3 reasons to get an attorney for your DUI case

Many people think it is not worth the cost to hire a lawyer to defend them from DUI charges. They tend to mistakenly suppose that these are fairly minor cases, especially if it is the first time they have been charged. It also is often commonly believed that, if the breath test or blood test shows an illegally elevated blood alcohol level, there is no point in fighting the charges anyway.

The cost of driver's license revocation in Illinois

Driving while under the influence in Illinois can result in some very serious consequences. DUI changes are not limited to alcohol, but also marijuana, hard drugs and prescription drugs. The state laws regarding DUIs are set up to combat driving while impaired, regardless of the intoxicant. Additionally, if you are charged with a DUI, you fail a chemical test, or you refuse to take a chemical test, your license will be revoked for a period of time. The temporary loss of a license may seem like a high cost, but getting it back may cost you even more.

Penalties for DUI in Illinois

Illinois drivers who are arrested for driving while impaired may face a variety of penalties based on the facts surrounding their DUI charge. For instance, the severity of penalties they may face may depend on their age, whether there were minors in the car or whether they have prior drunk or impaired driving convictions. Those who are convicted on a misdemeanor Class A charge for the first time will lose their license for one year as well as have their registration suspended.
