Drunk Driving (DWI/DUI) Defense

If you are in school or have a job, driving may be your only option to get there. A DUI defense license reinstatement hardship hearing may be scheduled and having an experienced attorney there will make all the difference. There are new drunk driving laws in Illinois and many ways you can get a DUI. If you have smoked marijuana it can affect your urine test, even if it was smoked as long as two weeks ago. There is what's known as the "hangover DUI" in which you drank too much the night before, then woke up next morning to go home or to work and got pulled over. And if a traffic officer pulls you over for, say, no rear light and there is an odor of alcohol, he or she can do a field sobriety test. In any event, if you have been charged with a DUI your best chances will be with an experienced DUI defense attorney.

All alcohol related charges can lead to license suspension or perhaps suspension with a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP) This permit will allow you to drive to any location at anytime during your suspension with the requirement that you drive a car equipped with a Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID).

Drunk Boating (OUI) Defense
With the Lake County Sheriff's office located right on the Chain of Lakes, it's not too hard for the Lake County Marine Unit to pull you over. In fact, the rules of the road do not apply to the rules of the water. Sheriffs need no probable cause and can stop you for any reason. If you have been charged with an OUI offense, contact us. We have handled these cases before and will do all we can to preserve your driving privileges.

License Reinstatement

If you have had your license suspended, we can help you at your DUI License reinstatement/hardship hearing, setting forth compelling reasons for you to get your license back. We can argue your case for a restricted driving permit (RDP) or full license reinstatement.
