Yorkville DUI/DWI Defense Attorneys
Knowledgeable Counsel from The Law Offices of David Lee
Have you or a loved one been arrested for drunk driving? If so, there is one important fact to remember that many DUI/DWI defendants forget: Even if the driver fails a blood alcohol concentration test (like a breathalyzer test), they are only suspected of drunk driving. Too many drivers assume that they have already found guilty and accept the legal ramifications—including fines, license suspension, even jail time.
If you have been charged with drunk driving, you may still have viable defense options. At The Law Offices of David Lee, our legal team has more than 16 years of combined criminal defense experience. We know what to look for in these cases and when the allegations against our clients are questionable. If you have been arrested, the time to act is now.

DUI Defense Strategies
DUI/DWI is a particularly challenging and science-dependent branch of criminal law. While new technologies and procedures are being used all the time to police drivers, law enforcement is also held to a high standard to ensure they respect the rights of citizens and properly collect and maintain evidence. When this doesn't happen, the charges against the driver can be challenged.
Possible defense strategies in DUI cases include:
- Probable cause issues: Did law enforcement have probable cause to pull you over? Or to suspect drunk driving during another type of routine traffic stop? Was there an illegal search of any kind?
- Breathalyzer issues: If a breathalyzer was used to establish your BAC, when was the last time it was serviced? Was the officer trained to use it? Does the particular model have an established history of inaccurate results?
- Evidence chain issues: If a blood or urine test was used to establish your BAC, was it properly handled in the lab? Was the initial test administered in a timely fashion?
- Other factors: Did medications or other legal substances lead to your erratic driving? Do you have a medical condition? Were there witnesses that can confirm that you weren't drinking?
If you have been charged with DUI, you know it is a serious offense with serious implications. At The Law Offices of David Lee, we understand exactly how the charges have serious ramifications and how they can impact your life and your ability to make a living in profound ways.
