  • Chicago Bar Association
  • Scott Anderson has successfully defended numerous matters ranging from traffic, misdemeanors and DUIs, to the most serious felonies, including property crimes, drug offenses, violent crimes and homicides.
  • Aggravated DUI
    Our client was accused of causing the death of another while driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. At trial, we successfully argued that our client’s driving was not the proximate cause of the accident which led to the death of the other person. Our client was acquitted of all felony charges.

  • Residential Burglary
    Our client was accused of burglarizing a home. The entire case depended on the strength of the identification of our client by the eyewitness. Our skillful cross examination of the eyewitness resulted in an acquittal.

  • First Offender DUI, Second Offender DUI, and Multiple DUI
    On numerous occasions, on first offender DUIs, second offender DUIs and multiple offender DUIs, I've contested either the initial stop or the arrest of the defendant by the arresting officer, resulting in motions to suppress being granted and the case being dismissed. When these findings have been challenged on appeal by the prosecution, I've prevailed there too. On numerous occasions I've contested the statutory summary suspension and prevailed. On numerous occasions, on felonies and misdemeanors, I’ve gone to trial and won. The key is finding the weakness in the prosecution’s case and exploiting it. Is it the initial stop? An unlawful search or seizure? Attacking the portable breath test or the breathalyzer result? The crime lab results? Do we need an expert, and, if so, who’s the right one? I've handled all varieties of these issues, again and again, in Cook, Lake, McHenry, and Du Page Counties. Knowledge and experience equals expertise and results.

  • Driver's License Reinstatement
    Not every DUI case will be won. After a second DUI, a conviction is entered, and driving privileges are revoked. When that happens, a revoked driver has to go to the Administrative Hearings Department of the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office for a hearing in which to request reinstatement of driving privileges. Fifteen years ago, I started doing this work to help my clients put their lives back together. Winning is fun and drives a good attorney. Helping people restore their lives is extremely gratifying and better than winning. I've handled literally hundreds of Secretary of State Hearings. I've taken on the cases where revoked drivers had been denied relief on multiple previous occasions even when they had attorneys. I’ve prevailed. My clients drive.
