representation in order to have your charges
dismissed. Our Olathe DUI attorney dedicates a vast majority of his law
practice to DUI case, so you can rest assured that he has the experience

Special Circumstances and Administrative Hearings
In order for a commercial trucker to be arrested for a DUI, they need only
be at a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.04% or greater. Most drivers
are subjected to a limit
twice this amount. The idea is that their vehicle is large and dangerous, even
when they are entirely sober, so extra precautions must be used to deter
driving while drunk.
The moment you are issued a temporary license after a DUI arrest, it is
important that you request an
administrative hearing to argue against your charges and have your license reinstated. These
hearings do not require representation, but a DUI lawyer from our firm
could ensure that you are treated fairly and that you have the highest
chance of having your commercial license reinstated.
