Drunk Driving

Drunk Driving DUI/DWI Defense

If you have been drinking, the best decision is not to drive. In Illinois, drinking and driving is a serious crime punished with severe criminal penalties. Driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher-roughly the equivalent of three drinks consumed in an hour for an average sized man-can result in a license suspension, fines, and a significant increase in your insurance rates.

At the law offices of Donahue, Sowa & Magana, we understand the potential costs of a DUI conviction and work hard to protect your driving privileges. Contact us today to discuss your drunk driving allegations.

Illinois Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys

In Illinois, you can be charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or a combination of the two. Even a first offense must be treated seriously. Although the punishments are not as severe for first-time DUI convictions as they are for multiple DUI convictions, any conviction increases the potential penalties for future convictions. For this reason, we aggressively defend all drunk driving charges.

We challenge every DUI case in court; we understand that a plea bargain that results in a conviction is too high a price. If there is sufficient justification to challenge the stop, the breath test, any field sobriety tests, or other procedural errors, we will use our trial experience to seek an acquittal.

Handling Secretary of State License Reinstatement Hearings

If you have been convicted for drunk driving and your license has been suspended or revoked, we can effectively represent you in the Illinois Secretary of State Driver's License Reinstatement hearings to restore your driving privileges. We understand the factors that the hearing board will consider in such this process, and can help you prepare your request.
