Defending Kansas City Truckers Against DUI Drivers’ License Suspensions

Having a DUI on their record will negatively affect almost anybody’s life, but this is especially true for truckers and other people who drive for a living. As a professional driver, a conviction for drinking and driving can cost you your commercial driver’s license and your ability to earn an income. This is why having effective criminal defense is so important, if you have a commercial driver’s license and you have been arrested on DUI charges.

For more than 35 years, people in the Kansas City area have turned to Howard L. Lotven, A Professional Corporation for vigorous criminal defense representation. Mr. Lotven strongly believes in the rights of individuals. He will defend your rights and make your experience with the criminal justice system as fair as possible.

The Impact Of DUI Charges Against Kansas City Truck Drivers

Missouri law issues commercial driver’s licenses (CDLs) that allow drivers to operate tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles. However, a conviction for driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher will cause the court to suspend or possibly revoke your CDL.

Take Action To Save Your Job

While things like possible jail time and heavy fines may be the first things on your mind after getting arrested on suspicion of DUI, you also need to protect your ability to support your family. To defend you and your CDL, we will carefully examine the police report evidence for weaknesses to challenge. We are often able to fairly resolve DUI charges out of court, but Mr. Lotven will take your case to trial if that is what it takes to avoid injustice.
