If you are a CDL holder and you received a DWI in Missouri, you need to act quickly. Drivers holding a CDL (commercial driver license) in Missouri are held to a higher standard for Blood Alcohol Content (BAC), .04 as opposed to .08 for regular drivers. Even if the individual is driving a personal car and not a commercial vehicle, they are still subject to the lower threshold.

If you do not hire an experienced DWI lawyer to handle your case, you may face no less than a 1 year suspension for a first time DWI and lifetime suspension for a second time DWI. The law in Missouri does not allow for SIS (Suspended Imposition of Sentence) in DWI cases for CDL holders. This means if you are convicted of DWI as a CDL holder in Missouri, your charge will always be visible. 

If you have a CDL license and get a DWI in Missouri you should hire a DWI attorney to work on your case. John C. Schleiffarth and JCS Law in St. Louis, Missouri can help you fight your DWI case involving a CDL license.
