Defending Against DUI, Traffic And Other Misdemeanor Charges
Being stopped for drunk driving, a traffic violation or another misdemeanor charge is upsetting and unsettling. You can incur high fines, a driver’s license revocation and even jail time. Most people do not consider the legal ramifications, such as how a conviction can affect future employment. We understand that people make mistakes, and we are here to assist. Let one of our experienced attorneys challenge your criminal arrest in court.
In DuPage County, our criminal defense lawyers at the firm of Ekl, Williams & Provenzale LLC know the Illinois laws. We have represented numerous clients on a variety of misdemeanor charges (as well as felony arrests). Our legal advocates have over 40 years of combined experience defending every kind of misdemeanor arrest and will work tirelessly to advocate for you.
Representing Charges That Are Not So Minor
If you’ve been arrested for a misdemeanor charge, there are various punishments that can affect you for the rest of your life.
Past misdemeanor cases we have represented include:
- DUI and DWI
- Traffic citations and violations
- Ordinance violations
- Petty theft
- Breaking and entering
- Domestic violence or violating an order of protection
- Assault and battery
As former prosecutors, our defense lawyers have evaluated and tried thousands of DUIs, assault and battery cases, and domestic disputes before both judges and juries. We will work to present a strategy that can reduce the charge or even have it thrown out. We know that good people sometimes make mistakes, and a minor offense should not affect your entire future.
We Ask The Right Questions
We will not simply settle for an out-of-court plea that is not in your best interests. We will serve and defend to help keep your record intact. We will ask questions such as:
- Did the officer follow the proper procedures to arrest you?
- Were you read your Miranda rights?
- Were there extenuating circumstances?
