We represent clients charged with felony & misdemeanor DUI (driving under the influence). We advocate for license reinstatement, reduced charges, and dismissal of charges. We handle traffic violations including speeding tickets, reckless driving, and driving without a license. We assist clients at hearings before the Illinois Secretary of State with drivers license issues including reinstatement, obtaining a restricted license to drive, and reduction of license suspension periods.
A person charged with the offense of DUI faces a fine and court costs, imprisonment, or both, as well as a mandatory alcohol evaluation. A first-time DUI offender must pay a $250.00 reinstatement fee to have the Secretary of State reinstate his or her driver’s license; a second-time offender must pay a $500.00 reinstatement fee. If you are charged with a DUI offense, you should hire an attorney immediately.
Mike Baker prosecuted criminal cases at the District 2 Skokie courthouse for four years. By negotiating with the State's Attorney's
Office when appropriate, we help our clients avoid
time-consuming and costly DUI litigation. However,
if we deem a more aggressive approach is in our
client's best interest, we have a track record
of successfully defending clients charged with
DUI at: Rolling Meadows courthouse, Skokie DUI Court at Old Orchard,
Traffic court, Daley Center, Bridgeview, Maywood,
Markham, DUI in Lake county (Waukegan) or DuPage
county court (Wheaton) and McHenry County.
