As a DUI lawyer who represents clients charged with DUI in Arlington Heights and Schaumburg many clients ask what the difference is between the two. While both a Schaumburg DUI arrest and an Arlington Heights DUI arrest are heard in the same court building (district 3 of the Cook County circuit in Rolling Meadows), one village is prosecuted by the Cook County States Atty. and the other village is prosecuted by a local prosecutor. Schaumburg DUI arrests are prosecuted by Anita Alvarez and the Cook County states Atty.'s office. Arlington Heights DUI charges, however, are prosecuted by the local prosecutor who handles their cases.Very often, the Arlington Heights prosecutors will work to negotiate a case to resolve it. Lately, the Cook County prosecutors office has also begun to negotiate cases a bit more in good faith then it has in the past few years. Obviously, that is my opinion.If you have been arrested for DUI case in Arlington Heights or Schaumburg, feel free to call our office to discuss your case.
