Wayne DUI Lawyer

Drunk Driving Defense Attorney in DuPage County the Wins Cases

For many people, a strong defense can help avoid some of the potentially serious consequences of a first DUI arrest. But things get more difficult the second time around. You may face stricter penalties, and your lawyer must develop a defense strategy that will work for you.

At the law offices of Michael T. Norris, Ltd. and John W. Callahan, Ltd., we tailor our defense strategies to meet our clients' needs. Located in DuPage County and serving clients throughout the area in places including Wayne, Elgin and South Elgin, Illinois, we are dedicated to pursuing defense strategies that get results no matter how serious the consequences you are facing.

Drunk Driving Charges: Facing Criminal and Civil Penalties

In Wayne, like elsewhere in Illinois, a DUI charge (often referred to as a DWI charge) involves both criminal and civil proceedings. The criminal proceedings relate to the consequences of your DUI — like whether or not you will go to jail, pay fees or do community service — while civil proceedings relate to license suspension.

At Michael T. Norris, Ltd. and John W. Callahan, Ltd., we will build a criminal case aimed at protecting your freedom and a civil one aimed at protecting your driver's license. If you are facing drunk driving charges for a second or third time, we take the increased penalties into account. Our attorneys build our defense aiming to minimize the impact a conviction has on your life. And, we will work to avoid a conviction altogether.

Lawyers Who Fight for Their Clients

While some criminal defense lawyers rush their clients into pleading guilty, Mike Norris and John Callahan look at every possible chance to fight for clients. We often find that cases can be won — even though other attorneys said they were impossible.

We believe that every person arrested for DUI in Wayne deserves an aggressive and skilled legal team. That is why we will take a thorough approach to your Wayne DUI defense and begin by getting copies of the video and audio dispatch tapes. These tapes often do not match what police officers claim happened at the scene. We also get records from chemical tests and seek out witnesses who can testify on your behalf.
