Challenge The DUI Stop In Illinois

A police officer has the right to stop someone in traffic when he or she has probable cause to investigate the possibility that the driver is committing wrongdoing. If there is no probable cause, a traffic stop related to suspicion of DUI may be considered unlawful search and seizure.

Therefore, one of the first lines of defense in a DUI case is to consider the circumstances of the traffic stop. Once you contact us at Brady & Jensen, LLP Attorneys At Law, to discuss your options for challenging the DUI stop in Illinois, we can review the facts or alleged circumstances of your case. At a free initial consultation, we will dig into questions such as these:

  • Were you allegedly weaving in and out of lanes of traffic or otherwise driving recklessly? If so, the police officer may have had probable cause to examine you for a possible drunk driving offense.
  • Did the police officer properly inform you of your right to consult with an attorney before proceeding to administer field sobriety tests? If not, then that traffic stop may have been conducted improperly. You may have the opportunity to contest your DUI charges altogether on the basis that a law enforcement officer did not honor your constitutional rights.
  • Did the results of any field sobriety tests that you submitted to demonstrate probable cause for the police officer to arrest you and take you to the police station? If not, this portion of your arrest may have been improper — and your case may be thrown out.

Please note that any information on this website does not constitute legal advice per se. It is necessary for your defense lawyer to evaluate unique situations pertaining to your drunk driving arrest before he or she can prescribe a particular defense strategy. Furthermore, your defense attorney cannot predict with absolute certainty how your defense will play out in court.

This much is fairly certain, however: the sooner you contact an attorney regarding options for challenging a DUI stop in Illinois, the more options you will have to pursue and obtain a favorable outcome in your case.
