Flagstaff DUI Defense Attorney

In recent years, alcohol consumption leading to DUI cases has been reaching peak levels in Flagstaff and the surrounding areas. There has also been a considerable investment from the state and counties to increase policing for drunk driving incidents.

The state of Arizona has some of the strictest alcohol-related laws and penalties for DUI charges in the nation. For this reason, if you are facing a DUI conviction, you may feel intimidated and hopeless having to go up against the Arizona legal system. Fortunately, the DUI lawyers at Glazer, Hammond, Ruben & Smets, PLLC are experienced in DUI defense and can help you optimize the outcome of your case.

Many defendants of DUI cases face extreme anxiety wondering about how the charges will impact their future. For example, as a penalty, a defendant can have charges on their criminal record, large fines, loss of their driver’s license, and even jail time. A DUI attorney from our firm can inform you of your rights, lay out the criminal defense process for you, and help you determine what your next steps are.

Arizona’s Zero-Tolerance Policy Towards Drunk Driving

Arizona has some of the most intense drunk driving laws in the United States, meaning that officers will not hesitate to arrest someone who they deem to be driving recklessly or under the influence while driving.

However, when it comes to making an arrest, Flagstaff law enforcement can sometimes make mistakes. Collecting evidence of the following mistakes is a strong way to build a defense in court:

  • Pulling you over without having probable cause. If you can prove that the police did not have a sound reason to pull you over in the first place, then you may be able to void all evidence that was collected during the traffic stop.
  • Errors from a field sobriety test. Although they are often inaccurate and results can vary based on weather and terrain, field sobriety tests are still used by law enforcement to determine whether an individual is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The findings of the field sobriety test may be faulty, in which case, they can be called into question. Additionally, proving that the test was not administered properly can also deem the field test as unreliable evidence.
  • Errors from a breathalyzer test. Breathalyzer tests are commonly used in court against DUI defendants. However, the device must be calibrated correctly in order to take accurate measurements. If the device is not calibrated correctly, then the results may be faulty and therefore not usable as evidence in court.
  • Unlawfully ‘searching and seizing’ items from your vehicle. In the case that the police went through the items in your vehicle or on your person illegally and seized drugs or other illegal items. As a result, these findings will not be able to be held against you in court.

When it comes to making things right after a DUI arrest, the DUI attorneys at Glazer, Hammond, Ruben & Smets, PLLC have got your back. By contacting one of our highly experienced lawyers, they can help review the legality of your arrest and the process, and question the validity of any evidence that was obtained against you.
