Protect Your Driver’s License With A Skilled Attorney By Your Side

In most cases, simply being charged with a DUI automatically leads to the suspension of your driver’s license on the 46 th day after you were given a Warning To Motorist. When this happens, it is important to have an experienced lawyer by your side who can skillfully represent you at a court hearing.

Kane County attorney John R. Kopp not only knows how to handle DUI cases, but also has a firm understanding of the Illinois courts and how the state judicial system works. As a former prosecutor, he is also able to determine what tactics can be used against you and how to respond to them effectively. With his knowledge, he is equipped to challenge any ungrounded allegations lodged against you, and he will fight to reduce your charges.

We Can Help You Navigate The System

The length of your license suspension depends on multiple factors, including whether this DUI is your first driving offense and how you fare in measuring your blood alcohol content (BAC). Having a BAC above .08 percent can automatically lead to a six-month license suspension, and refusing to have your BAC measured altogether can increase the period to 12 months.

Although this license suspension is automatic, there are ways to challenge it, provided you act quickly and make a strong case. You may also be eligible for a restricted license that allows you to get to work, school or other important places. We at Kopp Law can help you pursue the opportunities available in your case. We can also help you reinstate your license after a DUI-related suspension.

Don’t Wait To Take Action

If your license has been suspended or if you are facing the possibility of suspension, we invite you to schedule a free consultation with us by calling 630-448-2777 or sending a message online. Please have your driving record available when you call.

We have flexible appointment hours that allow you to find a meeting time that works best for you. While you can meet with Mr. Kopp at our office in Geneva, he is also able to meet you in Chicago or the surrounding suburbs.
