Winnetka Law

What type of lawyer do I need to consult to file a lawsuit against a village, police dept., and hospital?
Was charged with a dui, posted bail, and released. While I was leaving through the lobby, I had a coughing fit. Told them I was fine, but they called an ambulance, physically force me in. At the hospital, told them I was fine, and refused any tests. They held me there, against my will for a couple hours. I refused to give them any contact phone numbers. Then miraculously, my daughter showed up, with her friends to pick me up. I asked who called her(her cell phone), she said the police. The only way they could have gotten that number was from the hospital. She is listed as my emergency contact.
It his highly unlikely that a lawyer would accept such a case unless you want to pay the attorney his hourly rate....
What would be the penalty that he's looking at for these DUIs?
A friend of mine was arrested for a DUI 2/14/2015 with a BAC of .24. Currently the case is still open, he should be sentenced at his next appearance. However, he was picked up on 4/9/2016 for an AGG DUI, no valid license and leaving the scene, among other charges. This is his second DUI arrest in Illinois, but he also has one DUI in Michigan which was about 10 years ago.
Your friend needs to consult an IL attorney right away. This is serious. In Colorado, for example, if someone is...

Will I be drug test during Cook county court supervision for DUI?
I received supervision for a DUI. I am about to attend my third supervision appointment with social services. The judge did not order random drops. The only conditions were that i check in monthly with social services and complete community services/alcohol classes. Is it possible I am asked to take a urine test at some point during one of my social service appointments? I only have one more after this before I can report over the phone.
There is no way to predict for certain that you will not be required to drop. Stay clean and you will not have to...
Will i be drug tested for DUI supervision?
I received 12 months of supervision for a DUI. As a part of the supervision, I have to meet with social services once a month to make sure I am doing my required counseling hours and community service hours. The judge did not order random drops or anything.
It really shouldn't matter if you will be tested or not. You are on probation. You should not use any drugs or alcohol....

How long does it take from arrest to sentencing for a DUI?
My ex-boyfriend was picked up on a DUI 2/14/2015. He was arrested by the Illinois State Police for driving erratically on the expressway. When pulled over, he admitted to the officers that he was drunk. He had glassy eyes, open alcohol in the vehicle, trouble standing and walking, etc. and his BAC was 3-4x the legal limit at .30. His last DUI that he was picked up and convicted on was 10 years ago. He has driven drunk since the 2/14/2015 arrest.
Depends if he fights the case or not, when the case is filed, etc etc etc.
