DUI Attorney in Navajo County
Most people who are charged with DUI are not hardened criminals, and this may be the first time you have experienced an arrest and prosecution. You may feel intimidated or overwhelmed, but we want you to know that you have options. An experienced criminal defense attorney from our firm can review the circumstances of your traffic stop, the investigation and arrest, to determine the most effective way to fight the charges. Some DUI arrests occur when the police officer pulled the driver over without probable cause, which can be considered a violation of the suspect's Constitutional rights. There could be errors in the field sobriety tests, the breathalyzer test or the blood test which would render the evidence inadmissible. Each case is unique. We will work closely with you to find a way to resolve this situation quickly and effectively.
