DUI Arrest Lawyer in Chandler
Chandler law enforcement has drunk driving-specific officers. This "DUI Squad" is trained to work midnight shifts and hunt for prospective drunk drivers, generating significant revenue. Our attorneys who appear on behalf of clients charged with drunk driving see these officers continually in courtrooms.
The initial traffic stop is a significant event for a client and for our attorney representing that client. The motivation behind a driver being pulled over can have a serious impact on the outcome. DUI-focused law enforcement may rush to judgment, presuming the driver is intoxicated when pulling out of a bar parking lot or driving late at night. These officers are experienced, and you need an equally experienced attorney to review the facts of your stop and arrest to make sure that none of your rights were violated.
Chandler DUI Arrests — the Process
Following a stop by the Chandler police, a person will likely be asked to step out of the vehicle and perform field sobriety tests (also known as balancing tests). Typically, the driver will also perform an eye test and will be asked to blow into a portable breath test device (PBT) right there on the side of the road. If the Chandler police officer believes that the driver is even slightly impaired, he or she will arrest the driver and conduct a blood draw to determine the blood alcohol level.
Sobriety and chemical testing must be conducted within strict regulations. Chandler officers must be properly trained to conduct a sobriety test and take blood. If an arrest occurs, Miranda rights must be read to our clients. If not, we bring the omission to the attention of the courts. At Rosenstein Law Group, we also advise our clients on the following "do's and don'ts":
- Politely ask to speak to an attorney.
- Provide the officer with a driver's license, registration and proof of insurance when asked.
- Refuse field sobriety and eye tests without first consulting an attorney.
- Assert the right to remain silent.
- Consent to blood, breath and urine tests AFTER calling an attorney, unless it delays the investigation.
- Request preservation of test samples for independent testing.
- Demand to be released for an independent chemical test.
