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, our Normal, IL DUI lawyers 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 privileges.

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 our DUI attorney serving Normal & Bloomington, IL by your side.
