Following a hard day at the office, a relaxing evening with friends or a late night in St. Louis, flashing lights in your rearview mirror is an unwelcome sight. It can happen to any of us, regardless of our profession, income level or age. At some point in your life, you or a loved one may face charges of drunk driving or driving under the influence.
There are criminal and civil aspects to drunk driving and drug-impaired driving charges in Illinois, each of which must be addressed quickly in order to avoid suspension or revocation of your driver's license and reduce the possibility of stiff fines or jail time.
