Illinois DUI Field Sobriety Test Defense Attorney

DuPage County Lawyer Defends DUI Clients with Failed Field Sobriety Test Results

When you live in Illinois, you can expect to be arrested and prosecuted vigorously if you are charged with driving while under the influence of some impairing substance (DUI). The State is among the leaders in strict DUI laws and enforcement. When an officer stops you on suspicion of DUI, you may be asked to submit to field sobriety tests or a blood alcohol test (BAC) as a means of police verifying your level of impairment. You can choose to take the tests, or refuse them. If you are arrested, whether you have taken or refused to take the field sobriety tests, you will need immediate and experienced DUI legal representation to protect your freedom and driving privileges. The law office of Kathryn L. Harry & Associates, P.C. has successfully defended DUI charges and challenged field society testing for clients throughout Northwest Chicago.
