Pittsburgh DUI Defense Lawyer

Commercial Drivers License & DUI Charges

A Pittsburgh DUI charge is an immediate threat to the livelihood of commercial truckers or those who drive for a living. If you have a commercial driver's license (CDL) and have been arrested for DUI call Blaine Jones Law, LLC to fight for restoration of your driving privileges. As a veteran Pittsburgh DUI defense attorney, Blaine Jones understands the stakes are high. Truck drivers and other commercial drivers rely upon our law firm to immediately and aggressively fight charges of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Our law firm represents clients in and around the Pittsburgh area and has handled thousands of cases.

Commercial drivers face a 12-month license suspension if convicted of DUI – even if they were driving in their personal vehicle at the time of arrest. Your PA CDL can be suspended for one year, even if your personal driver's license is suspended for a shorter period of time. And you will not be eligible for an Occupational Limited License (OLL). Job loss commonly results when an individual that has a commercial driver's license (CDL) is convicted of drunk driving in Pennsylvania.

Pittsburgh DUI Defense for Commercial Drivers (CDL)

For truckers, cab drivers, chauffeurs and others who were on the job at the time of arrest, the blood-alcohol limit is just .04. For school bus drivers the limit is .02. Pittsburgh CDL DUI Attorney Blaine Jones fights for the rights of professional drivers. We understand many of these drivers are from out-of-state and will work with you to handle charges in a manner that best works with your schedule. And we will build an aggressive defense by challenging the charges on all fronts, including:

  • Probable cause for traffic stop and/or arrest.
  • Results of field-sobriety tests.
  • Challenging breathalyzer test results.
  • Independent lab testing of available samples.

With license and livelihood on the line, only a veteran drunk driving defense lawyer should be called to handle a case involving a commercial driver. We handle DUI cases throughout Pittsburgh. Call today.
