Elgin, Illinois DUI Drug Defense Attorney
Aggressive Kane County Criminal Lawyer
Helping You Avoid Conviction for a DUI Drug Charge
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious offense in Illinois that can result in serious penalties that may include the loss of your license, fines and jail time, not to mention the additional cost you will incur in increased insurance premiums. Many people arrested for driving under the influence of drugs are not aware of what constitutes "under the influence" in these situations. It may surprise you.
Illinois drivers can be charged for two different types of crimes in these cases. The first involves people who are impaired by drugs to the point where they are not able to safely operate a vehicle. The second involves people who are operating a vehicle while they have drugs in their system. In these cases, it does not matter whether you were prescribed the drug or you were using an illegal one. It only matters that you were impaired.
A conviction on either type of charge can have severe consequences, and having an experienced attorney may be your best option for avoiding one. I am Elgin DUI drugs defense lawyer Brian J.
