        How Our DuPage DUI Lawyer May Defend Your Case

        Because, every drunk driving accusation is unique, we encourage anyone accused of a DUI to speak with an experienced attorney. This is necessary to fully comprehend the defensive strategy our DuPage DUI lawyer may take. Below are some of the most common defenses:
        .

        1)  DUI Arrest Pre-Trial Motions

        Prior to a DUI case going to trial, our DuPage County criminal defense lawyer will often draft and file pre-trial motions. We’ll argue that specific evidence be kept out of the trial, that certain individuals cannot testify, or that the DuPage County DUI case should be dismissed altogether.

         

        2)  ‘Not the Driver’ DUI Defense

        It’s been our experience, in many DUI cases, that a defendant accused of driving while intoxicated was not the driver of the car or the car was not being “driven” at the time of arrest.

         

        3) Alcohol Consumed After the Accident DUI Defense

        Another defense we may pursue is that alcohol was consumed after the accident. Our DUI lawyer has successfully argued that, in a few cases, alcohol was consumed after an accident occurred and not prior to the accident or during the alleged driving under the influence allegation.

         

        4)  Not Drunk DUI Defense

        DUI lawyers will also use this common defense to a DUI accusation…that the driver was not drunk.

         

        Consequently, before determining the proper DUI defense, we thoroughly investigate the case. Sutter Law Group requires an in-depth interview with the defendant as well as copies of police reports, accident reports, test results, etc. It’s the reason, we consistently protect the rights of the accused and have a superb record in defending people accused of DUI in DuPage County.

        Hence, if you are charged or arrested for a DUI in the DuPage County area, contact an experienced Illinois DUI lawyer with Sutter Law Group by calling 312-724-5600.
