Drug Possession and Trafficking Defense
Our attorneys are practiced at defending against drug possession and trafficking charges. We have successfully represented defendants charged with offenses involving marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, crack, heroine, ecstasy and other substances.
Truckers Stopped for DUI
Although under Illinois' Statutory Summary Suspension law, you have the right to refuse testing of your blood, breath or urine following a traffic stop, your refusal to submit to testing will result in suspension of your license. The Statutory Summary Suspension law treats commercial driver's license (CDL) holders particularly harshly. If a CDL holder receives a Statutory Summary Suspension, CDL privileges will be suspended for 12 months upon a first offense. A second offense carries a lifetime CDL suspension.
Commercial Driver's License (CDL) Violations
We serve drivers and companies charged with commercial motor vehicle violations such as interstate trucking operations cited for overweight vehicle or unsafe vehicle violations. We welcome the opportunity to provide local representation for out-of-state clients.
If you have been cited for being a drunk driver or for driving an overweight vehicle or for unsafe vehicle violations, please contact us , for a consultation.
