One of the most serious types of traffic offenses is driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI). People who violate drunk driving laws will be subject to criminal charges and could even risk being sent to jail for their offense. If you have been charged with DUI in Chicago, you will need representation from a traffic violation lawyer at our firm. At Fagan Fagan & Davis, we have a team of exceptional lawyers who focus on DUI defense and traffic violations, and they have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide you with comprehensive and superior representation.
When a person operates a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, with any amount of illegal narcotic in their system or with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or higher, they can be charged with DUI. People convicted of drunk driving risk some very harsh and life-altering penalties, including jail time, large fines, community service, alcohol rehabilitation or counseling, probation, and driver's license revocation. Individuals facing DUI charges almost always have their licenses suspended, and if convicted, face lengthy periods of license revocation which can be extremely inconvenient and may make it difficult to travel to work, school, run errands and provide transportation to others in your life.
