Roanoke, Virginia Lawyer for CDL Speeding Tickets, Weight, Log & Equipment
We Work Tenaciously in Defending CDL Holders When Their Ability to Drive is At Stake
We greatly appreciate the hard work provided by commercial interstate truck drivers in delivering food, household products, and a wide variety of other items to all of us. Driving is difficult, and it requires compliance with state laws, as well as the federal regulations (the “Interstate Trucking Regulations”) developed under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (“FMCSA”).
If You’ve Been Charged with a Driving or Regulatory Violation, We’re Available to Help – 24/7
As Roanoke, Virginia CDL lawyers, we defend commercial interstate truck drivers from traffic and FMCSA violations, including those involving;
- Speeding and Reckless Driving,
- Non-Compliance with the Hours of Services regulations, including alleged violations concerning mandatory rest breaks,
- Regulations concerning alcohol consumption before or while driving, or for eight hours after an accident (unless an alcohol test is administered first),
- Regulations concerning illegal drug (controlled substance) use, and matters concerning Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing Programs,
- The failure to comply with required alcohol or controlled substances tests and random testing,
- The failure to comply with post-accident testing,

- Weight and safety regulations,
- Charges of intoxicated or impaired driving, and
- Other driving laws or regulations.
Working to Secure the Best Outcome Possible
The conviction of a moving violation or the violation of FMCSA regulations can be severe. In addition to fines and other penalties that may be imposed under state law (such as potential incarnation for drunk driving), FMCSA regulations require that drivers and companies notify FMCSA for nearly all types of moving violations. Depending upon the infraction, drivers can be subject to being placed “out-of-service”, in which their ability to drive will be suspended. In some cases, drivers can permanently lose their ability to drive.
