The year 2020 is probably the strangest one in our lifetimes. Nationwide quarantines and essential goods shortages have pushed the transportation industry to its limit. At the same time, truckers have come under fire in the media and are at higher health risk because of their essential jobs. In the back half of the year when local governments were struggling to recoup revenue losses, truckers experienced a wave of traffic stops and citations with harsher traffic law enforcement than before. That’s why CDL Legal and its network of attorneys proved more critical than ever to members, keeping them on the road and saving them precious time and money in court battles. This year, CDL Legal saved members $1,706,000 in traffic attorney fees, fines, and other associated costs. That’s up $616K from last year’s total.
Traffic Attorney costs for professional drivers can reach higher than average, especially when a professional driver receives a CDL citation outside of their home state. In some cases, the difference between attorney costs for a CDL driver and the average driver can exceed $1,500. This issue is made even more frustrating for CDL drivers because keeping points off their license is critical in protecting their livelihood. Even with the higher cost and high stakes, legal success is never guaranteed.
Our Success Rate
But CDL Legal does have a 95% success rate for reducing or eliminating points off our CDL drivers’ licenses. We also have the highest CDL citation dismissal rate in the industry at nearly 50%. In most cases, the driver never even has to show up in court. Better out on the road delivering critical supplies and stocks than stuck in a courtroom. Plus, save on CDL attorney costs.
We’re proud of our records and are always trying to improve. The secret to our success is the high standards and restrictive requirements we hold for our CDL Legal attorney network. Our vetting process to bring in and maintain attorneys in our national network is part of an innovative approach to the CDL law process that’s geared to give our drivers the best chance for success.
Back to the issue of costs. Not only does CDL Legal save drivers from paying excessive attorney costs with a high success rate on CDL tickets, but we also maintain a discount network that provides savings to our members every day. Our CDL Legal Member Perks include 300k discounts (and counting) for popular hotels, rental cars, prescription drugs, theme parks, AMC theaters, vacation packages, car repair, vitamins, and much more!
