DUI Defense in Tempe: Successfully Defending Your Case

If you have been cited for driving under the influence, each Tempe DUI lawyer team member at the DMCantor will work diligently to build the best possible defense for your case. A working strategy to fight your charges is developed through analysis of facts of your case and formation of an effective defense based upon those facts, such as one of the following:

Arrest without Probable Cause

Charges can be dismissed if the officer is found to have not had probable cause for an arrest. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has set standards for field sobriety tests that must be met through proper administration of the test and other standards. When these standards are not met, charges may qualify for dismissal through “no probable cause for arrest.”

No Actual Physical Control of the Vehicle

Tempe climate is hot and simply sitting in your car requires the engine running to turn the air conditioning on. This can be a matter of survival. If you decide to sleep off alcohol in your running vehicle in a parking lot, you often must use the air conditioner but you are not in physical control of the vehicle.

Denial of Right to Counsel

If – after being detained for DUI in Tempe – you request a lawyer, the police officer must provide you with a phone as soon as reasonably possible. Cases can be dismissed when officers ignore this right.

No Reasonable Suspicion to Stop

Tempe police cannot stop you based on sex, religion, gender, age or any other possible discriminatory basis. You cannot be stopped just because you are a college student driving at night. Such a stop can be challenged in court.

Blood or Breath Testing Equipment Inaccuracy

Arizona Department of Health Services (DHS) has set rules for the maintenance of breath testing devices. Abnormalities reflected in maintenance records can indicate the device is out of calibration between set testing dates, making breath test results inadmissible in court.
