DUI Attorney In Ledyard New London
DUI charges can be incredibly stressful. What may have started as a moment of poor judgement or even a misunderstanding can quickly snowball into an ordeal with much more serious and long-lasting consequences. What’s more, both the legal system and the DMV are incredibly complicated structures with elaborate, difficult to understand mechanisms. This can leave the average person facing a DUI confused, alienated, and scared, not to mention ill-equipped to defend themselves.

While some DUI attorneys only cover passenger vehicle DUI charges, Steven Tomeo and Associates also specialize in commercial DUIs. Commercial DUIs refer to any DUI that occurs in a work-related commercial vehicle. In the State of Connecticut, the laws regarding commercial DUIs are much stricter than those regarding passenger DUIs. Commercial drivers, for instance, have a legal blood alcohol concentration limit of 0.04%, whereas the legal limit for drivers of passenger vehicles is 0.08%. Commercial drivers facing DUI charges face unique challenges, including the possible loss of their CDL license. A commercial driver’s CDL license could be revoked for having a 0.04% BAC in a commercial vehicle, but it might also be revoked for having a 0.08% BAC in any vehicle, for being convicted of a DUI in any vehicle, or even for refusing a BAC test while driving any kind of vehicle. Commercial drivers facing DUI charges need highly specialized, incisive attorneys who know the details of the law inside and out, and who will use that knowledge to build a strong, unassailable case.
With ample specialized knowledge on the subject and years of experience trying this sort of case, Steven Tomeo and Associates fight for commercial drivers and help them keep their licenses and their livelihoods.
