Lawyers Who Take Immediate Action
When you choose us to represent you, we take immediate action and start exploring all possible defenses in your case. This quick action helps us increase your chances of success. Sometimes, a successful outcome in a case can depend on how fast legal motions and subpoenas are filed.
The prosecutor has the burden of proof and must show the court that you were driving under the influence (DUI) in the Village of Itasca or in Wood Dale. We make sure to analyze all the facts to spot weaknesses in the prosecution's case:
- Did the police have reasonable suspicion to pull you over?
- Did the police have probable cause to think you were drinking?
- Did they correctly administer the right field sobriety tests?
- Did they give the Breathalyzer test correctly?
- Was your vehicle illegally searched?
- Were your rights violated in any way?
According to the Illinois Secretary of State, the average DUI offender is 34 years old, male and caught driving between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. on a weekend. The majority of drivers are caught driving with a BAC of .16 — that's half the legal limit.
