La Salle County DUI Defense Attorney

Lawyer Defending Clients Against Drunk Driving Charges in Chicago and Throughout Illinois

A DUI arrest often comes as a surprise. Perhaps you were attending a party or work function or were having a good time at a bar with friends, and you had a couple drinks, but not enough to feel intoxicated. But on the way home, a police officer pulled you over, and the next thing you knew, you were being asked to step out of the car for a sobriety test, after which you quickly found yourself handcuffed and in the back of a police car. What should you do next?

Every year, tens of thousands of people are arrested in Illinois for driving under the influence of alcohol or other intoxicating substances, which is known as DUI or DWI. If you are arrested for drunk driving, your life will change in an instant. Following your arrest, if you fail or refuse to take a blood alcohol test, your driver's license will be automatically suspended, even if you are not convicted. If you are convicted, a first-time offense can result in up to one year of jail time and $2,500 in fines, and consequences increase for subsequent offenses. DUI charges should be taken very seriously, since they will affect your life for years to come.

You Need an Experienced DUI Defense Lawyer

If you have been arrested for drunk driving, you are at an immediate disadvantage, and you are likely looking at an uncertain future in which you are unable to drive legally and are facing large fines, probation, community service, or jail time. If you were involved in an accident in which someone was killed, you may also be charged with reckless homicide, which can lead to even more severe punishments. You need a legal advocate on your side who can find weaknesses in the case against you, petition to have your license reinstated, and, if necessary, reach an agreement for a reduced sentence.

Attorney Stephen M. Komie has over 40 years of experience litigating criminal defense cases, and he understands the huge impact that DUI charges will have on your life. He will thoroughly review your case and present you with your best options for defense, ensuring that your rights are protected and helping you achieve the best results in your case.

A History of Successful DUI Defense

"I was facing a potential felony conviction for a DUI. I spoke with Mr. Komie, and during this first meeting, he immediately made me feel comfortable. He and his associates were extremely thorough and diligent with my case, and they absolutely knew the ins and outs of the DUI laws and the court system. Ultimately, my felony case was dropped, and it was all due to the great work of Mr. Komie, his associate Mr. Anderson, and the other fantastic people of his firm. I could not be more pleased." - A satisfied client
