Individual and Commercial DMV Defense


While CDA is proud to represent professional drivers at DMV administrative hearings, we never lose sight of the fact that regular, “everyday drivers” can be equally as devastated by the loss of their driving privilege. California is built on the back of “Joe Citizen,” the regular people of this State who rely heavily upon their privilege to drive and who can be equally as devastated by the loss of their driver license.


Who We Can Help With Individual DMV Defense

When you consider the wide range of non-professional drivers who can be affected by a license suspension, the examples are many. Consider the driver who: Commutes to and from work daily, Once at work, must drive a non-commercial vehicle to complete his job, Lives alone and has no one to rely upon for transportation, Is a college student, far away from home, Is a mother or father responsible for transporting their children to school or events, Is an elderly or ailing driver requiring frequent medical attention.


Commercial DMV Defense

What would happen if your driving privilege was stripped away? Could you lose your job or lose your home? Would people you love suffer from your inability to drive?

These professional drivers typically work for towing companies, service stations, or auto salvage businesses.…Read More About How We Help Tow Truck Drivers…. Limousine One of the least known categories of professional driving is the limousine (limo) driver; sometimes referred to as a “Chauffeur.” Limo drivers navigate the freeways and surface streets of every metropolitan city and suburb. Limo drivers are responsible for delivering actors to the Oscars, rock stars to concerts and our most wealthy citizens to lavish events. Limo drivers also work diligently to ensure honeymoons begin without delay, anniversaries are special, and that high school proms are never forgotten.…Read More About How We Help Limo Drivers…. Sales Professionals California’s economy depends on the ability of businesses, small and large, to sell their products to their customers. Producing the greatest “widget” in the world is pointless if you’re not able to get it into the hands of the consumer.
