DUI Defense Lawyer for Statutory Summary Suspension
Automatic Suspension of Driving Privileges
At the law office of Pete O'Connor in DuPage County, we know what’s important to people who have been charged and arrested for DUI: avoiding DUI conviction and maintaining their rights. That’s why we do everything in our power to ensure our clients retain their driving privileges and lessen any penalties and fees they may have received for driving under the influence (DUI).
The day you are arrested for DUI is the day when your license and vehicle registration goes into automatic suspension. This is what is known as a statutory summary suspension. Our law office can represent clients for all statutory summary suspension hearings in DuPage County, including those who have been arrested for DUI in Glen Ellyn, Naperville, Wheaton, Lombard, and Carol Stream. A statutory summary suspension, in most cases, is the result of failing a field sobriety test, failing a chemical test, or refusing to submit to any type of DUI testing.
You have the option to challenge a statutory summary suspension and any resulting DUI arrest charges by requesting a judicial hearing. However, if you do nothing, your license will automatically be suspended on the 46th day from the date of the suspension notice.
