Joliet DUI Lawyers/DWI Defense Attorneys
Shorewood Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys
Drunk driving offenses are taken very seriously in Illinois. Even a conviction for a first offense can result in serious penalties, including fines, jail time, loss of your license and many others. For many people, their first drunk driving arrest is their first encounter with the law, and it can be a very intimidating experience. Most people don’t know their rights in DUI cases. Having an experienced drunk driving defense lawyer on your side can help to ensure they are protected.
At the Mitchell Legal Solutions, our Joliet DUI/DWI defense attorneys have helped countless clients facing a drinking and driving charge. We fight aggressively to beat the charges against you and to resolve your case in a way that leaves your rights and freedom intact. You can count on us to pursue every legal option available in an effort to reach a positive result.
Holding Law Enforcement Accountable
The law is very specific about what the police are allowed to do when investigating a drunk driving offense. If they overstep their authority, it may constitute a violation of your rights. When you hire our firm, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the traffic stop and the arrest to gain a full understanding of the prosecution’s case. If we find that your rights were violated in any way, we will take immediate action to have the charges dismissed.
We often succeed in challenging drunk driving arrests based on:
- Lack of probable cause for the initial stop
- Problems with the way in which field sobriety tests were administered or improperly calibrated Breathalyzer machines
- Officer not properly trained to administer the breath test
- Miranda rights issues
We also represent clients at Secretary of State hearings regarding your license suspension. License suspension is a DUI/DWI penalty that has immediate impact on you and your family. We work diligently to preserve your driving privileges and minimize the effects of the drunk driving charge on your daily life.
