Proven Strategies for Fighting Criminal Allegations in Bolingbrook, IL

You may have never thought you would find yourself in this position where you could face criminal charges. A perfectly normal night in your life may have ended in arrest completely unexpectedly.

DUI Defense Lawyer in Bolingbrook, IL

A DUI can have a far-reaching impact on your life. Losing your driving privileges for at least six months is a nearly automatic consequence of a drunk driving arrest. In most situations, you have nothing to lose by fighting this case at trial. In the alternative, if this is your first DUI, and there are no aggravating circumstances, Attorney Blatti may be able to make a case for you to receive court supervision. If you successfully complete a period of supervision—which would likely include community service and substance abuse treatment—you might walk away without a criminal record.

Your DUI might be a felony if:

  • This is your second DUI and you had a child passenger.
  • You were driving for Uber, Lyft, or another paid service and had a passenger.
  • This is your third or further DUI.
  • Someone was injured.
  • You caused a fatal accident.
  • Your license was suspended due to a previous DUI.
  • You did not have a valid license.
  • Your registration was expired or invalid.
  • You did not have adequate car insurance.
  • You were driving a school bus with at least one child passenger.

Felony DUIs are very serious, and they can result in a year or more of prison time and a permanent loss of driving privileges.

Domestic Violence Lawyer Serving Will County, IL

Domestic violence is one of the most common criminal charges people face in Illinois. There is often a lack of proof in these cases. Since most domestic disputes happen in the home, there are rarely any witnesses to corroborate what the alleged victim is claiming. The evidence may consist of little more than a scratch or bruise on one party and his or her testimony. This can result in false or mistaken arrests. Victims are sometimes arrested after defending themselves because the police have no way of knowing what actually happened.

The state must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you physically assaulted or battered the alleged victim. If there is not sufficient evidence, Attorney Blatti may be able to have your case dismissed or work towards a not guilty verdict at trial.

Help With Order of Protection Violations

There are many subtle ways to violate an Order of Protection. It is common for the protected party—who is often the alleged victim in a domestic violence case—to contact the defendant first. Unfortunately, responding may be a criminal offense. Other simple actions like making a vague social media post that appears to be directed to the protected party or having a mutual friend relay a mundane message can also be considered a violation.

If you are accused of violating a restraining order, you need a lawyer. Courts take Order of Protection violations seriously, especially when there is a pending domestic violence case.
