John W Callahan has represented people charged with DUI in the Schaumburg and surrounding towns for more than 19 years. What should you do if you are arrested for a DUI in Schaumburg? First, you must attack the statutory summary suspension. What is the Statutory Summary Suspension? When you are arrested for a DUI in Schaumburg or any town in Illinois, the Secretary of State of Illinois will try to suspend your driver's license for anywhere from 6 months to 3 years depending on whether or not it is your first or second offense.
The most important thing to do when arrested for a DUI is to hire an experienced DUI defense lawyer to help you attack your suspension – this can prevent you from being suspended at all. This needs to be done right away – as soon as the same day as the DUI arrest.
Once the suspension issue is resolved you need to break down the police reports to determine if the DUI arrest can be invalidated. This is what an experienced DUI lawyer can help you with. A good DUI lawyer can often beat your criminal DUI charges in court if you refused a breathalyzer test. Sometimes, even if you submitted to a breathalyzer we can attack that and win your case despite the fact that the State will try to use the BAC against you in court.
If you are looking for a DUI lawyer or need help with your DUI Defense, feel free to call John W. Callahan if you have any questions at all.
