A DUI (driving under the influence) is also sometimes known as a DWI or drunk driving. Regardless of the terminology, the punishments are the same. Most DUI charges are Class A misdemeanors. This means that they are punishable by up to one year in jail and a $2,500 fine. Court costs and treatment can easily double or triple the amount of your fine. In contrast, felony DUI charges can result in a long prison sentence.
With any DUI arrest, you also face a civil case that will lead to summary suspension of your driver’s license. If you are convicted of the DUI charge, your driver’s license will be revoked.
The loss of your driver’s license, or license suspension, can have a profound effect on your life, especially in the northwest Chicago suburbs, where mass transit is not readily available. The sooner you contact our drunk driving defense lawyers, the sooner we can go to work to protect your ability to drive.

I cannot begin to describe just how helpful Thomas Glasgow and his team was. He met with me 1 day after contacting him regarding my case. He was direct and honest with his expectations from me as a client and took care of the rest. His responsiveness to all my questions was quick and diligent. I felt as though I had hired the best professional in the area. His presence is felt in every room he walks into and his results are that of a true expert in the field. Thank you for everything.
Tom was highly recommended by a personal friend (another attorney) to assist me in a civil matter. Tom took the time to get to know me and my situation, and it was very clear from the beginning that he had my best interests at heart. I felt very comfortable with his demeanor, expertise and most importantly his compassionate approach. Tom was always available when needed and instilled confidence as I dealt with a challenging situation. I highly recommend Tom for any legal needs. He is amazing attorney with a kind heart.
Couldn’t be more happier and satisfied with having Tom and Stephanie handling my case. They were very responsive whenever I needed them and they were always able to explain my options to me in the easiest possible way. Their adroitness helped me get the needed outcome in my case. You can rest assured you are in good hands with them. Mental peace was what I felt the most working with them as they showed a personal connection that is usually missing.
Glasgow & Olsson are awesome attorneys.
I was very upset about my case and doubting my current attorney when I contacted Tom and his firm. He took time out of his day to talk me off the ledge and helped me to see things in a clearer light and from my attorney’s perspective. He spoke with me nearly 25 minutes when he didn’t have to. Additionally, he called me back FIRST thing in the morning. I did not hire Glasgow & Olsson only because of Tom’s honesty integrity and advice. However, based on this experience I wouldn’t hesitate to refer someone to them. The fact that he advised me to stick with my current attorney instead of just taking my money tells you everything you need to know about him! They are trust worthy hardworking and Tom is very sharp and I could tell from even just a short conversation he had a ton of experience from the nuanced perspective he has on things. Very impressed with Tom. I expect his colleague to be just as exceptional. You get what you pay for in attorneys…but Tom backs it up. His knowledge of judges, other attorneys, the system in general is unmatched in all the conversations I’ve had with various attorneys over the years.
Thomas is worth more than his weight in Gold. Not many challenge themselves like he does to earn these accolades.
I’ve never felt unsure of the outcome of any case Tom and Stephanie have represented me in. Genuine, yet tenacious attorneys with a plethora of knowledge. They have gone above and beyond all my expectations with both traffic and family court. Don’t go with any one else but this firm!
The law office of Mr. Glasgow and his partner Stephanie Olsson went above and beyond our expectations. Their patience and knowledge is incredible. Not only were they able to help us with our situation they did it with integrity and our well being in mind above all else. From the first visit we knew we had made the best choice in legal representation. If you take your life, problem, situation or however serious it may be I highly suggest you go with their law office. They aren’t just legal representation they are caring and grounded human beings that will stop at nothing to win for you! I cannot express my gratitude enough! I am very thankful we met them and will always stick with them if any legal representation is needed!
Mr. Glasgow is one of the most professional attorneys I know. He goes above and beyond to communicate with his clients. He is very clear about what to expect from the beginning.
