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.

How Much Are DUI Attorney Fees?
Experienced DUI Attorneys Serving Will and DuPage Counties
When a person has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), it carries serious consequences, including the potential for spending time in jail. When the person is undocumented, the impact of a DUI arrest and conviction can be even more serious.
At The Law Office, P.C., we understand how important a strong defense is to each DUI defendant. Attorney Mary provides effective advocacy on behalf of each client, developing a strong defense based on the unique circumstances of the case. In each case, Ms. Reyna focuses on minimizing the negative consequences for her clients and their families.
DUI Convictions Have Serious Consequences
The financial consequences of a DUI begin to add up as soon as a driver is arrested. Depending upon the circumstances, a driver may have to spend significant money for bond, as well as for the towing and storage of their vehicle. In addition, the loss of the ability to use a vehicle may lead to unemployment. While a DUI arrest can be costly, it is even more so if the driver is convicted.
Each driver who is charged with DUI has unique concerns about how a conviction could affect the things that are most important to them. One driver may be primarily concerned about keeping his driving privileges so that he can keep his job in a city that is a half hour drive from where he lives. Another driver may be more concerned about whether the charges that she is facing could lead to deportation because of her immigration status. Whatever concerns a driver has, there are many terrible consequences that are possible in a DUI case, especially if it is mishandled.
Retaining a knowledgeable DUI defense attorney reduces a driver’s chance of conviction and can minimize the overall consequences for the driver.
Effective Defense Against DUI Charges
Ms. Reyna has a thorough understanding of the elements of the crime of driving under the influence of alcohol. Her experience with defending against DUI charges enables her to hone in on areas in which the state may not be able to meet its burden of proof. Some of the defenses that can be raised against DUI charges include:
- Challenging the administration of field sobriety tests, including whether the officer had the proper training to interpret the results of the tests;
- Questioning whether the traffic stop was conducted in accordance with the law, specifically analyzing whether the officer had probable cause to stop the vehicle initially; and
- Raising evidentiary challenges to testing done on blood and urine samples, as well as any breathalyzer results from the scene of the stop.

Criminal Defense Attorney For Veterans
When researching lawyers, you should look for attorneys in your area who specialize in or have experience with DUI/DWI cases. Their local professional relationships and knowledge of DUI laws will be invaluable to your case.
DUI attorneys should be able to handle all cases related to DUI or DWI, including charges for:
- Refusing to take a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test.
- Driving with an open container of alcohol in your vehicle.
- Underage drinking and driving.
- Cases involving injury or death resulting from DUI.
An attorney CANNOT guarantee the outcome of your case, but he or she can advise you of the best way to handle your charges.
In many cases, your BAC results are enough to convict you. If convicted, you'll face a range of potential penalties, which vary by state, type of offense, and number of prior DWI convictions.
Penalties often include:
- Driver's license suspension or revocation.
- A fine.
- Jail, community service, and/or probation.
- Alcohol or drug education programs or treatment.
- Installation of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle.
Since DWI charges and penalties are serious, many people choose to hire a DUI attorney.
From how to plead to what penalties to expect, your lawyer can guide you through the entire court process.
