In the past, citations for trucking violations could be reduced to non-reportable violations or violations that did not add points to a truckers commercial drivers license (CDL). That is no longer the case. Each violation, including nonmoving violations, is assigned a severity level which will add points to a CDL. Therefore, it is more important than ever for a trucker to contact a lawyer promptly after receiving a citation of any kind, moving or nonmoving, including overweight truck violations.

With nearly 40 years of legal experience I have helped all CDL holders, from commercial vehicle drivers to interstate big rig operators, fight against all types of alleged violations, including:
I can appear on your behalf at any required court appearances and seek a favorable outcome on your behalf. You may not have to personally return to Connecticut for a court appearance. You can be assured that your case will be handled quickly and that I will represent your best interests.
