DUI Charges Require Proactive Representation

At the law office John M. Wilkie, Attorney at Law, attorney Wilkie has protected the rights of people in east central Illinois for over 30 years. He knows that when you have been pulled over for DUI/DWI or a traffic offense, you want to be able to speak with your attorney as soon as possible. He works hard to be available when you need him or to promptly reply to your call or email if he is busy helping another client at the time of your call.

He is also committed to providing counsel that helps you meet your specific goals; he will listen carefully so that he can tailor representation to the unique facts and circumstances of your case.

Defending You Every Step Of The Way

Mr. Wilkie handles all aspects related to an arrest for or charge of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), including arraignment and sentencing. He will conduct a thorough investigation into the facts and circumstances of your case, starting with an examination of whether or not law enforcement officers had probable cause to make the traffic stop, and whether you were properly advised of your rights before you made any statements. He will also confirm that field sobriety and blood alcohol tests were correctly administered.

In Illinois, when you have been charged with DUI, you must meet with a counselor and get an “alcohol evaluation.” Attorney Wilkie will help you complete this requirement, acting as your advocate throughout the process. He is also very familiar with the Monitoring Device Driving Permit that allows you to keep your driving privileges. He will do everything in his power to minimize the impact of an arrest or conviction on your work and personal life.

Protecting Your Rights When You Have Been Charged With A Traffic Offense

Attorney Wilkie defends individuals charged with other traffic violations, particularly foreign nationals who are seeking a visa or green card and don’t want a traffic citation to negatively affect that process. His staff is fluent in Spanish and can help make certain that, as an applicant for a visa or green card, you don’t do or say anything subsequent to receiving a traffic ticket that will jeopardize your chances of becoming an American citizen.
