Attorney Representing DuPage County Clients in Drunk Driving Cases

The State of Illinois is among the most aggressive in passing and enforcing laws aimed at curbing the growing number of injuries and deaths caused by motorists driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI). If you are arrested for DUI, you will need immediate and experienced legal representation.

When your life and freedom are threatened by the severe penalties of a DUI conviction, you can count on the attorneys in the law office of Kathryn L. Harry & Associates, P.C. to protect your rights. We have successfully defended clients charged with DUI and a full range of traffic violations throughout the greater Chicago area, including felonies, misdemeanors, and first-time and repeat offenses.

Defending DUI Traffic Violations in Illinois

Driving behind the wheel while under the influence, whether DUI alcohol, DUI drugs, or DUI prescription drugs, you are subject to laws and penalties in Illinois that are quite severe. When you are stopped on suspicion of DUI, the officer who stops you may state the reason for the stop, ask some questions, then ask you to step out of the car to perform a field sobriety test and a blood alcohol test (BAC). If you take the test and fail, or you decide to refuse to take a blood, alcohol, or urine test, you will find yourself arrested on DUI charges.

In your DUI arrest, you were likely unaware of your rights and obligations, your legal protections, or the appropriate course of action to take. There are many aspects of your DUI arrest and charges that can impact your case; there is a long list of factors that can be offered in your defense against DUI charges, including the:

  • Legality of the stop
  • Reliability of the field sobriety test
  • Inaccuracy and mechanical failure of the breathalyzer machine
  • Licensure and training of the breathalyzer operator
  • Inaccuracy of blood tests
  • Evidence of police dashboard and police station videotapes
  • Testimony of experts in the field
  • Road and weather driving conditions
  • Inaccuracies and inconsistencies in police statements and reports
  • Witness testimonies
  • Impact of prescribed medications
  • Impact of health and medical conditions
  • Timeline for filing the case and bringing a charge to trial

These are matters in DUI cases that our defense attorneys will investigate and utilize to your advantage.
