    Your question is almost impossible to answer. You will be able to find DUI lawyers that cost as little as a few hundred dollars and some as high as 10,000 dollars. In the end, your relationship with an attorney is a personal matter. You need to feel comfortable and trust the attorney, particularly when you plan on fighting both the suspension and the DUI. Having said that, you should expect to pay somewhere north of 2,500 for a reputable and experienced attorney to fight both your suspension...

    We must first know what state your brother was previously licensed. If he held an IL license and would like an IL license this process will occur in IL. If lives in MI and wants a license in MI then that is a different story. Being that you have asked the question in the IL section I would assume the answer is that he is and was an IL resident with an IL license. His ability to get a license will depend on the total number of DUIs he has had. IL has a lifetime revocation after 4 conviction...

  3. Is it necessary to have legal representation when having a formal hearing to get driving privileges back?

    It is not required to have an attorney but it is advisable. Formal hearings create a record of your testimony and the SOS ruling and finding of facts. If you say something regretful in the hearing it can lead to a denial and worse yet a more difficult time at the next hearing. For instance if you are evaluated as a significant risk but your testimony leads them to think you are an alcoholic or have signs of alcohism they deny you and recommend MORE classes before your next hearing.

    I will assume two facts in my answer: First, that your husband actually has 4 DUIs and second that he was arrested in Wheaton. Answer: A fourth DUI is generally a class 2 non-probational offense. In other words he cannot get probation and must serve prison time. Answer 2: Look to the right, do you see the name Don Ramsell--- if you do--- call him. If you don't ---look him up. If I was arrested in DuPage County that is who I would call. http://www.dupage-dui-attorney.com/attorney-...

    A DUI sentence usually has required alcohol and drug classes as well as fines. If the state wanted to send him to jail for failing to follow the terms of his sentence they would first need to allege a violation. If the violation alleges a failure to complete classes then the state must only prove that he failed to do so, and they must prove it by a preponderance of the evidence. An allegation of a failure to pay fines is slightly different because the state must prove there was a willful...

    Ted is right....first we must define a background check. Generally, they can be broken down into 2 classes. Government databases and private entity databases (equifax and the like). It would be safe to say that it appears in the government database based upon fingerprinting. The easiest way to confirm would be to pull your driving record and review. Private databases are trickier, the age of your case may be a benefit as databases where not as prevalent back then. In the end, there is...

    If this is calculated as your fourth DUI, it then could be charged as a class 2, non-probationable felony. In other words, the state will be seeking time on this and it may be mandatory depending on how they charge you. Charles Beach 111 W.

    Is it possible to be charged later with a DUI? Yes. Is it likely to happen.... NO. I cannot speak for other counties, my practice is pretty limited to Cook and Chicago. However, for the most part you are in the clear for the DUI charge. As to driving... You are legal to drive at this point. The tickets act as your license during this time period. What is important now is that you make your court appearance and get disposition on the tickets that will not effect your license. Charlie...
