Driving Under the Influence

If you get stopped for a DUI, how does the police officer gather evidence against you for their case. First the police officer will ask you a series of questions; whether you have been drinking, how much you have been drinking and when did you start drinking. Second the police officer may ask you to take field sobriety tests. Field Sobriety Tests include but are not limited to the following; HGN, Walk & Turn, One-legged Stand and Finger to Nose. Third, PBT (portable breath test) and/or breathalyzer. Call us and we can talk to you about the issues of probable cause on the stop, contesting the validity of the field sobriety tests and breath tests.

If you are arrested for a DUI, your license will automatically go into suspension 46 days from the date of arrest. Due to this automatic suspension it is important that you talk to an attorney as soon as possible. An experienced DUI attorney can file a petition to rescind your suspension well in advance of the first court date, which may stop your drivers license from going into suspension. Call the Law Office of Christopher Bemben at (847) 292-1400 to determine whether we can stop your license from being suspended and to learn more about the New DUI Laws that took effect January 1, 2009.
