Defending Against The Consequences Of A Commercial DUI

Because of the increased responsibility involved in operating a commercial vehicle, the standards for driving are much stricter and the consequences for commercial DUIs are harsh.

In Alabama, CDL drivers operating a commercial motor vehicle with a .04 BAC or greater will face charges. If convicted, you could face a one-year license suspension. You could also have trouble obtaining future employment.

Our skilled lawyers will take the action needed to preserve your privilege to drive, and to protect your criminal record and future.

Increased Penalties For Subsequent DUIs

If you are convicted of a fourth DUI within a five-year period, it is classified as a felony DUI. When charged with a felony DUI, you face increased penalties and consequences.

As a Class C felony, this type of DUI can result in a minimum sentence of one year and one day in prison, driver’s license suspension and a steep fine. If you are facing a felony DUI, we will analyze how the officer conducted the field sobriety test and the traffic stop.
