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 and skill to fight for you.

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.
