DUI and Criminal

Matter?

In this video, Elmhurst criminal attorney Kevin O'Flaherty describes why O'Flaherty Law is the best choice for your ciminal matter.

  • We Are Experienced Advocates and Great at What We Do!  If you are facing traffic, criminal, and DUI charges, it is important to have an experienced attorney with the knowledge necessary to take advantage of every option available to you under the law.  At O'Flaherty Law, we have the skills you need to protect you.  In 2015, Kevin O'Flaherty was named one of Suburban Life Magazine's Best Under 40.  In 2016, we received the Avvo Client's Choice Award.  We have an A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau, and we are Lead Counsel rated attorneys.  Many of the clients that we have assisted in the past have been so impressed by our attorneys' work that they have taken the time to leave us glowing reviews.  We have what it takes to get you the best possible resolution. 
  • We Are Affordable!  We are proud of our affordable rates.  We offer low flat fees for many types of cases.  If a flat fee is inappropriate for your case, we promise to do everything in our power to keep your legal fees as low as possible, while still pursuing every avenue under the law to provide you with an effective defense.  ​
  • We Are Accessible and Provide Above-And-Beyond Client Service!  Many attorneys are difficult to reach, are unavailable during off hours, and do a poor job keeping their clients informed throughout the course of their case.  At O'Flaherty Law, we are different.  If you have an emergency, or just need your questions answered, you can call Kevin O'Flaherty's cell phone 24/7: (630)967-4697.  We make it a point to always respond promptly to your calls and e-mails, and to affirmatively notify you and educate you regarding any developments in your case as soon as they happen.

Illinois DUI Law Explained

In this episode of Learn About Law we talk about Illinois DUI laws and what to expect if you're charged with driving under the influence in Illinois #DUI

With the holiday season upon us, holiday parties will most certainly be on everyone’s calendar. While you are enjoying a night out with friends and family you must remember the importance of driving responsibly. Arrests for driving under the influence are extremely prevalent around the holidays. Police are on high alert for drivers who may be driving over the legal limit. If you find yourself arrested for a DUI here are some important factors to consider.

‍If it is your first offense, you can attempt to have the charges dismissed or reduced. If the State is not willing to dismiss or reduce the charges and you should then request court supervision. First time DUI offenders in Illinois are entitled to court supervision. Court supervision will allow you to avoid having your license revoked and having a conviction placed on your record. Court supervision comes with several conditions such as fines, an alcohol evaluation, Victim Impact Panel, and community service. When you complete the requirements of supervision the case will usually be dismissed after approximately twelve months.

If it is your second or more DUI, the situation is much more complicated. First, you are not eligible for court supervision. Also a revocation of your license is guaranteed upon a conviction. There is also the possibility of jail time although many courts will agree to extensive community service in lieu of jail time. Finally, if this is your third DUI it is considered a felony.

In this article, our Elmhurst criminal lawyers explain first offense DUIs. ​If you are arrested for a DUI and it is your first offense, our Elmhurst DUI attorneys will assist you in obtaining a dismissal or reduction of your charges.  This can often be accomplished by negotiating a plea deal with the state.  

If a plea deal is not possible, we will assist you in obtaining court supervision, which will allow you to retain your license and avoid having a conviction on your record.  If you receive court supervisions, you will likely be required to pay a fine, undergo an alcohol evaluation, participate in a Victim Impact Panel, and perform community service.  After your court supervision requirements have been completed, your case will be dismissed, typically after 12 months. ​

In this article, our Elmhurst criminal lawyers explain statutory summary suspension of your driver's license. If you refuse to submit to a breathalyzer or if you submit and have over .08 Blood Alcohol Content, your license will be automatically suspended.  If this is your first DUI and you refuse the breathalyzer, your license will be suspended for one year.  If you submit to the breathalyzer and blow over .08 BAC, your license will be suspended for 6 months.  Either suspension period will automatically begin 45 days after the date of your arrest. Even though the suspension will automatically start 45 days after your arrest, you will be entitled to a hearing.  Your Petition for a Hearing must be filed within 90 days of your arrest, or your right to a hearing will be waived.  The state is required to set your hearing for a date within 30 days of the date you filed your petition.  At your hearing you can challenge whether the officer had probable cause to pull you over, whether a proper arrest was made, whether you received the legally required statutory summary suspension warnings, or whether you actually refused or failed the breathalyzer.  Our experienced Elmhurst DUI attorneys will ensure that no stone is left un-turned in your defense and that you receive the best possible outcome under the law. ​
