A DUI resulting in death qualifies as a Class 2 felony in Illinois.

If you or a loved one is facing these charges, it is imperative to hire an attorney who is skilled in DUI defense and criminal law. At Ramsell & Kunowski, L.L.C., we are highly experienced in handling DUI cases resulting in death. We know how to effectively defend our clients’ rights and freedom when the stakes could not be higher.
Aggressive Aggravated DUI Defense
If you are involved in an accident that takes the life of your passenger, a pedestrian, or a person in another vehicle, and you are accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, you could face charges of aggravated DUI. In aggravated DUI cases involving one or more deaths, a conviction will almost certainly involve prison time. The typical sentence for an aggravated DUI in which one person died is 1-12 years. If there are two or more deaths, the typical sentence is 6-28 years. These sentences are not eligible for early release, and you will have to serve at least 85% of the time. Our firm understands the grave nature of these cases and fights aggressively to keep our clients out of prison.
Our attorneys offer clients proactive defense representation. We thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your case and explore every possible relevant defense strategy. With over 25 years of courtroom experience, we are skilled in challenging prosecutorial evidence and effectively raising reasonable doubt. Skilled litigators and negotiators, we have a long track record of securing case dismissals, acquittals, reduced charges and reduced sentences for our clients.
