Naperville trailed only Chicago and Rockford in terms of total number of DUI arrests and maintained a significantly higher arrest rate per officer than those communities. Several DuPage County cities have DUI arrest rates well above the average in Illinois. Police and prosecutors in these areas are aggressive and experienced in arresting people on suspicion of drunk driving and seeking criminal convictions for impaired drivers.

Being arrested on suspicion of DUI is not the same as being convicted of DUI. There are many potential defenses to charges of driving under the influence of alcohol. An arrest is a serious matter, but it is not the end of the world. With the right assistance, it may be possible to have the charges against you dropped or to obtain a case dismissal or not guilty verdict.

If you have refused or failed a Breathalyzer or other sobriety test, you need to act quickly to protect your rights. After a DUI arrest, the state moves quickly to suspend your driving privileges. You need experienced DUI defense on your side as soon as possible. We can help you.
