In Illinois, penalties for a first-time DUI are harsh. You can lose your driving privileges, pay hundreds of dollars in fines, and even spend some time behind bars. For repeat offenders, the consequences are even more severe. Multiple DUIs are often charged as a felony, with longer license suspensions/revocations, heavier fines, and the possibility of extended time in prison. With so much on the line, you need a strong advocate in your corner to ensure that your rights and interests are fully protected.
