Bolingbrook DUI Lawyers
Experienced DUI Attorneys Serving Will and DuPage Counties
When a person has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), it carries serious consequences, including the potential for spending time in jail. When the person is undocumented, the impact of a DUI arrest and conviction can be even more serious.
At Reyna Law Office, P.C., we understand how important a strong defense is to each DUI defendant. Attorney Mary Helen Reyna provides effective advocacy on behalf of each client, developing a strong defense based on the unique circumstances of the case. In each case, Ms. Reyna focuses on minimizing the negative consequences for her clients and their families.
DUI Convictions Have Serious Consequences
The financial consequences of a DUI begin to add up as soon as a driver is arrested. Depending upon the circumstances, a driver may have to spend significant money for bond, as well as for the towing and storage of their vehicle. In addition, the loss of the ability to use a vehicle may lead to unemployment. While a DUI arrest can be costly, it is even more so if the driver is convicted.
Each driver who is charged with DUI has unique concerns about how a conviction could affect the things that are most important to them. One driver may be primarily concerned about keeping his driving privileges so that he can keep his job in a city that is a half hour drive from where he lives. Another driver may be more concerned about whether the charges that she is facing could lead to deportation because of her immigration status. Whatever concerns a driver has, there are many terrible consequences that are possible in a DUI case, especially if it is mishandled.
Retaining a knowledgeable DUI defense attorney reduces a driver’s chance of conviction and can minimize the overall consequences for the driver.
Effective Defense Against DUI Charges
Ms. Reyna has a thorough understanding of the elements of the crime of driving under the influence of alcohol. Her experience with defending against DUI charges enables her to hone in on areas in which the state may not be able to meet its burden of proof. Some of the defenses that can be raised against DUI charges include:
- Challenging the administration of field sobriety tests, including whether the officer had the proper training to interpret the results of the tests;
- Questioning whether the traffic stop was conducted in accordance with the law, specifically analyzing whether the officer had probable cause to stop the vehicle initially; and
- Raising evidentiary challenges to testing done on blood and urine samples, as well as any breathalyzer results from the scene of the stop.
As an experienced attorney, Ms. Reyna will evaluate the pros and cons of the various options available to you and the likelihood of conviction if the case does move forward to trial, although there are no guarantees that can be made about the outcome. She has the skill and understanding to explain the potential risks to her clients so that they can make an informed decision.
