Lake County Illinois DUI Lawyer
At the law office of David Weinstein, we are committed to helping people in Lake County, Illinois who have been charged with or convicted of a DUI /DWI regain their driving privileges. Unfortunately, in Illinois people suspected of drunk driving are treated as if they are guilty until they are proven innocent. Therefore, it is imperative to have a drunk driving defense lawyer who is familiar with Illinois DUI / DWI laws.
If you have been charged with a DUI it is imperative to contact the Secretary of State within ten days of your arrest and request a hearing, or your driver’s license will be automatically suspended for a minimum of forty five days. This is only the beginning of the penalty for a first time drunk driving convictions and the consequences escalate quickly for multiple convictions.
We are experienced drunk driving lawyers with the skill and knowledge to help our clients get their driving privileges reinstated, acquire work permits, and challenge the results of Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) tests, field sobriety tests, and breathalyzer results in court.
We also help people who have had their Driver’s licenses revoked due to multiple drunk driving charges. We attend Secretary of State Reinstatement Hearings where we work to obtain a Restricted Drivers Permit (RDP) for our clients. Once that has happened, we can work with them to have their driving privileges reinstated. Full reinstatement can take a year or more.
Our drunk driving attorneys represent clients throughout Lake County, Illinois including the cities of Waukegan, Grayslake, Gurnee, Deerfield, Wauconda, Libertyville, and Round Lake.
If you have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, please contact Weinstein & Douglas. We are committed to aggressively protecting the rights and interests of our clients so they can move forward with their lives.
