How do you argue a dui charge?
ILLINOIS: How can I argue a dui charge. I was at .08 right at the legal limit but I got a dui and I think the breath test thing wasn't working right. I only had two beers over an hour. I wasn't driving bad or anything. I just got stopped for slightly speeding (41 in a 35 zone). How can I fight this. I was not drunk driving and I can't have this on my record! I also heard it can cost $10,000 for a DUI and I can't afford that!!! Please help. Thank you in advance.

There are arguments that at the time of the stop, you were below the legal limit but at the time of the test, it was rising.
It helps that you were not stopped for bad driving. Hardly speeding helps as well.
Did you perform the field sobriety tests? If yes, how do you think you did? Was it on video? Where in Illinois did this happen?
If you beat the case, you will not have to pay all the fines and classes you will be required to take.
A decent attorney would charge you in the range of $2,000 to $4,000. Be careful with attorneys that say they will charge you $500. They might just want you to enter into a plea deal. Feel free to contact me to discuss your options.
