Alyssa A. Aliperta recently received advanced level training, from the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys, on how to use Mental Illnesses to Win DUI Alcohol and/or Drug Cases. Alyssa received training on how, unfortunately, drivers who suffer from mental illness(es) will be misdiagnosed by the arresting officer and wrongfully arrested for DUI alcohol and/or drugs. Officers are specifically trained by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that individuals with mental illness may exhibit signs and symptoms very similar to those of an individual impaired by drugs and/or alcohol. Officers are also trained that these individuals may also be experiencing coexisting conditions of mental illness with drug impairment. Because officers rarely ask a driver, during a DUI investigation, if they suffer from mental illness, it is critical for an attorney to ask each and every client this question.
The American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys has compiled information from Judges, Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutors (the Top DUI Prosecutors in each State), DUI Prosecutors, current Law Enforcement Officers, former Law Enforcement Officers, and DUI Defense Attorneys to determine exactly what skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies win the most DUI cases at trial and are also used to get DUI cases successfully resolved for the defense prior to trial.
When people need a DUI Attorney, the biggest challenge is knowing whether or not an attorney truly has the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases. Countless attorneys handle DUI cases. But, only a very small percentage have the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases.
Members of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys have received advanced level training on the strategies that win the most DUI cases at trial and are also used to get DUI cases successfully resolved for the defense prior to trial. Members of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys also have access to the resources and tools that are used to win and successfully resolve DUI cases and these are resources and tools that only a very small percentage of DUI attorneys have access to and use.

Prior to joining Ana M. Mencini & Associates, P.C., Ms. Aliperta was an associate with a Chicago-based law firm where she exclusively represented clients in criminal defense matters in Cook, DuPage, and Kane counties.
In Texas, Ms. Aliperta worked as a law clerk for the nationally recognized criminal defense firm formerly known as Goldstein, Goldstein, & Hilley where she worked on numerous state and federal cases and learned to creatively and effectively attack criminal charges and prepare for criminal trials.
Ms. Aliperta earned her J.D. at St. Mary’s University School of Law in Texas. She is also a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin where she earned a B.A. in Rhetoric and Writing and a B.S. in Public Relations.
During law school, Ms. Aliperta was a judicial intern for the United States Magistrate Judge Ronald G. Morgan and interned with the Staff Attorney’s Office of the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.

Ms. Aliperta is a native of Texas, and has recently re-located to the Chicago area. Ms. Aliperta practices criminal defense because she firmly believes that every person, regardless of their race, religion or nationality, has the right to life, liberty and happiness. Any criminal charge levied against a person, no matter how petty the offense, is an attempt by the government to deprive that person of those rights. Ms. Aliperta will fight against a sometimes-unjust system to protect those rights of all her clients.
