Being arrested for DUI can happen to anyone and can be traumatic and embarrassing.  Illinois has some of the most stringent DUI laws in the country and the consequences of an arrest can be catastrophic, including severe criminal penalties, loss of driving privileges, the threat to job security and financial hardship including fines, court costs, alcohol treatment, and breath alcohol ignition interlock device costs and increased insurance costs.

Illinois DUI law has become increasingly complex and fraught with danger for the inexperienced attorney.  Therefore, for the person arrested for DUI /DWI, the choice of an experienced DUI Defense attorney in Waukegan is crucially important.  Choose the wrong attorney in such an important matter with such far reaching consequences such as your freedom, ability to drive and financial well-being…  You could pay the price for years to come.

The law in Illinois governing driving while under the influence is extremely complex. A charge of driving while under the influence is generally comprised of 2 separate cases:

1) A summary suspension of your license and driving privileges based on whether you took or refused the breath test, and

2) The criminal charge for DUI which can result in jail, fines and the revocation of driving privileges.

Motions for discovery, subpoenas, pre-trial motions, and requests for driving relief need to be prepared, filed and presented properly before the court.  Having an experienced attorney is essential and will allow you to know exactly which defenses may be available in your case and will guide you so that the legal consequences of your arrest and effect on your life are minimized.  We are experienced not only in the field of DUI defense but also in the area driver’s license consequences for a person arrested for DUI.
