A first-time DUI arrest can be a frightening shock. No doubt, you never expected to be in this situation. Whether you were, in fact, under the influence or not, you are doing the right thing by exploring this website and thinking about hiring a defense lawyer.
When you were arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in Tempe, did the police administer field sobriety tests such as a pen test or a "walk and turn" test? Those tests may have been flawed — and the evidence that the police allegedly gathered from them may be thrown out.
Did the Tempe police administer chemical tests, such as a Breathalyzer test or a blood alcohol test? If law enforcement agents did not follow legal procedures in giving you those tests, or if the technical tools used to administer the tests can be shown to be unreliable, your test results may not be held against you.
