Whether you own a commercial trucking firm or drive a commercial truck, you know how important it is to comply with federal regulations and state traffic laws — and to document that you are doing so. A citation for a trucking violation can sideline your business and be accompanied by fines, wasted time and a loss of income.Defending Truckers and Trucking Companies

I have more than 30 years of experience helping drivers and shipping companies address trucking violations of all types. I have represented many commercial drivers charged with DUI and other moving violations. I work to help CDL drivers keep their licenses or have them reinstated.
I am a member of the Traffic Law Section of the Illinois State Bar Association. Our committee is charged with the duty to review and report on all proposed legislation and to plan and teach continuing legal education seminars to other Illinois attorneys. My service on that committee keeps me on top of every change in Illinois law that applies to truckers and commercial shipping.
The majority of my practice is focused on DUI and traffic defense, and I am well-versed in interstate and Illinois commercial trucking regulations.Let Me Handle Your Trucking Violation so You Can Stay on the Road
Typical trucking violations I handle include either traffic violations or regulatory compliance issues. I have represented many CDL holders who have been ticketed for speeding, reckless driving, careless driving, tailgating, unsafe lane change or other moving violations that threatened their licenses.
I also handle cases involving violations of federal trucking regulations. For example:
- Overweight trucks — exceeding your load limits can result in thousands of dollars in fines
- Not weighing in (which is sometimes enforced by municipalities hungry for revenue)
- Operating without an oversize/overweight vehicle permit or overweight consecutive axle issues
- Missing or incomplete records
- Permit violations
- Equipment violations
- Other regulatory violations
All major credit cards accepted. Flat fee for most cases.
