Whether you're facing a misdemeanor or a felony charge, you are probably confused and scared about your future: will you have to serve jail time? Is this a permanent conviction? Will you be fired from your job?
The best thing you can do for yourself right now is hire a criminal defense attorney who has tried and won cases like yours before. Polinske & Associates has fought and won all types of criminal cases, including cannabis trafficking, drug possession or manufacturing, assault, domestic battery, white collar crime, disorderly conduct, and violent crimes. As of this date of publishing Brian L. Polinske has conducted over 134 jury trials throughout the Metro-East area in both State and Federal Court.
We have also been providing legal defense for students of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville for over 32 years, working closely with parents, students, and the SIUE police department. We know SIUE students are pursuing a professional career and strive to keep their criminal history clean of any conviction.
As one of the top DUI defense law firms in Madison County, our record of winning DUI cases is nearly flawless. We aren't afraid of going to trial, of moving quickly to secure the release of clients from custody, or of filing motions where it's practicable. We know that not all DUIs are created equal in Illinois, and individual circumstances will determine the seriousness of a case and the range of punishments that may be handed down. Brian L. Polinske has not lost a DUI trial in his career.
Geographically Madison County is situated where both I-55 and I-70 lie. These are two main drug trafficking corridors. Consequently law enforcement targets out of state drivers with their interdiction teams. The teams are run by the DEA, Illinois State police, and other local enforcement groups. Over 85% of all their traffic stops are upon out of state drivers. Vehicles from the east and west coast, Colorado, and other states where cannabis has been legalized are targeted heavily. Mandatory prison time sentences are mandatory for those convicted of trafficking. I specialize in this field and am proud to say that I have never had a client do any prison time for cannabis trafficking. I handle most of those clients charged in Madison County with trafficking. Pretrial detention law has changed on 9/18/2023. Most persons charged wtih trafficking are released pending resolution without having to post cash bond.
It is always sad when a marriage comes to an end, but Polinske & Associates takes great care in representing our family law clients to ensure they're able to reach an agreement they can live with. We have over 65 years of combined experience representing all types of family clients, including those who need assistance with: divorce, child support, child custody, property division, spousal maintenance, modification, enforcement, mediation, guardianship, paternity, appeals, and even finalizing adoptions. Donna Polinske is the attorney who handles these cases.
Police in our area do not tolerate traffic violations of any kind, and if you are caught, you may have to deal with a wide range of penalties. Whether you were driving with a suspended license, no car insurance, were charged with a DUI, or received a ticket for speeding or reckless driving, we will aggressively challenge the ticket to help you keep your license, avoid jail time, and a possible increase in your insurance. We can attend court in lieu of our clients in most counties.
