The Law Office of Stuart A. Kanoff & Associates has successfully defended trucking corporations and drivers in all New York Counties. If 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 trucking violations can sideline your business and be accompanied by fines, wasted time and a loss of income. Our firm applies our vast experience with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) to help independent truckers, local transfer and cartage companies, and construction contractors who operate their own heavy vehicles.
We represent trucking companies and individual drivers facing serious charges such as:
- Overweight or oversized load violations, including the multiple axle or consecutive axle overweight violations that can cost you $50,000 to $100,000
- Permit violations, including hazardous materials citations, Highway Use Tax Permits, Special Hauling Permits, Bridge Authority or Thruway Permits, and violations involving escorts, flags, or speed restrictions
- Log book errors concerning driver's hours, vehicle inspections, or maintenance records
- Speeding, reckless driving, erratic lane changes, or other moving violations
*New York State Law requires corporations to be represented by an attorney in all Criminal Court proceedings.
As to the individual driver, The Law Office of Stuart A. Kanoff & Associates is especially sensitive to the requirements of CDL privileges. We have successfully protected numerous driving careers by helping CDL drivers maintain clean driving privileges. Your commercial driver's license is your livelihood. Our firm has a great deal of experience in traffic law and commercial trucking cases. The Law Office of Stuart A. Kanoff & Associates have successfully handled hundreds of cases involving CDL privileges.
We are currently legal counsel to several large transportation corporations located within New York State. We have successfully defended these corporations on thousands of summonses. We have filed hundreds of motions requesting the court to dismiss tickets based on defects found in the ticket, as well as in the supporting depositions. The Judges at the Suffolk County and Nassau County District Courts have granted numerous motions on our clients behalf dismissing thousands of tickets. These dismissals have saved these corporations thousands of dollars in fines.
We have successfully reopened default convictions and default judgments allowing CDL drivers to maintain their way of life and keep their jobs. Additionally, we have vacated default judgments against several corporations saving thousands of dollars in fines.
