Being arrested for DUI doesn’t mean that you’re guilty, but you’ll need serious legal help. In the Tucson area, Ariano & Associates aggressively defends clients charged with driving under the influence – DUI. Let an experienced Tucson DUI lawyer protect your legal rights and dispute the state’s case against you. If the state cannot prove its case against you beyond a reasonable doubt, you’ll avoid a DUI conviction, but you’ll need the help of an experienced Tucson DUI attorney at Ariano & Associates, PLLC. An experienced Tucson DUI lawyer can:
- Dispute the legality of the traffic stop: The U.S. Constitution and the courts have spelled out the procedures the police must follow when making a traffic stop. Except at DUI checkpoints, police officers need probable cause to stop a driver in traffic. Probable cause is defined as a valid reason for suspecting that the vehicle is in violation of the law or that the driver is committing or escaping from a crime. If you were stopped illegally, it’s possible that your DUI charge can simply be dismissed. A good Tucson DUI lawyer will aggressively protect your legal rights at every stage of the criminal justice process.
- Challenge the DUI test results: The accuracy of DUI test results depend both on the expertise of the official administering the test as well as the reliability of sobriety test materials and devices. A faulty breathalyzer device, for example, could render inaccurate results. Challenging the test results is a frequently successful strategy in many DUI cases.
- Aggressively interrogate the arresting officer(s): The testimony of the arresting officers is usually a key element in a DUI prosecution. Casting doubt on that testimony can tremendously bolster a DUI defense. Ariano & Associates will aggressively interrogate law officers and other witnesses on your behalf.
