The attorneys at Kenny, Burns & McGill have handled thousands of criminal defenses cases from start to finish, including countless DUI cases.
If you have been charged with a DUI, a good defense lawyer will find answers to the most important questions in your case: did the police officer have reasonable suspicion to pull you over in the first place? Did they have probable cause to arrest you for a DUI offense? Did the officer read you your Miranda Rights or Implied Consent Warnings? Did they give you a breathalyzer test? Was the machine calibrated correctly? Was the breath or blood test given within two hours of the alleged offense? There are many factors at play in a DUI case and it is important to address all of them.
