A Review of the Admin Per se Implied Consent Affidavit

Interviewer: What is Admin Per Se/Implied Consent Affidavit and when does someone get it?

The Affidavit Is a Restatement of Arizona Law Provided to Drivers Suspected of DUI

Brian Sloan: The Admin Per Se Implied Consent Affidavit is basically a restatement of Arizona Law that is provided to people who have been suspected of DUI. So, a person who has been stopped, who was questioned, and who has been arrested under suspicion of DUI, are going to be read what is called the Admin Per Se/Implied Consent Affidavit. This is a combination of two laws: It is Arizona 281321 and 281385.

When a Driver’s License Is Obtained in Arizona, the Individual Agrees to Consent to Chemical Testing if a Police Officer Suspects Impairment

Basically, what it says is that pursuant to Arizona Law, the officer is requesting that the person consent to a blood, breath, or urine sample at the officer’s discretion.

The Police Will Obtain a Search Warrant to Compel the Driver to Submit to Chemical Testing

If the person is not inclined to agree then the officer is to then instruct the person that pursuant to Arizona Law, if they continue to refuse that their license will be suspended for one year. Additionally, the officer will contact a judge in an attempt to get a search warrant and if that is granted that they will then take the person’s blood by force if necessary.

If the Driver Agrees to the Chemical Testing, They Are Permitted to Drive for 15 Days

If a person is read the Admin Per Se/Implied Consent Affidavit and they agree to do the blood and/or breath and/or urine test as requested by the officer, then their license to drive will be or privilege to drive will be suspended for 90 days starting 15 days from the date of the service of the Admin Per Se/Implied Consent Affidavit.

If a person has an Arizona Driver’s License, they’re license would be taken away and they would be given a pink and/or yellow piece of paper which would act as a temporary license for the next 15 days.

The Driver Can Request a Hearing to Contest the Pending Suspension; at This Point It Is Best to Retain an Attorney

A person can ask for hearing. If they ask for hearing, they’re allowed to continue to drive basically until that hearing takes place. However, I do not recommend that people take upon themselves to request to hearing.

And if they are going to hire private attorney, let them take care of it because there are some pitfalls to trying and handle things yourself and trying to deal with the hearing yourself.

The biggest pitfall being that if the hearing is not handled correctly, a person may have to carry special Sr22 high risk insurance for a period of several years.

The Admin Per Se/Implied Consent Law Applies to Arizona Drivers; the Police Cannot Confiscate an Out-of-State License

If a person is suspected of DUI, is read the Admin Per Se/Implied Consent Affidavit and agrees to the breath test or blood test or urine test. The officer still has the option of taking away the person’s driver’s license if it is an Arizona license.

“I am one of only a handful of Phoenix DUI Lawyers that focuses solely on DUI Defense representation.”

I have spent my entire career focused on DUI Defense representation, having personally defended more than 4,100+ DUI clients in the past 18+ years.

If you’re looking for a divorce attorney, tax attorney, or civil attorney, then I can comfortably say: "I’m not the one for you".

Coming up with traditional, as well as outside-the-box motions and defenses for my clients, often with good results, is the hallmark of my practice.

Lawyers that say they are "aggressive", or "will fight for you", are a dime a dozen. They use these phrases because that is what they think people want to hear. The truth of the matter is, being "aggressive" rarely gets the client anywhere in these court systems. Being "aggressive" isn’t the same as being good, and is often used to put on a show for a client to hide the fact that they aren’t doing anything meaningful for the client.

The same is true for the lawyers that claim to do DUI Defense... and Criminal Cases..., and Accident cases..., and Divorces. A Jack-of-all-Trades is a master of none. By handling all different sorts of cases, they take away from their ability to truly focus on DUIs, and keep up to date on the latest changes in DUI Defense Representation.

What I offer is intelligent, quality DUI Defense, at an exceptional price.

I am one of only a handful of Arizona DUI Lawyers that focuses solely on DUI Defense representation.

I have not only taught other lawyers how to do DUI Defense Representation at statewide seminars, but I produce DUI Legal Guides used by defense lawyers across Arizona.

I am one of the most award-winning DUI Defense Lawyers in Arizona; have been recognized nationally, including in a 2022 issue of USA Today; and there are only a few lawyers in Arizona who have personally defended more DUI cases than I have. I am also one of the most reasonably-priced DUI Lawyers, as I pride myself on charging a Flat Rate only for the legal services you need, and not for the legal services you don’t.

I am also the lawyer who people call once they realize that their original lawyer screwed something up, gave them false hope or false promises, or simply just took their money and didn’t do much on the case. You would be surprised at how often this happens.

Save yourself the trouble of hiring the wrong lawyer, and hire the right DUI Defense Lawyer from the start.

Let me know if you have any questions!
