If you have been charged with DUI in Cook, McHenry and Kane counties or anywhere in Northern Illinois, it is important to talk to an experienced defense lawyer as soon as possible. The consequences of a drunk driving conviction are too harsh to leave this matter to chance. You face the possibility of steep fines, driver’s license suspension, probation and even jail time.
Our lawyers have extensive experience defending clients against DUI charges in Illinois. We aggressively attack the evidence, searching for weaknesses in the prosecution’s case against our clients. Some of the elements we look at include:
- The stop: Police cannot legally pull you over based on a hunch or a guess. They must have reasonable suspicion that you have committed or are about to commit a crime.
- The field sobriety test: Our attorneys are trained in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) standards and guidelines for field sobriety tests. This advanced training gives us valuable insight when determining if police properly and fairly administered the test in a DUI arrest.
- The breath test: Was the Breathalyzer machine properly calibrated and operated by trained personnel? Mistakes by police and malfunctioning equipment can render breath test evidence inadmissible.
Our lawyers have a proven record of success helping clients avoid the harsh consequences of drunk driving convictions. We will do everything in our power to protect your rights, your driver’s license and your future.
Has your driver’s license been revoked? We can guide you through the process of getting it reinstated.
