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.
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.
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.

In this article, our Naperville criminal defense lawyers explain what to do if you are pulled over for a DUI in Illinois.
If you refuse to submit to a breathalyzer, or if you submit and have over .08 Blood Alcohol Content (BAC), your license will be suspended. If you have had less than two DUIs in a five year period and your BAC is over .08 you will receive a 6 month suspension. If you refuse to submit to the test your license will be suspended for one year.
Although your license will be suspended for a longer period of time if you refuse to submit to the test, a positive BAC test is irrefutable evidence of guilt, which will make your case much more difficult to defend. Suspension periods automatically begin 45 days after your arrest.
