We Defend Drunk Driving Charges And Serious Traffic Offenses
The potential consequences of an arrest for DUI demand experienced and aggressive defense. Without proper representation, you could be subject to jail time, fines and license revocation, not to mention collateral consequences for employment, education and other facets of your life.
Schwulst & Roseberry, P.C., provides experienced DUI defense in Bloomington-Normal and surrounding counties of central Illinois. Our law firm represents adults and underage drivers accused of driving under the influence. We also handle other traffic offenses, from driving while suspended for DUI to reckless driving or speeding. Contact us immediately to protect your rights.
Trial Lawyers Who Can Fight A DUI Conviction
You might avoid jail for a first-time DUI, but a conviction results in a mandatory 30-day hard suspension of your driver’s license. Some courts require drivers to install, at their own expenses, a breath-alcohol ignition interlock device (BAIID) before their driving privileges are restored. Repeat offenses or refusal to take the breath test can result in mandatory jail time or longer license suspension. Truck drivers and under-21 drivers also face enhanced penalties.
Our criminal defense lawyers, John P. Schwulst and Todd A. Roseberry, have more than 50 years of combined experience. They have defended thousands of clients, including countless DUI cases. Our legal team examines the traffic stop, field sobriety tests, Breathalyzer tests and every facet of the state’s case. We are prepared to go to trial to help clients avoid the consequences of a conviction or to negotiate on their behalf to mitigate the costs and penalties.
Experienced Representation For Traffic And License Violations
The penalties for driving on a revoked license are just as serious as the underlying DUI, especially on a second or third offense. We fight serious traffic offenses that might result in criminal charges and/or license sanctions such as:
• Driving while license revoked (DWLR)
• Driving without insurance
• Reckless driving or racing
• Leaving the scene of an accident (hit-and-run)
• Speeding tickets (20 mph or more over the limit)
• Running a stoplight
• Failing to stop for a school bus
• Habitual offender (three moving violations in one year)
Assisting Over-The-Road Truckers, College Students And Out-Of-State Drivers
