Wheaton DUI Defense Attorney

Wheaton IL DUI Defense Attorney

DuPage County Lawyer for Clients Charged With Drunk Driving

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is never a good idea under any circumstances. In addition to the obvious physical dangers of causing an accident, the potential legal consequences can also be life-changing. At The Law Offices of O’Donnell & Nierman, Ltd., we understand that when you have been charged with DUI, you need an attorney who can provide reliable, honest representation throughout the process.

Experienced Illinois Criminal Defense Lawyer

The penalties associated with a conviction of driving under the influence (DUI) can be extremely severe, even for a first-time offender. The consequences are even more serious for repeat offenders and for those accused of causing bodily injury or death due to drunk driving. Attorney Michael P. O'Donnell has helped many clients facing DUI charges and is ready to put that experience to work for you. As a former lead prosecutor in a DUI courtroom, Mr. O'Donnell has handled hundreds of DUI cases including conducting hearings and trials against some of the best attorneys in the state. As a defense attorney, Mr. O'Donnell works to get the best result possible for his clients, and has even prevailed in cases where the police had received blood alcohol content (BAC) test results.

Drivers License Suspension

In the state of Illinois, if you fail or refuse a BAC test, you will automatically have your driving privileges suspended by the Secretary of State. This suspension is in addition to any penalties associated with a conviction. At our firm, we are equipped to help you ensure that your rights are fully protected and to get you back on the road quickly through one of the various relief programs available in Illinois. Our team is prepared to assist you in applying for the following:

  • A Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP);
  • Participation in the Illinois breath alcohol ignition interlock device (BAIID) program;
  • A restricted driving permit; and
  • Full restoration of your driving privileges.

Investigating Your Arrest

As a former prosecutor and military police officer, Attorney Michael P. O'Donnell recognizes how important it is for the officer on the scene to comply with all appropriate protocols. Even a single mistake can lead to the charges against you being reduced or dismissed altogether. Mr. O'Donnell will review the details and circumstances of your arrest, looking for any inconsistencies that could be used in your defense. If your rights have been compromised during the stop, in the course of your arrest, or during processing, he is ready to fight for justice on your behalf.

At our law firm, we also understand that, in some cases, the evidence may be too substantial to overcome. That does not mean the situation is hopeless. We recognize the importance of negotiating with prosecutors and law enforcement to find creative solutions to your case. You may have diversionary alternatives available that can allow you to avoid a conviction and to protect your future.
