Violations under a Commercial Driver’s License
Losing your commercial driver’s license (CDL) could mean losing your source of income, and that can have potentially devastating consequences for you and your family. At NNK, we understand the importance of preserving your driving record if you are a commercial driver not only for your current job, but also for future employment opportunities.
At NNK, we fight aggressively for our clients and help post bond to avoid arrest, help keep traffic violations off their permanent driving record, help clear tickets and fines and if necessary, help represent our clients at trial. The laws governing commercial driver’s licenses are different to those governing regular driver’s licenses, so it is important to consult with an experienced attorney who will give you the best advice depending on your particular situation.
Different cities have different penalties for traffic violations. In Dallas, you have 21 days after receiving a traffic citation to either: 1) pay off your ticket or 2) appear in court to contest the citation. If you fail to do both of these, a warrant will be issued for your arrest and your corresponding monetary fines will also increase. The amount of time to pay the fine or appear in court varies by jurisdictions within jurisdiction. A traffic citation for speeding, violating traffic laws, driving without insurance, driving without a valid driver’s license or a suspended license and many other types of driving violations can result in a traffic warrant.
Once a warrant has been issued for your arrest, you must post a cash bond in the amount of the fine in order to get rid of the warrant. Another option is to hire an experienced attorney who will help you lower the amount owed on these tickets.
Not dealing with your speeding tickets can ultimately result in you losing your license. Speeding tickets in Texas usually result in a fine, and sometimes-higher insurance rates. The fine for speeding generally corresponds with how much higher you are going over the stated speed limited. Texas law has a point system. If you have more than 7 points on your record in a given year, you risk losing your diver’s license. At NNK, we can help keep your driving record clean by fighting to keep speeding tickets off your driving record, especially if you are a commercial driver.

Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a very serious offense and can have many legal repercussions on your driving record and your reputation. At NNK, we will fight aggressively to clear your record if you have been falsely accused of driving while intoxicated. We understand that even breathalyzers are not foolproof, so we will challenge all the police officer’s findings to make sure you are not being accused of anything falsely.
Driving While License Suspended (DWLS)
Driving with a suspended license is a serious offense and could lead to potential jail time. In order to be convicted of driving with a suspended license, the state has to show that the driver was aware of the fact that his or her license was suspended. If you have been charged with DWLS, we can help dismiss or at least reduce the consequences by showing you did not have knowledge of the suspended license. If you are facing these charges, you should not waste any time, contact an attorney at NNK immediately.
