The state of Illinois takes drunk driving seriously. A DUI arrest can lead you down a road of embarrassment and shame in front of your friends and family. It can lead to the loss of your driving privileges which in turn could result in the loss of employment and also can put undue burdens on those around you. King Law Offices will take immediate action in your DUI case to save you and your family from excessive embarrassment and shame.
DUI's are issued when you have been caught driving under the influence of alcohol, sometimes referenced as DWI (driving while intoxicated) or drunk driving. No matter how it is worded, the charges are real. You may be facing time in jail and/or fines that can be several thousand dollars. Court costs, required classes or alcohol abuse treatment can greatly increase the total financial burden.
In Illinois, a DUI arrest is not a walk in the park but rather a serious offense. Contact King Law Offices as soon as you or a family member have been arrested for a DUI offense. The sooner you contact us, the more chance you may have of retaining limited or all driving privileges.
Seeking the best possible outcome
It is not always possible to overcome the charges associated with a DUI. King Law Offices will fight to reduce the penalties and other charges you may be facing such as jail time, excessive fines and even community service.
In some cases, it may be possible to overcome the DUI charges against you. King Law Offices will look for potential defensive strategies and examine every aspect of your case including:
- Admissibility of alcohol test results
- Were the field sobriety tests properly administered?
- Reasons you were pulled over
- Was there reasonable suspicion you were under the influence?
- Did you refuse a breath test and why?
- Review of police report and videos
- And much more
Consequences of a DUI charge while under the legal age of consumption are often more severe then for someone who is the legal drinking age. An underage DUI charge could have an effect on your ability to receive financial aid, housing applications, scholarships and more.
As with all DUI cases, underage DUI offenders face the same fines, jail time, increased insurance rates and community service as those of age. Don't let your future be destroyed over one night of innocent fun. Contact King Law Offices to fight for your future and possibly reduce your sentence.
