Both of the DUIs occurred over 20 years ago and I completed all required treatment. I don’t drink and I would like to get my license back now that I have children and a new job that I need to be able to drive for. Does the fact that it was over 20 years ago have any impact.
The fact that is 20 years certainly does not hurt. The fact that you completed all your treatment may or may not be relevant, depending upon what your classification is and what you’re drinking and or drug use has been like since you’ve completed treatment.
In Illinois there a numerous ways a DUI can be charged.

A lot of this depends on the facts and circumstances of the arrest and one's background. However, if an individual pleads guilty and then violates a condition of their sentence (for instance, to abstain from alcohol), then the prosecutor could file a petition to revoke the sentence and ask to...Read more »

I think it’s worth it. It’s painful to lose your license and deal with the Secretary of State. A lawyer who has a lot of experience with the court system in your county will have a lot better chance of saving your supervision than you would on your own.
It appears the cop asked you to submit to a blood or breath test. If you refused his direct request to you, that is a refusal for which your license can be suspended. The ER blood draw does not cure the refusal.
For dui case state says I have 14 days to respond to get a blow machine and get a work permit I don’t have court for 2 more weeks or ignore the letters and let my lawyer take care of it just don’t want to hurt myself
You should be asking your lawyer this question. I usually advise people to send in the application and then review the evidence before paying for the device. But every case is different. You should really hire a lawyer if you have a pending DUI charge.
You need to hire an attorney and get a motion to quash on file. Depending on how long ago the warrant was issued, you may currently have a revoked drivers license. Your attorney can help clear that up through this process as well. Then you need to defend or resolve the DUI.
11 months later, I got into a car accident. Officer gave m a revoked license ticket and a traffic ticket. I know I shouldn’t been driving. How do I go about with the old and new traffic violations. I wasn’t arrested by the officer just An I bond.
Even though this situation was under the legal limit, you still could get charged with a DUI under a different subsection of the DUI statute. I would suggest looking for an attorney right away to discuss your options.
Inalienable rights I would generally say are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I suppose you could consider the consumption of alcohol a pursuit of happiness. Generally, lawyers, at least lawyers that I know, do not speak about the consumption of alcohol being an inalienable right. It...Read more »
