Springfield Lawyer For Driver's License Suspension Defense

You Need To Drive To Work

If you have failed or refused a breath test after being pulled over in Illinois, you face a statutory summary driver's license suspension. Your license will automatically be suspended 45 days after you receive notice, unless you act quickly. I am experienced with the process for challenging this suspension. I can fight the suspension, so you can continue driving.

Statutory summary suspension is a civil administrative process that happens even before a court decides if you are convicted of criminal DUI. It is separate from the criminal process. As your lawyer, I will handle the civil and criminal elements of your DUI charge with equal aggression and attention.

If you need assistance to avoid a suspended license, call me, W. Scott Hanken, Attorney at Law, at 217-718-4951. You can also visit my contact page to schedule a free consultation at my Springfield office.

No Time To Waste

I have challenged license suspensions throughout Springfield, Sangamon County and central Illinois. Wherever your charge occurred, you need to obtain skilled representation as soon as possible. The sooner you contact me, the more likely I am to be able to help you retain your driving privileges. A possible alternative to suspension is a breath alcohol ignition interlock device (BAIID). Once installed, the BAIID allows you to start your car after breathing, unintoxicated, into the device.

It is important to keep in mind that the state of Illinois considers driving a privilege, not a right. A requirement of that privilege is that you submit to a sobriety test when law enforcement requests one. This is known as implied consent, and you face a longer period of statutory summary suspension if you refuse a breath, blood or urine test.
