The Police Are Supposed to Be Knowledgeable About Current Law

There are some officers that are very experienced and have been dealing with DUIs their entire career. They tend to know the ins and outs, but the law says that a person is entitled to consult with counsel prior to the blood, breath, or urine test. Some officers might think, “Well, they can wait until after the blood, breath or urine test and then I’ll let them talk to an attorney.” That is not supposed to be the case.

Just as we have attorneys who look into the case law and are knowledgeable about what the case law is, officers are supposed to keep up-to-date on what the latest case law is and some of them just don’t do it. They don’t have time or they just don’t want to try to remember all the different areas of the law. This is because, unlike someone like me who concentrates on DUI cases, there’s a huge area of the law out there concerning criminal cases and DUI cases.

There is case law on thefts and sex abuses cases and shoplifting and child abuse and DUI cases and officers are expected to remember all of it. Not only the statutes, the laws and on the law books but the case law on the issues as well, what you can do, what you can’t do.

It’s a lot to remember and officers may not be able to remember all of it and that can be a ripe area for challenging issues in a person’s case and possibly getting charges dismissed and possibly getting evidence suppressed so that they can’t use it against a person at trial.

“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 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.

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 Phoenix 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.
