As a DUI lawyer I have represented hundreds of people charged with driving under the influence of alcohol in my career of 18 years. This weekend, we may have bumped into the perfect storm for driving under the influence of alcohol arrests. Why? First, you have a weekend before the St. Patrick's Day holiday which is typically marked by much celebratory drinking. Combine this with the fact that we “spring forward” due to the daylight savings time rule and you have a significant portion of the population that is both tired and intoxicated.
Even without driving under the influence of alcohol arrests, the week after “spring forward” is typically marked by a higher rate of traffic accidents including reckless I'm aside and other fatal car crashes. Because the St. Patrick's Day holiday falls on a Thursday, the entire weekend before that was loaded with holiday gatherings and festivities.
If you have been arrested for a driving under the influence of alcohol charge in Schaumburg, Arlington Heights, Barrington, or any northwest suburb location from the city of Chicago, you should contact the DUI lawyer John W Callahan who can help you with your DUI arrest. We have represented thousands of clients over the past two decades to successful outcomes with their DUI cases.
If you have been arrested for a DUI, do not wait until your first court date to contact a professional do you want to lawyer. Instead, you should call an experienced attorney who handles driving under the influence of alcohol charges immediately to prevent your license from being suspended. Losing your license can do serious damage to your career and your best bet to prevent that from happening is to file a petition to contest the suspension literally the day after the arrest.
