  • Did police lack a reasonable suspicion to stop you?
  • Did police fail to observe any impaired driving?
  • Did police lack a reasonable suspicion to conduct field sobriety tests?
  • Did the officer improperly administer field sobriety testing?
  • Did police lack probable cause to arrest you?
  • Did the officer properly invoke admin per se to obtain your breath, blood, or urine?
  • Did the officer coerce you into submitting to a breath, blood, or urine test?
  • Did police violate your right to counsel?
  • Did the officer violate your right to speak to an attorney privately?
  • Did police violate your right to remain silent?
  • Did police violate your right to obtain an independent test?

DUI Consequences Become More Serious

Arizona’s penalties for driving under the influence are severe. A first-offense drunk driving conviction is bad enough. But perhaps the worst thing about a first-offense DUI is that it puts you at risk for the life-altering penalties that come with second offenses and third offenses. Fighting a DUI charge to avoid the consequences of a DUI conviction is more than worth it! Below is information from the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
