DUI And Traffic Violations

Do Not Underestimate The Consequences Of A DUI Conviction

A DUI in Illinois is a serious criminal offense. The penalties include potential jail time, loss of your driving privileges for up to a year and thousands of dollars in fines. In addition, there are other costs. If you need to drive during your statutory summary suspension (SSS) period, you will need to obtain an ignition interlock device, which you pay to have installed and maintained.

Permanent Record

A DUI conviction on your record is permanent. It never expires and any additional charges, no matter how far in the future, will always be your second DUI.

At the Nathan J. Noble, P.C. Attorney at Law, we provide an aggressive defense for individual in northern Illinois charged with a DUI. Our attorney is a former prosecutor in Belvidere and understands how the prosecution works to develop their case. He is regularly in court and is familiar with the judges and prosecutors. He understands how to build a drunk driving defense and protects his clients' long-term best interests.

Driving During Your License Suspension

In Illinois, it may be possible for a first time DUI offender to drive during the SSS, but they will need to obtain a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP) from the court. With an MDDP, you can then install a Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID).

This device is like a Breathalyzer that you need to provide a breath sample every time you start your vehicle and while driving. It is important to keep in mind that if you have an MDDP, but drive a vehicle without an interlock device, you face a potential felony charge.

Commercial Drivers License Violations

For professional drivers with a commercial driver's license (CDL), the consequence of a DUI are little short of catastrophic. The loss of your driving privileges will mean the end of your employment as a truck driver or delivery driver. Our attorney understands the critical nature of these charges and can help defend your license and your livelihood.

Traffic Violations

Some people believe challenging a speeding ticket is not worth the time it takes to contact a lawyer and appear in court. The problem occurs when a driver accumulates too many points against their license; they can lose their license to a suspension or revocation. If you live in the Boone County area, you know that without a license, it can be difficult to go to work, school or a store.

Police make mistakes and errors during traffic stops. They can be sloppy or lazy. Our attorney knows what to look for and the best way to have charges reduced or dismissed. A single ticket may not be significant, but many people forget about prior tickets they paid, only to be shocked to find one day their license has been suspended.
