DUI and Criminal Defense

Whether you are accused of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or any other criminal or traffic offense, you need a dedicated, experience attorney to protect your rights and defend you in court. Attorney William Vig knows the law and understands the system from every angle. Prior to entering private practice, he served for nearly six years as an Assistant State's Attorney in Springfield, Sangamon County, Illinois, where he tried numerous felony and misdemeanor cases to juries. He spent more than three years as a felony prosecutor, where he handled a wide range of cases including murder and other violent crimes, narcotics, weapons offenses, robberies, burglaries, and other matters. Prior to that assignment, he served for two years as his office's chief DUI prosecutor and was responsible for the prosecution of over 4,000 DUI tickets during that time.

Mr. Vig now utilizes his experience to assist, advise and defend clients accused of criminal offenses, driving under the influence, and traffic violations ranging from minor to serious. He is also available to represent clients seeking to restore driving privileges after license revocation for DUI or other offenses. In these cases, it is important to understand the process and to know and protect your rights. Competent representation can be critical to a successful outcome.

Driving Under the Influence

Driving Under the Influence, or DUI, is perhaps the most common criminal offense, excluding minor traffic violations. Over 40,000 people are arrested for DUI each year in Illinois. In fact, nearly 2,000 DUI cases can be filed each year in Sangamon County alone. But a DUI charge can have a major impact on someone's life. Someone arrested for DUI may face jail time, steep fines, soaring insurance rates, and license suspension, revocation, or both.

We handle all DUI and criminal matters on a flat fee basis, with no charge for an initial consultation.
