Illinois DUI Overview
Drunk Driving Is A Crime In The Eyes Of The Law
If you made the mistake of driving under the influence, don’t make another mistake by failing to take the charges seriously or waiting to contact a lawyer. A strong and proactive defense is critical when your driving privileges and possibly your freedom are in jeopardy.
The Waukegan DUI defense attorneys of Stone & Associates will assert your rights and vigorously defend you after an arrest for drunk driving. Unlike lawyers who automatically seek to plead the case, our default is to fight the charges and limit the fallout in your life.
We practice in the criminal courts of Lake County and surrounding jurisdictions. Reach out to us for a free consultation if you or a family member were arrested for DUI.
A True DUI Defense
We are confident we can make a positive difference for anyone accused of driving under the influence or related offenses, no matter what the circumstances:
- First-time DUI
- Repeat offense
- Breath test refusal
- Felony DUI (third or fourth offense)
- Underage DUI (“zero tolerance”)
- Commercial driver (CDL)
- DUI accident (injury or fatality)
- Driving while impaired by drugs
Veteran criminal defense lawyer Jed Stone will examine the evidence and law enforcement handling of your case for opportunities to fight your drunk driving charges. Challenging traffic stops, field sobriety tests, Breathalyzer results and other facets has resulted in reduced charges, dismissals and acquittals. We will also pursue alternatives in appropriate cases, such as court supervision, to avoid or mitigate DUI penalties.
Don’t Let This Ruin Your Future
You don’t think of yourself as a criminal, but a DUI conviction results in a criminal record just the same. In addition to the loss of status in your community, it can do harm to your educational and employment opportunities.
Our drunk driving defense attorneys understand what is at stake. If you were arrested for DUI in Waukegan, Lake Forest or Northern Illinois, call Stone & Associates for a free consultation, at 847.336.7888
