Representing Commercial & RideShare drivers in Alabama courts for speeding tickets
Hi, I’m Alabama Defense Attorney Reggie Smith and I will explore all the options available in defending your CDL or RideShare speeding ticket.
With a firm command of the complicated federal and Alabama laws regarding CDL holders, I carefully navigate the Alabama court systems to achieve the best possible results for my commercial driving, Uber and Lyft clients.
I handle your case from beginning to end, it’s never handed off. To keep your commercial driving record clean, you must win your case COMPLETELY.
I have deep roots as a trial lawyer, having taken on insurance companies in many trial cases since 1983. I am committed to defending your commercial drivers license and when it means going to trial I will not hesitate to take that course.
In the preliminary stage of your case you will never appear in court. This is where I work to resolve your case and try and avoid a trial.
This is a huge benefit for out-of-state commercial drivers, who would find it extremely difficult and expensive to return to Alabama for pre-court hearings.
It is ESSENTIAL for you to understand that there is a lot of MISINFORMATION on the internet about the dismissal of Alabama CDL traffic or speeding ticket cases.
Federal regulations adopted by all the states (under threat of highway funding removal) now stipulates that any plea involving payment of court costs is a CONVICTION even if the initial charges are dismissed.
In order to keep your commercial driving record clean, the lawyer you hire must win your case COMPLETELY. Under the new regulations, plea deals where the city or county receives the money for court/ticket costs and the driver receives a ticket dismissal are now regarded as CONVICTIONS. In Alabama just 2 serious convictions at any time in a three year period will result in the loss of your CDL license for 60 days.
Attorney Reggie Smith has been defending 1st, 2nd and 3rd CDL DUI charges across Alabama since 1983. He understands the tremendous importance of defending the advanced criminal charges of Second, Third and Felony driving under the influence charges. He is dedicated to protecting the rights of Alabama commercial drivers accused of DUI and drunk driving related offenses.

Grounds for dismissal.
My goal is to obtain a dismissal of your CDL speeding ticket or DUI charges. I will research all the options available in your case and determine whether there are grounds for dismissal. If I can obtain a dismissal, then your commercial driving record will remain intact.
Keep tickets and criminal charges off your commercial driving record.
If dismissal is not possible, then I will use my previous experience being a CDL Defense Lawyer to negotiate a plea agreement with the prosecutors and attempt to reach a settlement where the violations do not appear on your driving record.
Request a trial.
