Experienced Illinois Criminal Defense Attorneys Fighting Your DUI Charges

Some people think that if they fail a breathalyzer test, they could just as well plead guilty to a DUI charge. That is absolutely not true.

At the criminal defense law firm of Michael T. Norris and John W. Callahan, we know how to fight DUI charges. Chicago DUI lawyers Michael T. Norris and John W. Callahan have obtained dismissals and not-guilty verdicts in dozens of DUI cases where our client flunked the breathalyzer test. In one case, we obtained a not-guilty verdict for a client who said to the arresting officer, "I am so drunk, what do you expect from me?"

If you have refused a breath test, our work as DUI attorneys is that much easier. We have lost very few DUI cases when our client refused the breathalyzer test and there was no accident. Regardless of what you may hear, it is very difficult for the state of Illinois to prove a driver was intoxicated if the driver refused a breathalyzer test.

DUI defense lawyers Michael T. Norris and John W. Callahan are very familiar with DUI law and know what police records to subpoena so we understand the strengths and the weaknesses of the state's case against you. We will analyze the police reports to find out if the stop and field sobriety tests were legitimate. If you flunked a breathalyzer test, we will work with the one of the nation's leading breathalyzer machine experts to challenge those results.

Do not be pressured into pleading guilty! A DUI conviction can affect your driving privileges, your insurance rates, and your freedom. If you win your case, you not only clear your record, but you won't have to pay fines, attend alcohol classes, or pay high-risk insurance. We represent both adults and juveniles who are charged with drunk driving.

We Win DUI Cases Other Lawyers Said Were Impossible
