Driving under the Influence

Driving under the Influence

The Botti Law Firm, P.C. represents clients who have been arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, also known as DUI. A DUI conviction holds serious penalties including jail time, large fines and probation. Further, a DUI conviction can cost you not only your driving privileges but also your job. Our DUI defense attorneys understand the significant impact a DUI arrest can have on your criminal record and your life and we aggressively challenge DUI charges for our clients.

Former DUI Prosecutors

Our firm’s criminal defense lawyers consist of former DUI prosecutors. We have a thorough understanding of DUI laws since we have handled thousands of DUI cases from both the prosecution and defense sides.

Effect on Driver’s License

There are two aspects to a DUI charge: a criminal case and a civil case. As part of the civil case, there are license ramifications. Your driver’s license will automatically be suspended pursuant to an administrative procedure known as a summary suspension. If retaining your license is a priority for you, you must act quickly and give us a call. License suspension and revocation are complicated issues, and it is important that you have one of our skilled lawyers handle these matters on your behalf.

For nearly fifty years the Botti Law Firm, P.C. has been aggressively defending our clients who have been charged with crimes. We represent clients throughout Illinois and in major cities across the nation. Whether you have been arrested in Cook County, DuPage County, Lake County, Kane County, Illinois, or in another state, our experienced criminal defense attorneys are available to defend you against all types of criminal charges.
