Background and Experience

Your most valuable tool in fighting a drunk driving case is an attorney with experience handling these cases in Illinois. I am defense attorney W. Scott Hanken, and I regularly handle standard DUI cases, as well as felony DUI and aggravated DUI cases. Some of my knowledge of the system comes from my time prosecuting these cases for Sangamon County.
Every DUI charge is a serious case, and I give my personal attention and focus to every client. Because I have fought so many drunk driving charges on behalf of my clients, I know the best approach to take on each case. I develop a personalized plan for clients based on their criminal history and the particular facts of their case.

Scott has been amazing to work with despite my unfortunate situation. He has handled my case very professionally, honestly and he has treated me with dignity and compassion. I was petrified after my DUI charge but Scott brought things to a reasonable resolution at a reasonable price. I had recommended Scott to others prior to using him myself and I will definitely continue to recommend him in the future. If Scott can help you out then you are in deep trouble. If you want the very best then just hire Scott. Thank you Scott for doing a great job!
