Hiring a skilled Joliet DUI lawyer is key to successfully defending against charges of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. DUI laws are complex, and Attorney Jack Zaremba can provide invaluable legal help as you defend against criminal charges and address issues that may affect your driver's license. The penalties of a drunk driving arrest can be costly, even for a first-time DUI. You may be looking at the suspension of your license, heavy fines, and a possible jail sentence. A second or third arrest for DUI can lead to felony charges and mandatory jail time. The stakes could not be any higher for a repeat DUI offender.

When you hire our firm in your Will County DUI case, you will have one of the most experienced and knowledgeable DUI attorneys in Joliet representing you. As a former prosecutor in Will County and a current DUI defense lawyer, Attorney Zaremba has handled thousands of DUI cases, and he will use his knowledge and skills to present the best possible defense for your case.

We Do Our Own Investigation

Our firm does not just sit back and take the word of prosecutors when determining what happened in a DUI case. We do our own investigations. We work hard to uncover evidence that supports our position that you were not under the influence of alcohol. In each case, we fight for a reduction in your charges or a dismissal if possible. We only negotiate with the prosecutor if it is in your best interests to do so. Where other attorneys throw in the towel, we are prepared to take cases to trial and advocate aggressively on behalf of our clients.

How Can a DUI Defense Lawyer Help You?

Our experienced DUI defense attorney can:

  • Evaluate your case: We will examine the facts of your case, including any evidence against you, to determine whether the charges are defensible.
  • Protect your rights: We can ensure that your rights will be protected throughout the legal process, including during any police questioning or searches.
  • Develop a defense strategy: Based on the facts of your case, Attorney Zaremba can create a customized defense strategy that is designed to minimize the charges against you or even have them dismissed altogether.
  • Negotiate plea deals: If a plea bargain is in your best interests, we can negotiate with the prosecutor to obtain the best possible deal for you.
  • Represent you in court: If your case goes to trial, Mr. Zaremba can advocate on your behalf in court and present your defense strategy to the judge and jury.
  • Provide guidance and support: Throughout the legal process, we can provide guidance and support to help you make informed decisions about your case and ensure you understand your legal rights and options.

Our DUI defense attorney can help you navigate the complex legal system and work towards the best possible outcome for your case.

We will carefully review all the details of your case, including police reports, witness statements, and any evidence obtained during your DUI arrest. We will then use this information to help you determine the best course of action, explain the potential consequences of a DUI conviction, and offer guidance on how to proceed. In some cases, we may challenge the validity of any evidence obtained during the arrest, such as the results of a breathalyzer test or field sobriety tests, in order to weaken the prosecution's case. We may also seek alternative sentencing, such as a diversion program or community service, in some cases where a conviction is likely.

Experience Matters

Our firm has experience in multiple types of DUI cases, including the following:

Common Questions About Illinois DUI Cases

  • What penalties am I facing? Depending on the severity of the offense, you may face penalties such as fines, license suspension, mandatory alcohol education, community service, or even jail time.
  • Can I fight the charges? Yes, it is possible to challenge drunk driving charges in court, but it is important to consult with a qualified DUI attorney to understand your options.
  • Will I have to appear in court? Yes, in most cases, you will need to appear in court to address the charges against you.
  • Will I lose my license? If you fail a chemical test of your blood alcohol content after being arrested for DUI, or if you refuse to take this type of test, your driver's license will be automatically suspended. If you are convicted of DUI, your license will be revoked for at least one year. However, you may qualify for a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP) or Restricted Driving Permit (RDP) that will allow you to maintain your driving privileges during a period of suspension or revocation while requiring you to use a breath alcohol ignition interlock device on your vehicle(s).
  • Can I refuse to take a breathalyzer test? After you are arrested for DUI, you can refuse to submit to chemical testing of your breath, blood, or urine. However, doing so will cause your driver's license to be automatically suspended.
  • How long will a DUI stay on my record? In Illinois, a DUI conviction will remain on your criminal record permanently. This can affect your ability to get car insurance or employment in the future.
  • What should I do after a DUI arrest? If you have been arrested for drunk driving and charged with DUI, it is essential to seek legal advice from an experienced DUI lawyer who can guide you through the legal process and help you understand your rights and options. It is best to consult with a local attorney that has experience in the county where you were arrested and charged with DUI. Attorney Jack L. Zaremba is a former prosecutor in Will County who has handled thousands of DUI cases, and he can use his knowledge and experience to present the best defense in your case.

If you need to get your license back after a DUI suspension or revocation, our firm can assist with driver's license reinstatement. We can also help address any other traffic violations you may be facing, including speeding, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license, or leaving the scene of an accident.
