Arizona is known to have some of the most strict drunk driving laws in the country. As in most other states, Arizona now includes impairment by drugs in its drunk driving statute. Under the law, the presence of any qualifying drug in your system is enough for you to be charged with a DUI. The penalties for a DUI conviction can be life-changing, and the assistance of a reliable defense lawyer can help to ensure that your rights are protected.
Scottsdale-based DUI defense attorney Craig Rosenstein has a great deal of training and knowledge concerning the chemical testing that the police use as evidence in a drug-related DUI case. He uses aggressive DUI defense methods to protect the legal rights of the accused. Even if it has been several weeks since you took a drug, it will show up in a blood test. Even a trace amount can get you arrested. Simply having a drug in your system, however, does not mean that you were impaired.
When you choose our firm, we will do everything we can to force the prosecution to prove that you were impaired and that the drug in question was the cause of the impairment.
