Elgin Commercial Driver's License Violations Attorney

Kane County, Illinois CDL violations lawyer

Experienced Representation for Clients Charged with Failure to Report Violations

Truck drivers and other commercial vehicle operators are held to more stringent standards than other drivers on the road. With hundreds of hours a year of over-the-road driving (much of that time spent out of state) many truckers end up with a CDL violation or two at some point in their career. If you are a commercial driver and you are cited for a traffic violation in another state, Illinois law requires that you report this to the Secretary of State. Failure to report CDL violations can incur stiff penalties; including the loss of your driving privileges.

If you have received a moving violation in another state and failed to report it in a timely fashion, you need qualified legal representation right away. At the Law Offices of Brian J. Mirandola, I help commercial drivers that have found themselves on the wrong side of Illinois law.

I am a Kane County criminal law and traffic violations attorney with 15 years of experience practicing in the Chicagoland area. For seven of those years, I was assistant county prosecutor. I have handled numerous cases as an Elgin, Illinois CDL violations attorney from both sides of the fence, and I know what it takes for commercial vehicle operators to get right with the law and put their careers back on track.

The Secretary of State requires that you report within 30 days any of the following:

  • Out of state traffic violation convictions; and
  • Out of state license suspensions/revocations/cancellations and out of service actions.

You must provide this information to your employer within 30 days as well. Failure to report a CDL violation to the Secretary of State and/or your employer can lead to the loss of your CDL and put your job and livelihood at risk.

I understand how important your commercial driver’s license is to you, and I will do everything I can to help you avoid losing it. Contact my office today for a free consultation. As an experienced Elgin, Illinois CDL violations attorney, I will sit down with you personally to examine your case and determine the best way forward to putting this situation behind you.
