DUI, Daley Center Courthouse
The attorneys at The Davis Law Group, P.C. regularly represent individuals charged with DUI at the Richard J. Daley Center in Chicago. All of the misdemeanor DUI arrests made within the city limits of Chicago and O’Hare Airport are prosecuted on the fourth floor of 50 W. Washington Street in Chicago. The Chicago Police Department, Illinois State Police Troopers that patrol the various expressways that extend throughout Chicago, and various University Police Officers, all make arrests for misdemeanor driving under the influence offenses that are prosecuted at the Daley Center.
Municipal Village Prosecutors do not prosecute at the Daley Center as they do at other courthouses throughout Cook County. City of Chicago Corporate Counsel will prosecute at the Daley Center, but not for DUI offenses, or any other traffic matter that rises to misdemeanor level. All misdemeanor traffic offenses are handled by the State’s Attorney’s Office.
There are specific local rules that pertain to handling Daley Center DUI cases and an experienced attorney must be familiar with these specific procedures and customs to effectively represent the client charged with a DUI offense in Chicago. Often, a motion hearing or trial is required, and our office will regularly conduct these motion hearings and trials when appropriate. If your case is not suited for trial, our lawyers may achieve successful negotiations with the prosecutors at the Daley Center. The DUI defense attorneys at The Davis Law Group, P.C. have many years of experience working with the Assistant State’s Attorneys that prosecute matters at the Daley Center.
Unlike the Suburban Districts of Cook County, the misdemeanor courtrooms located on the fourth floor of the Daley Center are only for traffic-related misdemeanor offenses. General, non-traffic misdemeanor offenses are prosecuted in the various misdemeanor branch courts located throughout Chicago. The attorneys at The Davis Law Group, P.C. have years of experience practicing in the Daley Center and are familiar with the courthouse procedures, prosecutors, judges, and Clerks of the Circuit Court.
