For Criminal Defense Representation Throughout Suffolk County and Nassau County, Call Attorney Shawn Kassman at 631-232-9479
Truckers and others who hold a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) have much more at stake than ordinary drivers. The livelihood of the CDL holder and his or her family can be adversely affected by DWI charges or major traffic violations. For that reason, it is imperative that if you are a CDL holder, you retain representation from an experienced attorney who understands CDL regulations, DWI and traffic violations, and has a reputation for getting results.
The Law Offices of Shawn R. Kassman in Central Islip will provide you with a quality defense against New York Drunk Driving or DWI charges. We represent truckers and other CDL holders ticketed for moving violations or other serious traffic violations throughout Suffolk County and Nassau County, including Bayshore, Oakdale, Sayville, Riverhead, Port Jefferson, Brentwood, and Holtsville.
Experienced Suffolk County Trucking and CDL Holder Defense Lawyer
A DWI conviction can cost you your career. Truckers and CDL-holders can have their commercial driver’s license revoked for DWI. The law is strict because commercial vehicles are dangerous and because of the high fatality rate of accidents involving commercial vehicles.
Even if you are able to successfully re-apply for your CDL, you will find companies shying away from you because your DWI conviction means much higher insurance premiums.
Likewise, too many points on your license (such as traffic tickets for moving violations) can also cost you your CDL license. You rely on your CDL license to make a living for yourself and your family. Get the legal help you need if you are arrested for a DWI or given a traffic citation for a serious traffic violation.
As a trucker or CDL holder, you worked hard to learn your trade at considerable expense in money and time. Don’t throw away your opportunity.
Corporate Trucking Equipment Violations
The Law Offices of Shawn Kassman represents corporate clients whose drivers receive summonses for equipment violations. When a truck that is owned by a corporation receives an equipment violation summons to appear in court, these tickets are usually issued in the name of the driver of the truck.
When you retain our law firm, our attorneys utilize a legal document called a corporate substitution for transferring the tickets from the employee’s name to the corporation’s name. The individual driver’s name is taken off of the summons and replaced by that of the corporation.
Typically, if repairs are made within 24 hours after receiving a ticket for an equipment violation, the corporation will receive a more favorable plea bargain offer from the district attorney. If your driver received a ticket in New York for an equipment violation, we can help.
