In building your defense, our Carol Stream, Illinois, DUI lawyers begin by examining each aspect of your arrest. Was there sufficient cause to pull you over, or was the arresting officer guilty of a false traffic stop? If so, we may be able to prove an unlawful DUI arrest and get the charges dismissed. If you were falsely arrested for DUI, our attorneys will ensure that you avoid the ongoing stigma of an arrest to the extent possible.
We will also determine whether any field sobriety tests or Breathalyzer tests were administered appropriately at the scene. Our Carol Stream DWI lawyers will also investigate whether blood tests and other chemical testing was done properly. If they were not, we will seek to have the evidence suppressed. Without such proof of intoxication, it is very difficult to convict. In some cases, it is possible to show that your blood alcohol content (BAC) was not over the legal limit under Illinois DUI statutes, .08, at the time of your arrest.
The costs of a Carol Stream DUI conviction can be severe. Depending on factors such as your past record and the circumstances under which you were arrested, our lawyers may be able to pursue driver's license suspension and Carol Stream DUI rehab as an alternative to a harsher sentence.
