Donald J. Ramsell is a highly regarded DUI and criminal defense attorney. His interests include Corvettes, golf, travel, the Chicago Cubs, and winning cases.

Attorney Ramsell argued Illinois v. Lidster, a DUI and roadblock case, before the United States Supreme Court. Since 1986, his law firm has defended over 15,000 drivers. He is Board Certified in DUI Defense; a Regent of the prestigious National College for DUI Defense (NCDD) and also a Sustaining Member of NCDD. Don is also a Certified Standardized Field Sobriety Test Instructor.

Donald has authored amicus briefs involving DUI and criminal issues before the Hawaii Supreme Court, the North Dakota Supreme Court, and the Illinois Supreme Court. He recently co-authored an amicus brief before the United States Supreme Court. Donald co-authored the defense brief in the Illinois Supreme Court case of People v. Elliott, involving the issue of whether a rescission of a summary suspension is retroactive.

Attorney Ramsell has presented to DUI Attorneys, Judges and Prosecutors in Arizona, New Orleans, Michigan, Wisconsin, Texas, Illinois, Nevada, Massachusetts, Missouri, Arkansas, New York, the Bahamas and nationwide through webinars at Thomson-West Publishing. He has also appeared on Oprah Winfrey, ABC’s 20/20, Nancy Grace, Hannity & Colmes, and his cases have been featured in London’s Financial Times and mentioned in over 229 newspapers worldwide.

In 2017 Donald was the only Illinois attorney named a “Super Lawyer” in the field of DUI Defense by the Thomson-Reuters media corporation, making this his eleventh nomination.

In 2015 Donald discovered that the crime lab in Illinois was using invalidated methods for testing of suspects' blood and urine, making this discovery the cover of the nationally distributed scientific journal, The Column, where scientists have decried the ISP lab for their conduct. The discovery was also featured on ABC news.

In 2013 Don was added to the National College for DUI Defense Faculty, a position he still presently holds.

In 2012, Donald Ramsell received the Martindale Hubbell AV Preeminent Rating, the highest rating available from that organization. An AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating is an outstanding achievement and demonstrates that a lawyer has earned the highest rating available for their legal ability and professional ethics.

In 2011, his chapter on Nystagmus Testing for Drugs and Alcohol was published in the national 3-volume treatise, Intoxication Test Evidence (Second Edition).

In 2010, Ramsell obtained a reversal of a conviction for a DUI client before the Illinois Supreme Court in a ground-breaking opinion involving the validity of the police test known as HGN or horizontal gaze nystagmus. Along with the new trial, Ramsell gained a decision that imposes national standards and training on police officers across Illinois, as well as a limitation on the use (and misuse) of the sobriety test itself.

In 2009, Donald’s book, “Illinois DUI Law and Practice Guidebook” was first published by West Publishing. Also, the second edition of Ramsell’s co-authored national book, “Inside the Mind: Understanding DUI Scientific Evidence” published by Aspatore Books, was released.

In that same year, Donald argued two DUI cases before the Illinois Supreme Court, and he successfully completed a course in gas chromatography. He also successfully argued that the Illinois DUI Vehicle Forfeiture statute was unconstitutional. The ruling was part of the basis for several subsequent changes in the law increasing the rights of persons from the seizing of their vehicles.

In 2008-2009, Donald was a contributing Board Member to the nationally acclaimed "DWI Journal: Law & Science" and contributed several articles to the publication. In 2011, his chapter on Nystagmus Testing for Drugs and Alcohol was published in the national 3-volume treatise, Intoxication Test Evidence.

In 2006, Donald successfully fought and obtained orders compelling the ISP Breath Testing Section to begin downloading and turning over the internal memory of the breath testing machines, which has revealed numerous errors in breath testing equipment being used across Illinois.

In 2005, Chicago Magazine© first named Donald Ramsell an “Illinois Super Lawyer”. He also became the first Illinois attorney ever to become Board Certified in the area of DUI Defense under the American Bar Association's standards, through the National College for DUI Defense.

In 2004, the Chicago Sun Times identified Mr. Ramsell as one of the top 5 DUI Defense Attorneys in the State of Illinois.

In 1999, after a two year investigation, Ramsell discovered that the Department of Public Health had failed to perform critical testing on breath testing equipment, causing test results to be suppressed across the state. Later that same year, the IDPH was forced to turn over control of the entire program to the State Police.

In 1998, Ramsell successfully proved that the Intoxilyzer 5000 (Series 6400 and 6600) breath testing instrument software had been rigged to produce false negative air blank results, causing all breath tests using that model to become inadmissible in the State of Illinois.

In 1988, Ramsell discovered that the statewide breath testing program was falsifying testing documents, again causing thousands of tests to become suspect.

In 1986, Donald J. Ramsell discovered that the statewide breath testing program was using questionable procedures in certifying breathalyzers, causing thousands of tests to become disputed, and forcing immediate changes in the program.
