Arizona DUI Lawyer
Society's perspective on DUI (Driving Under the Influence) has changed dramatically over the past several years. DUI is no longer accepted as an unavoidable consequence of automobile travel. More and more, DUI is recognized as a completely preventative crime and, therefore, a very serious offense with severe consequences.
Mandatory jail or prison time, stiff fines, license suspension or revocation, probation or parole and increased insurance costs are some of the consequences of being convicted of DUI.
In 2002, over 80,000 individual DUI / DWI charges were filed in Arizona. However, research shows many people arrested and charged with DUI are not guilty because they haven't had too much to drink.
In many cases, police officers who are overzealous, improperly trained, or who otherwise make mistakes, incorrectly determine a driver who has been drinking is driving while under the influence. Field sobriety tests can be improperly administered and misinterpreted. Breath and blood alcohol testing equipment can malfunction or be improperly used. DUI suspects can be treated unfairly, resulting in important constitutional rights not being provided.
