Wellsburg Pilot DUI Attorney

Are you a pilot facing a DUI case? If so, you may be at risk of driver’s license suspension or revocation. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has specific legal obligations in such situations. While a first DUI offense may not warrant FAA action, multiple convictions can lead to serious consequences.

When arrested for a DUI, it’s crucial to seek assistance from a skilled Wellsburg WV criminal lawyer. They will guide you through the court proceedings, provide advice on how to plead, and explain the procedure for reporting your DUI conviction to the FAA.

FAA regulations require pilots to self-report any DUI incidents. Failure to do so can result in severe penalties, including license suspension or revocation, even for first-time offenses. However, it’s important to ensure accurate reporting to the FAA without risking unnecessary license loss. An experienced Wellsburg WV DUI lawyer can assist with the reporting process, including timely submission. Typically, you have about sixty days from the incident to submit your report.

Additionally, when completing your Application for Airman Medical Certificate, it is essential to disclose all past and present DUI convictions, including dismissed cases and participation in rehabilitation programs. Failure to report such incidents can have detrimental effects on your career. Transparency is key when it comes to DUI cases. Although a first offense may not impact your certificate, repeated offenses are taken seriously by the FAA. Failure to comply with disclosure requirements may invalidate your certificate unless you have undergone a substance abuse evaluation.

To ensure accurate and appropriate reporting on your Airman Medical Certificate, consult your attorney for guidance. Review the instructions carefully to accurately disclose the incidents. Remember, concealing past convictions or dismissed cases is considered a criminal act. Familiarize yourself with the correct method of reporting specific information to protect your career.

Ensuring transparency is crucial when it comes to reporting past convictions, including those that have been dismissed or if you’ve completed a rehabilitation program. Failure to disclose this information could have serious repercussions. It’s highly recommended to follow the specific instructions provided in the application regarding DUI disclosure. Take the time to read and adhere to the directions carefully to ensure accurate reporting.

If you’re uncertain about how to disclose certain information while applying for your Airman Medical Certificate, seeking advice from an attorney is advisable. Keep in mind that a first-time DUI offense is unlikely to impact your certificate; however, repeated offenses may result in invalidation until you’ve completed a substance abuse evaluation.

The loss of a professional license can have significant life-altering consequences. Therefore, it’s essential not to navigate this process without consulting an attorney in order to avoid compromising your rights. If you or someone you know has been arrested, reach out to Mountaineer Criminal Law Group immediately for assistance in preventing the revocation of your driving and professional license. To arrange an initial consultation, please call (304) 900-339.

Client Reviews

I had hired Mr. Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before I had met her, for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr. Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her...


I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped...

Mr. Logue took our son’s cases on very short notice (the first lawyer we hired wasn’t getting anywhere with either of the prosecutors and had actually turned one of the cases over to the court-appointed attorney). We hired Mr. Logue to go to trial if needed, but he worked with both prosecutors and...
