Illinois DUI laws are complex and your case should be handled by an experienced Joliet or Will County DUI lawyer

We appear on a regular basis in the courtrooms here in Will County where the cases are tried. Our experience can help you obtain a favorable outcome to your case.

Illinois law makes it a crime for a driver to operate a vehicle while impaired by the effects of alcohol or drugs. If your blood alcohol is above .08 then you are driving under the influence of alcohol. If you are under 21 and are driving with any alcohol in your system, it is possible for you to be charged with an Illinois DUI. Additionally, a failure to take breathalyzer test can result in suspension of your driving privileges through the Secretary of State’s office.

Penalties for being convicted of driving under the influence in Illinois include fines, alcohol classes, community service, forfeiture of your vehicle and possibly prison. A sentence is based upon your prior record, whether there were injuries to others, level of intoxication and other factors.
