TRAFFIC / DUI
You need your driver’s license to function in today’s society. Without your driver’s license, your way of life will be severely handicapped. If your driver’s license is at risk of being suspended or revoked, you need an experienced Illinois criminal defense lawyer to help you.
What Can Cause Your Driver’s License To Be Suspended?
Some offenses that cause license suspensions include:
Consuming or possessing alcohol as a minor
Driving around a railroad signal
Passing a stopped school bus that is loading or unloading passengers
Speeding in a school zone
Driver’s License Revocation
Unlike a suspension, there is not a set reinstatement date for a driver’s license revocation. Your license could be revoked for a number of reasons, such as:
Felonies involving motor vehicles
Leaving the scene of an accident
If your license has been suspended or revoked, contact the attorneys at Stone & Associates for help. During a suspension or revocation period, restricted work, school and medical permits can be made available.

Should I Refuse Or Submit To A Breathalyzer?

Investigating the initial traffic stop is an important step as it triggers sobriety and breath testing prior to an arrest. Portable breathalyzers require calibration. The police officers must have adequate training and possess experience in test administration.
The Need For Skilled Representation When The Stakes Are High
Disputing breathalyzer test results is extremely challenging, yet important in bringing issues to the forefront. Due diligence in all aspects of a DUI case is paramount. Errors occur that can create reasonable doubt. Mistakes that could mean the difference between a conviction and a dismissal or acquittal.
The penalties involved in a drunk driving conviction go beyond fines and jail time. The loss of your license affects your personal and professional life. A criminal record follows you as you apply for jobs or pursue educational opportunities.
