Hiring a traffic ticket defense lawyer is of even greater importance for truck drivers or deliverymen. If you have a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) and drive for a living it is vital that you speak with your lawyer before paying ANY traffic ticket! Current Florida law calls for automatic convictions for any CDL driving offense. The court has no choice but to give you a conviction in almost every circumstance. Just paying your traffic ticket will most likely lead to losing your commercial driver license status and possibly your job.
Likewise, if you drive a company sponsored vehicle, paying your ticket can result in your employer no longer allowing you to drive that vehicle which can affect your job. Hiring Blake & Dorsten, P.A. to represent you for your moving violation can potentially: prevent a conviction for the traffic offense on your driving record, save you points on your license, save you money by not having increased car insurance rates, and protect your employment status if you have a CDL.
If you’ve been charged with any traffic offense or moving violation, it is important that you contact an experienced criminal trial attorney immediately. Florida law requires that you request a hearing within 30 days of receiving your traffic ticket. If a hearing is not set within the 30 days, your license may be suspended automatically.
