Mr. Buh brings over 19 years of criminal law experience to every drunk driving case he handles. He understands the severity of the criminal and administrative penalties associated with drinking and driving. Driver's license suspensions, fines, jail time, and a criminal record may have a significant impact on your life. The impact is particularly severe if you have numerous DUIs - you can face a potentially long mandatory jail term or a felony DUI charge. The attorney you retain to handle a DUI charge can affect the outcome of your criminal case.
While the State would have you believe otherwise, being charged with a DUI and being convicted of drunk driving are not the same. With an experienced drunk driving defense attorney, you may be able to avoid a DUI conviction and the strict Illinois DUI penalties.
Breathalyzer calibration: Many of the tools used by police to assess blood alcohol content (BAC) may be unreliable under certain circumstances.
DUI traffic stops: Numerous DUI stops have Fourth Amendment issues. In order to make a DUI arrest, the officer must have probable cause for the arrest. The standard field sobriety tests such as the horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN), the walk and turn, and the one leg stand offer little proof of driving while intoxicated, since numerous people cannot pass them even when sober.
If you or a member of your family has been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) in Gilberts or the surrounding areas, please contact Peter Buh, he is your Kane County DUI Attorney.
