This past weekend, Rosenstein Law Group was happy to kick off the holiday weekend on Saturday at Wingstock held at the Mesa Amphitheater. The event kicked off with an Easter egg hunt at 10:30 am, and at 11 am was open to the public for a fun-filled day of wings, beer, and live music.
Summer is quickly approaching and people are starting to plan their summer getaways. Whether you are jetting off to a tropical paradise or hopping a short plane ride over to California for your vacation, here is a little insider tip, FLY responsibly.
Underage DUIs, or "Baby DUIs" as they are referred to, are unique in Arizona because they are handled in part like a juvenile case and in part like an adult DUI. For instance, If you are under the age of 18 (and not too close to your 18th birthday), your case will be filed in juvenile court, likely in Mesa, Arizona, where the consequences and sentencing structure are significantly different than adult courts like Scottsdale City Court or Tempe City Court..
In a recent court case, Maricopa Judge Katherine Cooper ruled that the use of marijuana extract, a variation of the plant used to make marijuana products such as candies and lollipops, is legal. Judge Cooper's decision overruled a view held by some that the 2010 Arizona Medical Marijuana Act only allows the consumption of actual pieces of the marijuana plant.
Last week attorney Craig Rosenstein shared his legal knowledge with a group of students in a Law Office and Client Management class, taught by fellow attorney, Alexander Y. Benikov, at Arizona Summit Law School. He combined his legal background with his entrepreneurial skills and spoke on how to start, run, and grow one's own law firm, just as he did with his business, the Rosenstein Law Group.
This weekend the Rosenstein Law Group was at the Chandler Great American BBQ and Beer Festival, where BBQ smells filled that air, the San Tan beer was flowing, and award winning headliners Blues Travelers closed the event with a bang!
At the Rosenstein Law Group we understand that everyone is human and people make mistakes, such as drinking and driving. We also believe that one mistake should not ruin the rest of your life. That is why we offer a service called a set aside. A set aside is the closest thing, in Arizona, to a more common term called expungement.
St. Patty's Weekend is full of green beads, green beer, green everything! But what do you do if at the end of your night you are seeing those red and blue flashing lights?
Ever try to walk a straight line or stand on one leg after a few drinks? It is always entertaining at a party amongst friends, but could be very harmful to your case if a police officer ever asks you to perform them in a DUI investigation. The common misconception with field sobriety tests (FST's) is that if one does well on the tests, then they will be free to drive home, free of consequence. That is seldom the case, as the officer typically already has signs and symptoms of impairment if he is asking you to get out of your car and perform the tests.
As many know, a breathalyzer is a machine that police officers and prosecutors often use to measure a person's blood alcohol level (BAC), when they feel a person is driving under the influence. How a breathalyzer works is, it takes a small sample of a person's breath and estimates how much alcohol is in the sample. Then the officers and prosecutors use these results to estimate how much alcohol is in a person's blood. In the state of Arizona, the legal limit of a person 21 years and older is a BAC of 0.08%. If a person is asked to perform a breath analysis test and the machine records the person's BAC as over the legal limit, then they will be arrested and prosecuted for DUI, and the breathalyzer results could become central to the prosecution's case.
