With CDL tickets there are extra hurdles to go through. Not all courts in the State are willing to amend CDL tickets. In some courts an appeal or trial is required to protect your record. If you plea guilty (or pay off your ticket), you only have 30 days to appeal. Tickets that you plea guilty to paid off more than 30 days ago cannot be appealed. Information that appears on your CSA, MVR, or PSP that is inaccurate can be repaired, but documentation must be provided showing there was no conviction. Unfortunately, if you pay a ticket it means you are pleading guilty and the violation will remain on your PSP/CSA no matter what appeals or repair process you or your attorneys try.
Our office has thoroughly researched both State and federal CDL law. We have written briefs on topics such as “Federal Anti-Masking Provisions” as well as on the Arkansas State Law that prohibits amending CDL tickets in certain circumstances. We have successfully convinced some courts to change their polices with regard to CDL violations. We are leaders in this area of the law, and we do our best to remain affordable. When you select an Arkansas attorney to handle your CDL ticket, make sure you get one that knows the law. We take your charges seriously, and we are happy to offer free consultations and honest opinions about what is possible with your case. We have no problem telling someone that their case is a long shot if that is our honest assessment. Our goal is to get paid while we help you protect your license, not to take your money for no reason. When you call you will speak with one of the owners of Bowman & Lewis, an Arkansas criminal defense firm. You can find more information about who you will speak to at Bowman Lewis Criminal Defense (www.lrattorney.com).
