10/10... Labeled as "Superb" AVVO Rating

Of course we cannot say enough good things about our "head honcho" Craig Rosenstein. He is an excellent lawyer, who is extremely knowledgeable in his field, and in our opinion should be anyone's number one pick for their DUI/DWI representation. However, our opinion may be just a little biased, so please don't take our word for it. Instead take a look at the evidence.

Craig Rosenstein named Top Attorney: Arizona Outstanding Young Lawyers in 2013!

In May, Phoenix Magazine selected Craig Rosenstein for the award of Top Attorneys: Arizona Outstanding Young Lawyers of 2013. This award is voted on by peers, and awarded to an attorney that has shown impressive achievements and ethical standards in their field.

Arizona DUI Arrests Fall

The 2013 data is in, and according to the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety, the total number of DUIs in Arizona dropped for the first time in decades. The Office of Highway Safety coordinates a state wide task force specifically targeting drunk drivers. As shown in the chart below, most of the offenses the task force tracked decreased from 2012.

The Liquid Ruler

One of the myths that I am determined to dispel is the idea of "perfection" in DUI blood testing. I have had far too many clients come to me and indicate that they have heard from friends, family, and shockingly even other attorneys, that because they took a blood test in their case, there is nothing that can be done to help them. This statement is 100% inaccurate.

Scottsdale Crime Lab in Trouble

The Arizona Republic reported over the weekend that the Scottsdale Crime lab is in trouble. As a DUI Lawyer who practices in Scottsdale, I have been screaming this for years. The Republic's piece focused on the Maricopa County Superior Court hearings regarding the admissibility of the blood test results that are coming out of the Scottsdale Lab. In essence, a Superior Court Judge in a felony DUI case is hearing arguments as to whether the lab work in the Scottsdale Crime Lab is so unreliable that the results should be precluded from being brought up in trial, and hence will never be heard by a jury. Despite the fact that whatever ruling that is ultimately handed down by the Superior Court Judge is not technically binding on the Scottsdale City Court Judges (where 95% of all DUI cases are heard), this ruling should shake some things up in the City Court.

WASTE MANAGEMENT OPEN WRAP-UP

Many people, both people from out of State and Phoenix and Scottsdale residents alike, had the opportunity to head to North Scottsdale and catch some great golf at the 2013 Waste Management Open. It is no secret that not only is the Open known for great weather and great golf, but also for being a great party. Because of this, police officers view it as a perfect time to conduct one of their ever-present DUI task forces, to catch "impaired" drivers. If you drove at all down Scottsdale Road at any point during that week, you no doubt saw the numerous drivers lit up and pulled over by Scottsdale Police Department. Most people do not know the rights that they do have and what tests they are required to perform, especially people who are visiting from out of town. Laws vary from state to state, and officers know that people are unaware of where the boundary is between lawful and illegal officer behavior.
