A CDL – commercial driver’s license holder is held to a higher standard than a person holding a regular drivers license. The Illinois Secretary of State closely regulates the federal guidelines to govern its commercial drivers. The CDL privileges can be taken away through disqualification of your CDL – Commercial Driver’s License. We will help you for fight for your job and your career if you have been charged with a moving violation or other CDL violation.

If you can’t drive, you cannot earn a living. A traffic ticket on your MVR – motor vehicle record can raise your insurance premiums, and can have an effect on current and future employment. Attorney Terry Wallace has been able to help his clients have tickets dismissed, and in some cases – have tickets changed to a non-moving violation. We can help you keep your record clean.

A CDL driver’s license holder has their license verified every year. Any moving violation can make the difference between being hired, fired, or keeping your current job.
