Summary Suspension in Dupage County and Kane County

Get a Lawyer's Help With Your Suspended License

It's a lose/lose situation. If you are being accused of drunk driving, you can lose your driving privileges if you fail chemical testing, but you can also lose them if you refuse to submit to it. In both cases, you can face Statutory Summary Suspension of your driver's license. This suspension is automatic and starts on the 46th day after your DUI arrest.

The length of the suspension depends on whether the DUI was your first offense or a repeat offense. If you refuse to submit to chemical testing on a second offense, you could lose your driving privileges for three years and you will not be eligible for driving relief.

The law on summary suspension is complex. Many people struggle with figuring it out on their own, trying to save their driver's licenses before time runs out. But handling matters yourself is not your only option. You can turn the worry and the hassle over to an experienced attorney — someone with a proven record of results.
