How can our Elmhurst Criminal Defense Attorneys help you?

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.

Elmhurst Criminal Attorneys Explain First Offense DUIs

In this video, 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. ​

Statutory Summary Suspension Of Your License

In this video, 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. ​
