PHOENIX DUI LAWYER
Ariano & Associates, PLLC represents clients charged with driving under the influence (DUI) in the Phoenix area. We focus on the facts and develop an effective defense strategy. An experienced Phoenix DUI lawyer can fight to protect your rights and to challenge the state’s witnesses and evidence against you. If any aspect of the prosecution’s case is weak, a skilled DUI attorney with Ariano & Associates, PLLC can use that weakness to your advantage. Not all DUI arrests end in guilty verdicts or convictions, and our legal team will use every available legal tool to help you. In particular, an experienced Phoenix DUI lawyer can challenge:
- The legality of the traffic stop: The police must follow precise legal procedures when making a traffic stop. A police officer must have and be able to prove that he or she had probable cause for stopping a driver. This basically means that the officer had reason to suspect that the motorist was driving under the influence. Probable cause could be erratic driving or even an accident. Any arrest made after a legally questionable traffic stop may be disputed, and if the law was violated by a police officer, it is possible that your DUI charge could be reduced or dismissed.
- The arrest procedure: When you are placed in custody, a police officer is supposed to read your rights and make sure that you fully understand them. Failure to do this may or may not be grounds for the dismissal of your DUI charge; everything hinges on specific details. If excessive force was used during your arrest – or anything that could be construed as police brutality – that may also work to your advantage.
- The results of the DUI test: The legal blood alcohol content (BAC) level for driving in Arizona is 0.08 percent, and your BAC measurement is what a DUI test is supposed to determine. However, faulty testing equipment or any violations of the testing procedures could cast doubt on the accuracy of the DUI test results. Our DUI attorneys can dispute the results of DUI tests and in some cases have your DUI charge reduced or dismissed.
- The testimony of the arresting officer: Typically, the testimony of an arresting officer is a key element in a prosecutor’s DUI case. Let an experienced Phoenix DUI defense attorney represent you, and if necessary, cross-examine the arresting officer with the objective of raising doubts about the veracity of his or her testimony.
