Challenging DUI Evidence in Peoria
Can you successfully fight a DUI charge?
According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, in 2002, a total of 51,649 people were arrested for DUI in Illinois. DUI is one of the most common reasons why normal, everyday people are arrested across the United States, and often times it's these individuals who have a lot to lose upon conviction such as their reputation in the community, and their reputation among their colleagues, friends and family.
Unfortunately, those who are arrested for DUI frequently plead guilty and quietly accept their punishment without even realizing that they could have fought their charges with the assistance of an experienced and aggressive Peoria DUI attorney.

DUI and DWI are criminal charges and they are not distinct from other criminal charges, they too can be fought and won when it can be proved that a DUI case lacks sufficient evidence to secure a conviction against our client.
Just a few of the ways that a DUI case can be challenged includes:
- Did law enforcement have reasonable cause for making the traffic stop?
- The breathalyzer test results can be challenged on a variety of grounds.
- Chemical test refusals can be challenged.
- Challenging the driver's performance on field sobriety tests.
- The officer's testimony can be questioned including his observation about the driver's behavior, whether the driver made statements about drinking alcohol, and much more.
- Any other relevant witness testimony such as that of a passenger or another driver nearby.
