Chicago Out of State DUI Attorney

Actions by the State of Illinois

Federal and state campaigns against driving while intoxicated are intended to reduce the damage to property and lives that can result from drinking and operating a vehicle. All states take DUI charges seriously and seek to successfully prosecute those that are arrested. If you have been charged with DUI in Illinois, you will face prosecution of those charges in our state plus possible suspension or revocation of your driver's license in your home state.

Do not risk conviction. It is vital that you get assistance from an experienced Chicago DUI lawyer who knows the laws of Chicago and how DUI prosecutions are carried out in our state.

Impact of the Driver License Compact

If you are not from this state, the state still has the power to convict you on DUI charges and suspend your driving privileges here. Illinois cannot physically take your out of state driver's license. There is an agreement, however, between all states except Michigan, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Massachusetts, named the Driver License Compact. This agreement provides for states to exchange information on traffic offenses, including DUIs. If your home state is not one of the four states mentioned above, they may still take action against you if your violation is reported to them by this state.

Illinois DUI Lawyers

The Toney Law Firm, LLC wants you to understand that the above agreement between states also works in reverse. If you are convicted of a DUI offense in another state, Illinois can learn of your conviction and suspend your driving privileges. This exchange of information applies to all types of DUI charges including those involving a felony, underage DUI, first time DUI and others.

The penalties for a conviction for DUI can involve stiff fines, community service, driver's license and registration revocation and jail or prison time. Conviction can adversely affect your life for years to come and become part of your permanent record. You want a Chicago DUI defense attorney who knows the state's DUI laws and has experience at successfully defending DUI charges in this city. You want someone who will work to protect your rights locally.

Contact a Chicago DUI Defense Attorney to successfully resolve any issues relating to DUI charges away from your home state.
