Success Stories

Finding of Not Guilty saves client from minimum 3 Year Sentence!

Mr. D. was driving through Chicago to pick up his girlfriend when he was stopped at a roadside safety check (also known as a DUI checkpoint or roadblock).  This quickly lead to Mr. D.’s fourth DUI case, and it was quickly upgraded to a felony by the Cook County State’s Attorney, even though Mr. D.’s last DUI conviction occurred over 20 years earlier.  A fourth DUI is a non-probationable offense, with a mandatory minimum of three years.  Here is what Mr. D. had to say: “I was arrested in September 2010 for my 4th DUI. I immediately reached out to friends and family to get the best DUI lawyer. Harold Wallin came highly recommended and did not disappointment. His fees are reasonable and he answered every question I had. I was amazed at how he cross examined the Chicago police officer who arrested me and was able to point out mistakes and circumstantial evidence that the State tried to use against me. I was facing 3 years in prison for this non-probationable offense and thanks to Harold I was found not guilty.”
