Every year, thousands of drivers are pulled over, arrested, and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. New laws and penalties, such as jail time, huge fines, and license suspension can make the consequences of an arrest costly, time consuming and difficult. The State of Illinois spends millions of dollars in grants to enforce DUI laws, while civil forfeiture laws may allow the state to seize the vehicle of a driver arrested for DUI.
At Pignatelli & Associates, PC, we can help you fight to maintain your innocence and achieve the best outcome for your case. People who stand up and fight DUI charges with the help of an experienced and knowledgeable team of defense lawyers can reduce their chances of conviction. With the help of a skilled and trial-tested attorney, Illinois defendants may be able to have their charges reduced, or their case dismissed entirely.
If you or someone you know has been arrested for DUI in Illinois, the worst thing they can do for your case is to fight alone or give up.
