Aggravated DUIs in Chicago

In this video, Chicago DUI attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses under what circumstances a DUI becomes an aggravated DUI

DUI Lawyer Chicago

Read more about the about the Illinois DUI laws from Chicago criminal defense attorneys.

When faced with a DUI, there are important points you need to know. 

  • If you receive a DUI, it's possible the charges can be reduced or dismissed 
  • If the court allows neither, supervision is possible which enables you to keep your licenses along with a conviction off your record

The caveat to this is that you are required to complete everything the court requests in regards to their terms for supervision. This could include alcohol evaluations and classes in addition to fines that can be a condition to receiving court supervision.  If you are granted court supervision, your case will be dismissed once supervision and all court requirements are met, usually in up to 12 months.  

After a second DUI, circumstances become more difficult and you lose any eligibility for court supervision and the revocation of your license is a certainty.  Charges escalate exponentially, if you a repeat offender and it is crucial to know that receiving a third DUI is considered a felony in the state of Illinois.  If you're faced with one or more DUI's it is imperative to have an experienced and skilled attorney to fight for your rights.  Our Chicago DUI attorneys will give your case the attention and detail it vitally needs to put you in the best position to overcome charges against you.
