Frequently Asked Questions at the Initial DUI Consultation

Question: I got arrested for a DUI, am I going to jail?

Just because you’ve been arrested for a DUI does not mean you’re going to do jailtime. In Illinois, DUI is a class A misdemeanor for a first offense. That carries up to one year of county jail time. Josh fights to keep you from doing any jail time. Often times, we can avoid our DUI clients getting a conviction on their record, get their DUI charge reduced, or even get their DUI completely dismissed.

Question: Am I going to lose my driver’s license?

After you’ve been arrested for a DUI, you will get a letter in the mail from the Illinois Secretary of State informing you that your driver’s license is going to be suspended 46 days after your arrest. This suspension is called a Statutory Summary Suspension. Attorney Josh Reeves fights this Suspension so you can keep your license and stay on the road. Many times, especially for first offenders, Josh is able to help those charged with a DUI keep their driver’s license.

Question: How does a DUI attorney fight charges?

There are countless ways an experienced DUI lawyer can fight a DUI. When you’re being arrested for a DUI the police will administer three tests known as the standardized field sobriety tests. These are:

  • Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN)
  • Walk-and-Turn
  • One-Leg Stand

A good DUI defense attorney can attack these tests if they were administered improperly by the Police agency administering the field sobriety tests. They can also challenge whether the stop made by the police was lawful, or ensuring that the breathalyzer used by the Police was calibrated correctly.
