Champaign Underage DUI Lawyer

Illinois is a zero tolerance state for DUI, with some of the toughest underage drinking and driving laws in the country. People under 21 with no DUI history who are pulled over and test positive for alcohol will lose their license for three months. A second offense results in a one-year suspension.

If your blood alcohol concentration exceeds 0.8 percent, you lose your license for six months. If you exceed 0.8 percent and it's not your first offense, the suspension is for two years.

Illinois Underage Drunk Driving Defense Attorney

Being convicted of drinking and driving is one way for a young person to learn a life lesson, but it is a brutal way to learn. A better way is to hire the most experienced underage DUI lawyer you can and rely on experience and knowledge of the law to minimize the pain of the arrest.

DUI Defense for Young People in Champaign and Urbana

My name is Harvey C. Welch. I have been helping families through crises like this for more than 30 years.

I am known in our cities as a lawyer who goes directly at the prosecution's case. I have stopped many cases in their tracks by pointing out problems with police procedure, lack of probable cause or errors in the breath alcohol test.

In the case of young people, I work hard to prevent the law from coming down on them too heavily. We want our sons and daughters to learn important life lessons, but not by ruining their chances to continue their education or to hold down a job.
