Concentrating In DUI Defense

At The Law Offices of Carlos H. Davalos, we understand that you have a number of choices when deciding which attorney to take your case. Some attorneys work in many fields like immigration and family law and do not concentrate in DUI cases.  Attorney Davalos does concentrate in DUI cases and has also been recognized by the NCDD, or "National College of DUI Defense," as a premier DUI defense attorney in the State of Illinois.

Don't make the mistake of going to your first court appearance for a DUI with the sole purpose of pleading guilty. Speak with an experienced DUI defense attorney first. There are defenses. Attorney Carlos H. Davalos knows these defenses. We are here to help you.

Our Law Offices vigorously defends people facing misdemeanor DUI and aggravated Felony DUI charges in the Cook, DuPage, and Will County areas. Felony DUI courtrooms in those Counties can be imposing, but we have been there.  We know those courtrooms.  Let the experience of DUI attorney Carlos H. Davalos walk in with you; our firm can explain the entire process to you down to the last detail.

Roadmap To An Acquittal

Beating a DUI case is a learned skill. In tough times, go with an experienced DUI attorney who has done it before.  When defending your DUI case, attorney Carlos Davalos will thoroughly evaluate the events leading to your arrest, relentlessly looking for a way to obtain a dismissal of the DUI charge or a possible reduction to a non-alcohol driving offense. Some of the many strategies we may be able to use in your case include:

  • Lack of reasonable suspicion for the police to stop you
  • Lack of probable cause for the police to arrest you
  • Improper sobriety checkpoint procedures
  • Faulty field sobriety test administration
  • Inadmissible breath test results
  • Failure of the police to inform you of your legal rights
  • Outright jury trial

Protecting Your Driving Privileges

A DUI arrest starts two legal proceedings in Illinois, a criminal charge and an administrative process that could lead to the loss of your driver's license. Our law offices can represent you in both matters, the civil matter being the summary suspension hearing. Alternatively, we can seek to obtain what is known as an MDDP ("monitoring device driving permit"), which will enable you to drive with the installation of a breath interlock device while the DUI case is pending.  Our offices maintains working relationships with the BAIID providers and we can thus assist you in obtaining the devices at a discount, if that is necessary.

Aggravated DUI Felony Cases


The Law Offices of Carlos H. Davalos aggressively defends people accused of felony DUI, including those accused of their second, third and fourth DUI. While the legal issues and defenses are the same as for a first-time DUI offender, the stakes are much higher. Oak Park DUI lawyer Carlos Davalos will work diligently to obtain the best possible outcome for you. We find alternatives to jail and prison sentences where others find none. We can assist in beating your case.
