Frequently Asked DUI Questions
Yes. Under specific circumstances, Illinois law allows felony, misdemeanor, or municipal ordinance violation records in Criminal and Traffic cases to be expunged or sealed. If you qualify, a judge can order your records sealed or expunged by law enforcement agencies. “Expunged” records are destroyed. “Sealed” records are closed and restricted from public access, but are not destroyed. This means employers and creditors cannot see these arrests. For a free consultation with experienced Chicago expungement attorneys, contact Gruszeczki & Smith Law at 312-253-7343 or use the form to the right.

In short, your driver’s license is automatically suspended. The length of the suspension depends on whether the driver submitted to a blood or breath alcohol test. If the driver submitted to a test and failed, his license is suspended for 6 months. If the driver refused to submit to these tests, his or her license is suspended for 12 months- assuming this is the driver’s first DUI. The suspension will take place on the 46th day after notice (usually on the date of the arrest). However, often times the accused’s rights are violated by the police. The accused can demand a statutory summary suspension hearing within 90 days. The attorneys at Gruszeczki & Smith can help. Call us at 312-253-7343 or email us by using the form to the right.
