Help When A Felony DUI Threatens Your Future

Having a single DUI on your record is not uncommon. Most of us know someone who has been pulled over for drunk driving, but that does not make the charge any less severe. Every DUI can place a mark on your record, and the longer the list, the more severe the penalties.

If you have been charged with a felony DUI or a repeat DUI in Cook County or surrounding areas, make sure you have an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. At McSweeney Moore Law Offices, we have a record of success in serious criminal cases throughout the Chicagoland area of Illinois.

Contact our offices in the Bridgeview and Palos Heights-area to arrange a consultation and discuss your defense options today. We offer decades of experience, thoughtful strategies and effective representation in a wide range of criminal and administrative DUI issues.

Defense Options After A Felony DUI Arrest

Even if the evidence seems stacked against you, there are ways to eliminate or minimize the impact of a DUI on your life. In order for evidence to be used against you, it needs to have been lawfully gathered.

This means if a police officer did not have reason to pull you over or did not have probable cause to believe you were under the influence of alcohol or drugs, evidence could possibly be suppressed. Furthermore, if the devices or procedures used to gather evidence (i.e., Breathalyzer tests or field sobriety tests) were not properly calibrated, maintained or performed, the evidence may not be useful at all.

Experienced Legal Counsel Will Make A Difference

These are just a couple of examples of how an investigation and defense strategy executed by an experienced attorney can truly make a difference in your case. Our goal is to minimize the effect of a criminal charge or administrative proceeding (as in secretary of state matters) so you can retain your driving privileges and your freedom.

Do not give up and let yourself face hefty fines or jail time. A lawyer at our office can offer options to have your charges reduced, your case dismissed or evidence suppressed to give you a more favorable outcome. Contact our office today online or by telephone at 708-568-0474.
