Breathalyzer machines are not infallible ...
An experienced DUI attorney knows how to challenge the validity of a breathalyzer test and accuracy of a breathalyzer machine. You have a right to challenge breathalyzer test results and other types of test results that may be used in the DUI case against you.
You should not be pressured into admitting guilt or pleading guilty. A drunk driving or DUI conviction can limit or revoke your driving privileges, dramatically increase your car insurance rates, and put your very freedom in jeopardy. A successful result in your case may keep your driving record clean. If you are found not guilty you will avoid fines, alcohol awareness classes, and having to pay high-risk automobile insurance. Peoria lawyer Hugh Toner represents adults and juveniles who are charged with drunk driving in Central Illinois and has done so successfully the past 20 years.
If you have been arrested for DUI in the State of Illinois your driver’s license may be suspended. If this happens and you have not obtained a permit to drive, and you are caught driving, you could be charged with a felony.

Over the years, Hugh has successfully represented many drivers at Formal Hearings and Informal Hearings trying to regain their driving privileges.
