Commercial Drivers are Held to a Higher Standard
Rules for drivers with a CDL are set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Commercial drivers are subject to random drug and alcohol testing performed by police or their employers and are considered to be driving while intoxicated when their blood alcohol concentration, or BAC level, is .04 or greater. There is also a no-tolerance policy in regards to drug possession, which could also result in the loss of commercial license.
If you are facing the loss of your license, the loss of future employment doesn't have to be inevitable. We will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your arrest and put together an effective defense on your behalf. As a former assistant district attorney, Tad Nelson understands how prosecutors approach these cases and will use that knowledge to your advantage as he challenges the government's case against you.
