Types of DUI Cases I Handle


At Benison Law, I tackle all types of DUI charges, ranging from child endangerment to drug-related DUIs. I also work with out-of-state clients who have been arrested for DUI while visiting Illinois.


Other types of DUI cases I handle include, but are not limited to:


  • First DUI offense
  • Second DUI offense
  • Third DUI offense
  • DUI accidents
  • Vehicular homicide
  • Marijuana-related DUI
  • Legal / illegal substance DUI arrests
  • DUI checkpoint arrests
  • Prior DUI convictions
  • Driving on a Suspended / Revoked license
  • Underage DUI


I know that these charges are very serious and can have lifelong effects on you both criminally and financially, which is why I put forth every effort to ensure that your rights are protected. If you are still wondering if you need a lawyer, let me provide you with a free consultation to evaluate your legal situation.

I will walk you through the entire DUI process, from the arrest to the decision of plea bargain vs. trial, to any post-trial relief you may need. If you are charged with DUI, it would be in your best interest to hire an Attorney as soon as possible.

You Only Have 90 Days to Contest the  Summary Suspension of your license.

Did you know that you only have ninety days to contest the automatic suspension of your driver's license after being arrested for drunk driving? When a person refuses to submit to chemical testing or submits to a test disclosing a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or more, his or her license will be suspended on the 46th day from the date of service with a notice of the suspension (also known as the law enforcement sworn report).

To contest a Summary Suspension, a Petition to rescind must be filed in the circuit court of venue within 90 days of the service of the notice of Summary Suspension. (See 625 ILCS 5/2-118.1(b)).When you work with Benison Law, you can choose to have representation at your Summary Suspension Hearing to fight to ensure that your driving privileges are fully protected.

Contact Benison Law

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence in the Northern Counties of Illinois, please do not hesitate to contact my firm. A DUI conviction not only affects your ability to drive, but it also acts as a mark on your criminal record. Criminal penalties you could face might include imprisonment, heavy fines, and community service. Fortunately, there are many lines of defense available to you.

At Benison Law, I am able to call into question the evidence being used against you. I can fight to prove inaccurate blood alcohol reading, faulty breath tests, unlawful police stops, and any other type of evidence that may be used in your case. My firm has a record of success in using these strategies to get my clients' charges reduced or outright dismissed.
