Are you a professional or commercial driver who has recently been charged with a DWI or DUI? If so you’re probably exploring your options for hiring a DWI lawyer who specializes in CDL DWI law.

We can provide you with clear advice right away that may be crucial to you maintaining your CDL. Call or fill out the contact form and we’ll get back to you immediately.
Why hire a DWI Lawyer For Your Case?
The DWI laws for CDL drivers in Missouri are particularly tough on commercial drivers. The law doesn’t allow for much wiggle room if you are drinking and driving. In fact, the maximum BAC level for someone with a CDL is just .04 versus the .08 for regular drivers. In addition, if you are actively driving the commercial vehicle, you are prohibited from drinking any alcohol whatsoever. So with tougher laws, it’s imperative for you to seek out sound legal advice for your case. And we sincerely hope you consider Combs Law Group because we believe that we can help you protect your livelihood. Our approach to DWI cases is different than most other local DWI firms. When you hire us you get a firm that is looking for a fight and ready to deliver the results you expect. We aren’t the cheapest criminal defense lawyer in town, but we also don’t expect you to mortgage your house to hire us. What you get with us is a value-based legal counsel that will do everything we can to get you the best outcomes possible.
What can you possibly avoid by hiring a CDL DWI Attorney?
Well, let’s go over the typical penalty structure for a CDL DWI. First, you will lose your CDL through suspension for one year if you are convicted of the DWI. That’s a big deal, since that means you aren’t working for an entire year. Therefore, we put together a plan to avoid that full-year suspension at all costs and/or find ways to circumvent the full year suspension. Second, you could be facing jail time if convicted, which could also be a major life disruption for you. And third, heavy penalties could be imposed that could drain you financially. All three of those implications can create a major disruption to you and to your family. That’s why it’s critical you reach out to us immediately. Upon your arrest and charges, you have 10 days to file a petition with the state to avoid immediate suspension of your license. If you are within that time frame you should act now. Call us and we’ll get the process rolling so that you can continue to provide for your family.
