I received a DUI and it was not my first. I knew I was in serious trouble. I reached out to a relative of mine that happens to be a lawyer but does not handle DUI's. The one and only recommendation she gave me was to call Dan Hodgkinson immediately. I reached out to two other lawyers that work primarily in the far west suburbs and both said if you're in trouble in Lake County call Dan Hodgkinson. I was looking at prison time and not months but probably years.
When I met Dan for the first time my only request was to keep me out of jail. He was able to accomplish this and he also secured a settlement with the DA and the Judge that I could never have imagined.
Dan does not fill you with false hope. He is extremely knowledgeable and has the respect of the DA's and Judges.
I hope to avoid situations like this in the future but if circumstances dictate I will make one and only one call and that will be to Mr. Hodgkinson.
Mr. Hodgkinson did an amazing job, he helped my dad win his case and I am absolutely happy we chose him in my dads defense. He listened and was patient with my dad which is a huge plus for me.
I appreciated Dan's candor in terms advising me throughout the process. Although I was emotional at times he was highly professional and willing to discuss our options. The case resulted in a dismissal. I recommend Dan and would use him in the future.
