DUI (Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and/or Drugs) Attorneys in Peoria, Galesburg, Monmouth, Gulfport, Oquawka, Aledo, Macomb, Carthage and Rock Island, Illinois.
If you are arrested for DUI of alcohol and/or drugs in west-central Illinois, you will definitely need an experienced DUI lawyer. You will likely have to face the court in one of the towns where we represent people charged with DUI; Peoria, Galesburg, Monmouth, Oquawka, Aledo, Macomb, Carthage, or Rock Island, Illinois. These are the county seat towns for people arrested for DUI in Peoria, Knox, Warren, Henderson, Mercer, McDonough, Hancock and Rock Island counties. For instance, if you are arrested for DUI in or near Gulfport, Illinois, you will have to appear at the courthouse in Oquawka, Illinois, the county seat of Henderson County, which includes Gulfport.
If you have been arrested for DUI, chances are that you have already encountered a police officer who has learned the ropes of DUI arrests, collected evidence against you, and turned it over to the State’s Attorney. Now you will face a young, highly skilled, and highly motivated prosecutor whose goal is to have you found guilty and deprive you of your drivers license for a long time. Not to mention potential jail or prison time for those charged for a second or third DUI, or other circumstances too numerous to list here. This can wreck you life, your livelihood, and your freedom of movement.
Don’t let yourself be railroaded for DUI in Peoria, Galesburg, Monmouth, Oquawka, Aledo, Macomb, Carthage, Rock Island, Illinois. Retain a skilled DUI attorney to protect you.
What you need is a an experienced, skilled, and motivated criminal and DUI defense attorney like those at Gullberg & Box. We get the squad car video of your arrest and scrutinize all of the actions and field sobriety test procedures of the arresting officer with the same or higher level of skill and motivation which the officer used to arrest you for DUI. Often, we find that there was something wrong with the reason for you being stopped, that the field sobriety tests were unreliably administered, that the police officer was not adequately trained, that the alcohol breath test instrument was not properly tested, used, or is inherently unreliable, and that some or all of the evidence against you can’t be used against you in court. All of the sudden, the mountain of evidence against you starts to look like a molehill. Sometimes the case is outright dismissed before you even go to trial (See Client Comments). Sometimes, the persecutor will offer an extremely lenient resolution, like reducing your DUI to a loud muffler or broken taillight charge (See Client Comments). If your case goes to a jury, we bring in our skill and experts to show the jury that all the evidence against you is really consistent with a verdict of not guilty.
