Unlawful Police Stops in Chicago

Chicago DUI Lawyer

If a police officer stops a driver because he is "suspicious" that the driver may be DUI, he must still have "probable cause" to do so, such as the car being driven erratically or improperly changing lanes. This does not apply for roadside traffic stops or any other legitimate traffic violation. If you have been stopped and then arrested for a DUI after undergoing a Breathalyzer or other field sobriety test you should speak to a knowledgeable Chicago DUI attorney at The Toney Law Firm, LLC as soon as possible.

Speak to an Attorney Before Speaking to Police!

Anyone arrested and charged with DUI should arrange to have a legal representative present before making any statements or entering a plea before the judge. It is your legal right to have an attorney present to protect your rights and provide skilled legal counsel.

Why work with The Toney Law Firm, LLC?

  • Attorney Toney understands the complex laws concerning DUI arrests in Illinois and knows that if a driver was pulled over without probably cause the charge can be dismissed.
  • When you meet with her, she will gather all the information surrounding your stop and arrest and investigate all the testimony and evidence.
  • If it can be shown you were driving safely and broke no traffic regulations the arresting officer may have violated your rights.

Defense for Illegal Police Stops

If additional testimony by witnesses shows that the officer had no legal grounds to stop the driver, all the evidence gathered including any BAC results becomes inadmissible. Your attorney understands that every detail relating to your stop and arrest must be thoroughly reviewed as part of an effective defense strategy.

Preserving your legal rights and ensuring that none of them were violated in an attempt to make an arrest should be your attorney's primary concern. It may be necessary for your lawyer to cross-examine the arresting officer's testimony or even look into their record to find if this is something that has happened before. If you feel that you were stopped illegally you should hire an aggressive and dedicated attorney who will fight for you.

Contact a DUI Lawyer in Chicago if you have been charged with a DUI after an illegal traffic stop. Get the skilled defense necessary to get your charges dismissed.
