Driving Under the Influence
DUI. Three letters nobody wants to hear. Time in the Kane County Jail? Losing your drivers license? Mandated counseling? Those are all things a judge can order. It is all on the table. In some cases, a DUI may even land you in prison.
Nearly everybody arrested for DUI is going to get their drivers license suspended. This suspension, called a Statutory Summary Suspension, will normally be set to start 46 days from the date of arrest. The Statutory Summary Suspension is technically a separate legal action with its own rules and procedures separate from the DUI. This suspension happens even to people who may not be guilty of DUI. How is that fair?
Matthew J. Haiduk understands what losing your driver’s license will do to your life. You have to get to work. You have to get your kids to school. Losing your license may ruin your life!
There are options for trying to avoid your suspension. Do you know about a Petition to Rescind your Suspension? BAIID? SCRAM? It may be possible to get the suspension rescinded even before it has started!
