Wisconsin DUI Defense Attorney - Traffic Offenses - Trucking Violations
Traffic citations can quickly impact your life, leading to hefty fines and potentially limiting your ability to drive. These citations can be instantly compounded when you possess a commercial driver's license (CDL), and can cost you your job and livelihood. When charged with a traffic violation, regardless of its severity, you may be well-served to consult an experienced Sheboygan trucking violations lawyer.
As a former truck driver and CDL driving instructor, I, Roberta A. Heckes, Attorney at Law, understand the fears associated with traffic violations. With the knowledge and experience gained in more than 10 years of practice, I am confident in addressing various traffic violations for truck drivers and private drivers alike, including:
- Log books
- Equipment violations
- Overweight violations
- Improper lane changes
- OWI and DUI
Whether you are concerned about protecting your CDL or regular driving privileges, I have the experience and knowledge to help you seek the most favorable outcomes possible.
Interesting quotes from a JS Online article by Rick Romell:
"The upshot: Drivers with the worst records of hours violations, inspection problems and accidents will find it more difficult if not impossible to keep working.
The safest drivers, on the other hand, will find their services in high demand, potentially pushing up their wages."
Personalized Attention to Your Specific Citation
Whether you wish to meet at a local truck stop or local restaurant to discuss your traffic defense needs, I take the time to understand your charges, the events leading to them and your goals in addressing them.
