You Do Not Have To Accept A Conviction If You Have Been Charged With A DUI

A conviction on a driving under the influence (DUI) charge in Arizona can result in extremely severe penalties. The loss of your driver's license, the use of an ignition interlock device and even jail time are all possible for a first-time conviction. Having an experienced defense attorney representing you from the outset can help to ensure that your interests are protected.

For many people who have been arrested for their first DUI, it is their first encounter with the law. They are often unaware of their rights, and wrongly assume that they have no defense against the charges. There can be a number of defenses against a DUI charge, even if you have a blood alcohol concentration above the legal limit. At the offices of Benavidez Law Group, P.C., we represent Southern Arizona clients in all types of impaired driving cases.

Building A Compelling Defense In Drunk Driving Cases

Prosecutors rely on evidence from a number of different sources in the process of building a case against you for a drunk driving offense. Results of field sobriety, blood and breath tests, and evidence from the initial stop can all contribute to the prosecution's case. We know how to find the flaws in the evidence and use them to your advantage in the process of presenting your defense.

Drug-Related DUI Cases

In addition to impairment by alcohol, you can also be arrested for driving under the influence of drugs. If you are found to be under the influence of marijuana, cocaine, oxycodone, methamphetamine or some other controlled substance, you can be charged with DUI. If you have drug paraphernalia in the car, you could face more serious charges. Though less common, it is also possible to be charged with a crime if a drug that you have been prescribed by a doctor impairs your ability to drive.
