I opened Jerald Novak & Associates with the understanding that an Illinois DUI arrest can have a significant detrimental impact on people’s lives. As a DUI defense lawyer I help people who have been arrested for driving under the influence avoid the harsh penalties associated with a DUI and get back on the road legally. If you have been arrested and charged with a DUI / DWI the attorney you hire matters. Hiring the right attorney can be the difference between being convicted and being acquitted, and losing or retaining your driving privileges.
My firm concentrates specifically on DUI cases. Many attorneys handle DUI cases as a part of a general practice. However, I concentrate on DUI defense. Because of this, I have an uncommon depth of knowledge on the subject and often know more about DUI law than most other attorneys.
I know that a drunk driving conviction can lead to the suspension or revocation of your driver’ license and even jail time. Either of these punishments can have a domino effect that can include losing your job, your source of income, your ability to support your family and your freedom. I am committed to assuring you that one mistake does not adversely affect the rest of your life.
One of my top priorities when handling your DUI case is keeping you informed. I will not take your case and then leave you in the dark. Someone at my firm is almost always available to take your call. When we cannot take a call immediately, we are committed to returning every call within 24 hours. When you call or email my office, either I or my assistants are available to answer most questions. I spend a great deal of time in court while I am at court or reinstatement hearings, you can still receive answers to your questions.
If you have been charged with a Driving Under the Influence or any other criminal offense, please contact Jerald Novak & Associates. I don’t just say I can help with your Illinois DUI defense, I prove I can help.
