Fighting DUI/DWI Charges In Illinois

In Illinois, it's called driving under the influence (DUI). In Missouri, it's called driving while intoxicated (DWI). No matter what you call it, however, it's a serious offense that can create significant problems for you and your family.

Trial Skill Isn't A Nice Idea — It's A Necessity

When your freedom, your license, your career and your finances are on the line, you don't want a lawyer who might be willing to take your case to trial if needed. You want a lawyer who can and will. You want someone who has real experience with jury trials, someone who will fight every step of the way for you.

At Hollingshead & Dudleys, we have extensive courtroom experience trying complicated drunk driving cases. We understand the details of breath and blood tests, standardized field sobriety tests, gas chromatography and other key evidence. We also know how to carefully analyze police procedure to ensure that your constitutional rights were not violated.

This combination of trial advocacy and meticulous analysis has lead to powerful results for many clients. In one case, we represented a driver who was charged with felony assault and DWI after crashing the vehicle and seriously injuring a passenger. According to blood tests, the driver's BAC was .271 percent — more than three times the legal limit. Yet we were able to get both charges dismissed.
