Pilot DUI

If you are a pilot and have been charged with a DUI, then you are at risk of having your pilot license suspended or revoked. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has legal obligations with which they must follow. If you are facing a first time DUI offense, the FAA is most likely not going to take any action of their own. However, subsequent DUI convictions will most likely lead to further consequences by the FAA.

If you have been arrested for a DUI, a Morgantown criminal lawyer can help you with the next steps to take. They will be by your side during court proceedings and will advise you on how to plead. They will also help you report your DUI conviction to the FAA.

The FAA requires that every DUI be reported to them by the pilot themselves. Failure to disclose a DUI has harsher consequences than if you had reported it in the first place. Your Pilot’s license may be suspended or revoked if you fail to disclose a DUI, even for a first time offense. You do not want to make a mistake when reporting to the FAA and risk losing your license unnecessarily. An experienced West Virginia criminal lawyer will help you with the reporting process, they can even submit your report for you. It is important that it is done in a timely manner. You have sixty days from the date of the incident to submit the report.

When filling out your Application for Airman Medical Certificate you must disclose all DUIs, past and present. You are required to report ones even if they have been dismissed and you’ve attended a rehabilitation program. Failure to disclose this information can have negative consequences on you. It is best to have full transparency. Do not try to hide past convictions, even the ones that have been dismissed. There are specific instructions on the application on how to disclose DUIs. Read and follow the directions carefully in order to report it correctly. You can ask your attorney for advice on what or how to disclose certain information when applying for your Airman Medical Certificate. A first time DUI offense will most likely not affect your certificate. Repeat offenses however will be taken seriously by the FAA. Your certificate might be deemed invalid until you have gone through a substance abuse evaluation.

It can be devastating and life altering to lose a professional license.

"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. My mistake to hire him for her but her blessing. I know she didn’t thank you enough so allow me to for her. Very highly recommend Mr. Logue.” A.C.

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 for. Sean and his team worked hard for me. They're the best! Anonymous

After the salesmen told me my gun application "wouldn't be a problem," I was charged with an illegal attempt to posses a firearm. Sean Logue has a good relationship with the DA, but still pushed them to have a trial and I was found not guilty of the felony charge. Sean is a tough and smart lawyer who knows his way around the courtrooms. Anonymous

I am happy to be able to share this information with everyone. Mr. Logue gave attention to our problem immediately and resolved the issue for us quickly. He is an attorney who is respected, not just by us but the court system. I am thankful we found him, and would recommend him to anyone needing a great attorney to represent them. Anonymous

Mr Logue was the one I hired after talking to other attorneys about my case. He was the most knowledgeable and explained everything to me about his plan for me moving forward. He was always available to answer my questions and fought hard and got my charge dismissed!! Don't waste your time looking for anyone else to help you. Mr Logue did an amazing job and very professional! Anonymous
