For a DUI what needs to be put in the order for summary statutory suspension?
Hello. I am representing myself in a DUI since I cannot afford my own and do not want to use the public defender. I worked out a deal where they will let me win the motion for statutory summary suspension and I will get supervision on the DUI. My question is, can someone please help me with the language that needs to be put into the order winning the statutory summary suspension? Lastly, what do I do with the order once I have it? Do I send it to Springfield? Can I take it in person in Cook County anywhere? Thank you very much for your time.
I will be surprised if any lawyers on this website are willing to work for free and write your order for you. Perhaps...
