We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

Learn how we service your area through our Remote Location Approach.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

About DUI Attorney Palatine:

Understanding DUI Consequences

A DUI (Driving Under the Influence) charge is not just a minor traffic violation—it's a serious criminal offense that can have long-lasting consequences. Illinois law is particularly strict, with penalties that can severely impact your daily life and future.

Potential Consequences of a DUI Conviction Include:

  • Loss of driving privileges
  • Substantial fines and court costs
  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device (Breathalyzer)
  • Jail or prison time
  • Significant impact on job opportunities and family life

Given these stakes, securing legal representation from a knowledgeable DUI attorney is crucial.

The Role of a DUI Attorney

A DUI attorney specializes in the defense of individuals charged with driving under the influence. Our role extends beyond mere representation; we provide a robust defense aimed at reducing or dismissing charges based on the specifics of your case.

How We Defend Your Case:

  • Thorough Investigation: We review police reports, squad car videos, and the circumstances surrounding your arrest to identify any procedural errors or rights violations.
  • Challenge Evidence: We scrutinize the testing procedures and the accuracy of the Breathalyzer or other testing equipment used.
  • Legal Advocacy: We represent you in court, presenting a strong defense and negotiating with prosecutors to achieve the best possible outcome.

Anecdotal Story: A DUI Defense Success

Consider the case of Michael, a resident of Palatine who faced a DUI charge after a routine traffic stop escalated due to a failed sobriety test. Michael was at risk of losing his license and facing jail time, which would have a devastating impact on his job and family life.

Upon hiring our firm, our team immediately got to work reviewing the traffic stop's legality and the subsequent procedures used by the police. It was discovered that the Breathalyzer used during Michael's arrest was improperly calibrated, calling into question the accuracy of the test results. Armed with this information, we were able to negotiate with the prosecution to reduce the charges significantly, allowing Michael to retain his license and avoid jail time.
