Bloomington DUI Attorneys By Your Side
Law enforcement officers in Bloomington do not fill their cells and records
with arrests for theft, assault, drug crimes, and other serious offenses.
Instead the most prevalent criminal violation is driving under the influence (DUI). At Johnson Law Group, we recognize the importance of defending people
from harsh DUI charges, either by fighting to have the case dropped altogether
or minimize the sentencing so that it does not take away your driving
Legal and administrative penalties tied to DUI convictions include:
- High fines paid to state
- Time spent in jail
- Mandatory ignition interlock device installment
- License suspension or revocation
On the surface, the aforementioned penalties may seem manageable but most
people do not realize just how much they rely on their vehicle until they
are legally restricted from driving it. Small tasks like picking up groceries
or bringing your kids to school can become big headaches as you arrange
rides and call in favors. Employment opportunities may become few and
far between as you find that you can only feasibly work at locations within
walking distance. The trouble of a DUI conviction is in fact largescale,
even if you have a spotless driving and criminal record.
In the event that you have already been convicted of a DUI and had your
license suspended, you will need to schedule a reinstatement hearing just
to get it back. The hearing is more showing up, asking to have your license
reinstated, and then walking out with it in hand. You actually will need
to convince the administrative judge that you deserve to have your license
reinstated. For this reason, and many more, it is highly recommended by
both legal professionals and the Illinois Department of Motor Vehicles
that you attend this hearing with a DUI attorney by your side.
