DUI defense, other protections for commercial license charges

There are numerous reasons why a commercial driver's license can be suspended and the driver can be disqualified from driving commercially. When there is a charge that leads to this potential punishment, it can be vital to have legal assistance for a DUI defense or for whatever the issue was that led to the possible sanctions.
