More and more people each year are charged with driving under the influence. But not all DUI cases are the same. Just as all DUI lawyers are not the same. In the case of alleged alcohol impairment, your blood alcohol content (BAC) can make a major difference in both the charges against you and in the penalties you face. Moreover, while the penalties for DUI are similar, and in some cases the same, whether alcohol or drugs are involved, the evidence that the prosecutor will seek to introduce in order to try to convict you will be markedly different. Additional variables are underage DUI, DUI with a child passenger, DUI causing injury, and aggravated DUI, among others.
Any effective criminal defense attorney can inform you of the strengths and weaknesses of your case to outline the risks of possible conviction or punishment. They may offer you information but leave it in your hands whether to plead guilty or contest to take your case to trial. The Hispanic Illinois Criminal Defense Attorneys will go the extra mile to give you a wide range of options for resolving a serious criminal charge. Our Spanish speaking attorneys will not leave you to make these critical choices on your own and we will look for ways to protect your interests through the proposition of creative alternatives, such as treatment options, community service alternatives or deferred entry of judgment. Our Spanish Speaking Criminal Defense Attorneys are committed to the protection of your freedom, your record and your rights.

What Is Criminal Defense Lawyer?
The first law against drunk driving was passed in New York in 1910. Before long, every state in the US had banned driving a car while intoxicated, which is presumably more dangerous that riding a horse in the same state. These early laws did not specify a maximum BAC (blood alcohol concentration) or describe tests to be administered to the person accused of drunk driving. They merely stated that one should not drive drunk and left it to police officers and judges to enforce this how they saw fit.
The first maximum BAC for driver was set in 1938: that year, it became illegal to drive with a BAC over .15, or 15%. This number was based on studies conducted by the American Medical Association and the National Safety council, who both agreed that research showed a person with a BAC under .15 could still drive reasonably well.
One current controversy in DWI law is the question of the role law enforcement is meant to play in addressing this problem. If a person is convicted of driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, should they be punished or rehabilitated? Is the punishment approach failing to effectively address the problem, or is the rehabilitation approach merely letting people off too easy?
What To Ask DUI Attorney?
DUI convictions are often much more serious and the results long-lasting than people understand. This is why it's important to have a qualified attorney on your side if you are facing charges for this crime. Many people will be tempted to forgo hiring a lawyer, especially when they see the fees. However, the cost of not hiring one even if you are admitting guilt can be devastating. Here are some common questions about attorneys answered.
What happens if you are convicted?
Without proper representation from a qualified attorney, the conviction terms will vary by state, but common consequences include jail time, high fines, suspension of driving license for up to a year, community service, probation, vehicle impounded, job loss, drastic insurance increases, and the mark will remain on your record for many years.
What if I can't afford a DUI lawyer?
Can you afford not to hire a legal representative? DUI offenses often come with hefty price tags including court fees, vehicle impound, driving classes, and jail time which can result in loss of pay or even jeopardize your job. Although a lawyer can be costly, they can also help you save a great deal of money as well as your future. They can work with you and within the court system to get you driving as soon as possible again and even protect your job so you won't have to worry about far-reaching consequences. When you consider the potential long-term implications of a conviction, the legal representative fees are often greatly worth it.
