Downers Grove DUI Defense Lawyers

Lawyers for Drunk Driving Arrests in DuPage County

Each year, Illinois law enforcement officers conduct thousands of stops in which a driver is arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs. If you are facing charges of drunk driving, your life will soon be changing. A DUI conviction may lead to expensive fines, community service obligations, probation, and in some cases, incarceration. There is also a good chance that your ability to drive will also be affected, even if you are not convicted. At Goostree Law Group, our experienced defense lawyers understand the challenges that may lie ahead for you, and we have the skills to protect your rights and your future.

We have provided many clients facing DUI charges with representation. In one notable case, our client was charged with DUI involving an accident. We were able to reach an agreement with the Prosecutor to rescind the Statutory Summary Suspension of our client's driver's license, and a not guilty plea led to a sentence of court supervision.

Downers Grove DUI Counsel

For more than 15 years, our firm has been serving clients in and around DuPage County with their most difficult legal matters. Our criminal defense team includes a former DuPage County prosecutor, so we know the tactics and techniques that prosecutors often use in pursuit of a conviction in DUI cases. We are equipped to help you seek a favorable outcome no matter how serious the charges against you may be.

It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after an arrest on charges of DUI. Do not answer questions or sign anything until your lawyer is present. Without a lawyer by your side, you run the risk of accidentally providing information to the police or prosecutors that could be used against you later. You could even incriminate yourself without realizing it. If you or a loved one has been arrested, call us immediately.

An attorney can also help you manage the administrative penalties associated with failing or refusing a blood-alcohol content (BAC) test upon your arrest. Under Illinois law, anyone who has been arrested on suspicion of DUI must submit to BAC testing or face the suspension of their driving privileges. Our lawyers will help you understand your options for challenging your suspension and for getting back on the road legally.

Drunk Driving Defense Lawyers in Aurora

At Goostree Law Group, we handle a full range of DUI-related matters including:

  • Misdemeanor DUI charges: First- and second-offense DUI charges are usually misdemeanors unless there are other aggravating factors;
  • Driving under the influence of drugs: DUI charges are not limited to alcohol intoxication. You could also face DUI charges for operating a vehicle while under the influence of marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, and other drugs;
  • DUI that causes an accident in which property is damaged or someone is hurt;
  • Aggravated DUI: A third DUI offense is automatically considered aggravated DUI, which is a felony. Felony charges are also possible for first and second offenses depending on the circumstances of the case; and
  • DUI charges for a driver who is under the legal drinking age: Illinois' Zero Tolerance law means that any trace of alcohol in an underage driver's system could lead to underage DUI charges.

The severity of the charges against you and the possible penalties will depend on the specific details of your case. One of our skilled attorneys will review your case and help you understand your legal options. If there are ways to reduce or eliminate the charges against you, we make sure that you have the information you need to make the best possible decisions about how to proceed.
