Urbana, IL – Individuals accused of driving under the influence (DUI) or committing other crimes have a right to legal representation to defend themselves against their charges.

A DUI charge follows a person for their entire life, whether through jail time, hefty fines, financial instability, work interruptions, or a ruined reputation. Far too often, drivers are pulled over when they did nothing wrong and face charges they didn’t commit. A DUI lawyer is an invaluable investment who negotiates plea deals/alternative sentences, builds a defense, corroborates/disputes witness testimony, interprets relevant statutes/ordinances, and offers an objective perspective about a case.

When a law enforcement officer pulls a person over for suspected drunk driving, they determine if the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is above 0.05% and that the driver is physically incapable of safely operating the vehicle. If the BAC is above 0.08%, then no matter how impaired the driver may behave, they still face a DUI charge.

Since car crashes are one of the leading causes of death among teens, Illinois supports a zero-tolerance policy regarding underage drivers. However, when a driver is convicted of multiple DUI charges or faces aggravated DUI charges, their crime is classified as a felony, which has steeper consequences than typical misdemeanors.

No matter the accusation, defending a DUI charge is complex and overwhelming, especially if a person is a first-time offender. Working with a Criminal justice attorney protects an individual’s rights and interests, increasing the likelihood of a reduced or dropped charge.
