2020 Holiday Guidelines Don’t Change on IL Drinking and Driving

This year has flipped every rulebook on its head. The ways that we go to work, order food, go to the grocery store, and meet up with friends have all been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Work happy hours now take place online and rideshares appear to be more dangerous than safe. One thing has stayed the same, however: you cannot drink and drive in Illinois.

These Three Traffic Violations Land You Mandatory Court Dates in IL

While there are situations where you can pay a fine online, or enter a plea without going into a courthouse, in Illinois, there are three traffic offenses that will land a person in front of a judge no matter what.

While it is never a smart idea to resist arrest or to threaten police officers, now — amidst a viral pandemic — is certainly not the time. One man in Niles, Illinois learned this the hard way.

We’ve put together a guide covering Illinois law regarding underage drinking, [...]

Chicago DUI Charges: A Prom Memory Your Teen Doesn’t Want

Prom and graduation season is upon us. Unfortunately, teen drunk driving tends to increase this time of year – as do law enforcement efforts to prevent it.

Both of these annual events are known for “booze-fueled revelry,” and while getting behind the wheel under the influence is always a dangerous decision that can lead to serious or fatal injuries (and serious legal consequences), this is far truer for inexperienced drivers.

How Do You Legally Transport Marijuana in Illinois?

Drug Crimes | Drug Possession | Marijuana

Illinois is one of the states that has legalized marijuana, both recreationally and medicinally. While this makes many Illinois residents happy, it’s important to realize that this legalization isn’t a free pass. You can’t do anything you want with marijuana anywhere you please just because you’re over 21.

In fact, there are some really strict rules about marijuana in the state, including how to transport it. If you’re caught violating these rules, then you can face criminal penalties – even [...]

How To Fight an IL Protective Order for Domestic Violence

Domestic Assault | Domestic Battery | Domestic Violence

It can be a surprise for many people when they are made aware they have an order of protection, sometimes called a restraining order, against them.
