DUI & Traffic Offenses

Successful DUI Defense Strategies

Illinois DUI laws are complex. In any case, there may be one or more potentially successful defense strategies that could lead to a dismissal of the charge or reduction to a nonalcohol driving offense. When representing you, my job will be to find those facts and legal issues that could result in a positive outcome.

These issues include:

  • Did the police have probable cause to stop you?
  • Did the police have reason to believe that you were over the legal limit?
  • Were the field sobriety tests properly conducted?
  • Are the results of the breath, blood or urine tests admissible in court?

I will undertake a comprehensive investigation of these and other issues, working diligently to obtain the best possible outcome for you.

Protecting Your License

A DUI arrest starts two legal proceedings, a criminal charge and a process that could lead to the loss of your driver's license. I will aggressively represent you in both proceedings, working to overcome the charge and helping you keep your driver's license. Get legal help today.

Traffic Offenses

My firm represents people who have received traffic citations for speeding, driving while suspended and other violations. Remember — paying a traffic fine is an admission of guilt. You may lose your license if:

  • You are over 21 and receive more than two moving violations within a year.
  • You are under 21 and receive more than one moving violation within 24 months.

Before you pay a traffic fine, talk to me. I have been successful in getting tickets dismissed or changed to nonmoving violations. As your lawyer, I will work diligently to help you keep your driver's license.
