Commercial DWI in Rochester, NY

Experienced Rochester DWI Attorney

While any DWI charge can carry serious consequences, the stakes are much higher for commercial drivers. Since these drivers are often behind the wheel of 18-wheelers and other massive vehicles, they are held to a higher standard than the driver of your average passenger car. If you are a commercial driver facing DWI charges, it’s important to act quickly to protect your livelihood.

I am Christopher K. Rodeman, a Rochester DWI lawyer with nearly two decades of experience with criminal law and DWI. As a former prosecutor, I have a unique understanding of how the state will build their case against you. More importantly, I know the most effective ways to get results on behalf of my clients.

You need a DWI lawyer who’s ready to fight on your behalf. Call my firm today at (585) 928-4193 to get started.

The Penalties of a Commercial DWI Conviction

Commercial drivers are required to hold a valid commercial driver’s license, or CDL, and typically depend on this to earn a living. For this reason, there is much more at stake in a commercial DWI case when compared with a standard one. The penalties of a first-time conviction include:

  • CDL suspension of at least 1 year
  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Fines up to $1000

As a result of the suspended commercial driver’s license, however, there are typically many more “hidden” consequences of a conviction. Oftentimes, convicted drivers will lose their jobs, and will struggle to make ends meet. Furthermore, the DWI conviction will stay on their driving record, making it harder to get a job once the license is reinstated. It is absolutely crucial to hire a tough Rochester DWI defense attorney who will aggressively fight the charges against you.
