No other licensed professionals are hit harder following a DUI conviction than commercial drivers. Their job requires safe operation of a truck, bus or other type of motor vehicle. A drunk driving charge puts their career and a stable financial future at risk. Selecting the right attorney is vital. Choosing an attorney who actually wins cases in court is the best choice in securing a professional future.
- When selecting a DUI defense attorney, ask him or her the following questions:
- How many cases have you won?
- When was the last case you won?
- How many DUI victories have occurred in court?
- When was your last trial?
Milwaukee CDL Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys
With license revocation a requirement of any DUI conviction, commercial drivers are impacted beyond a personal life that may be inconvenienced. With a first DUI conviction, commercial privileges will be disqualified for a year, with no possibility of a commercial occupational license. A conviction for a second or subsequent DUI can result in lifetime disqualification of commercial privileges. A DUI conviction can be a career-ending consequence for many drivers. The stigma of a DUI conviction will scare many potential employers away for years after the fact. With such a life-altering outcome at stake, commercial drivers need a law firm with an unmatched record of success in their corner. Melowski & Singh is that firm.
