Drunk Driving (DWI/DUI) Defense

Driving may be your only option to get to school or work. 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 smoked marijuana even as long as two weeks ago, it can affect your urine test. There is what's known as the "hangover DUI" in which you drank too much the night before, then woke up the next morning to go home or to work and got pulled over. And if a traffic officer pulls you over for, say, a burned-out taillight and smells an odor of alcohol, he or she can do a field sobriety test. In any event, if you have been charged with 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 during your suspension if you install a breath alcohol ignition interlock device (BAIID) in your vehicle.

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, authorities need no probable cause and can stop you for any reason on the water. 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.
