Matt is top notch. You want him on your team As a medical marijuana patient facing a DUI charge that had the potential to ruin my life, I was extremely fortunate to have had Matt on my side. In our initial consultation, Matt explained that my case was not the slam dunk that I thought it should be, because under Arizona law, I had to use an affirmative defense and prove that I was NOT impaired by the marijuana in my system - guilty until proven innocent! Moreover, the judge clearly favored the prosecution, and allowed evidence that was clearly irrelevant to the case to be admitted. Nevertheless, it became clear at trial that the prosecutor was no match for Matt. Matt was far better prepared than the prosecutor was, and his cross-examination of the police officers and the state's expert witness effectively exposed the holes in the state's case. I was nervous about testifying, but Matt did a great job preparing me to take the stand, and we were ultimately able to convince the jury that I was NOT GUILTY. Matt was very honest upfront about not being able to guarantee a favorable outcome in my case, but he sure delivered one! Even though I was paying a flat fee, Matt was very generous with his time when I had questions, and always kept me posted on even minor developments in my case. Matt's services were worth every penny, and I would recommend him in the strongest possible terms to anyone facing a DUI charge.

Q. In Arizona is it legal to use a blood sample drawn 2 1/2 hours after being stopped?
A: Generally, the law does not require blood to be drawn within 2 hours. I think you are confused with particular alcohol-related DUI charges, which require the State to prove alcohol concentration within two hours. As a result, officers are supposed to draw blood within 2 hours of driving or actual physical control, but this cannot always be done and it is not necessarily illegal to draw outside of 2 hours. Even a blood draw outside two hours, an alcohol concentration (normally in the form of a range) within 2 hours can normally be done with expert testimony. It is possible there are issues with the retrograde or other issues with the blood, which you should discuss with a lawyer about.

If you already have a lawyer, you need to talk with your lawyer about this as they are on your case and will be able to provide much better information than any of us can. ... Read More
Q. I have been charged with a misdemeanor dui in Arizona I am moving out of state what can I do?
A: You will need to handle the DUI in AZ and should consult a DUI lawyer immediately. If the court was unable to serve you, then the Court likely issued a warrant for you arrest. Many lawyers offer free consultations. If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be appointed to you because DUI in Arizona carries mandatory minimum jail.
Q. what should a person do if they was arrested booked charged with a DUI and driving licence was suspended but had been
A: Based on what you wrote, the admin per se Order of Suspension likely has not been filed yet and it is not uncommon for this to take 2 weeks or more from the arrest to get filed and processed with ADOT. You also have a limited window of requesting a hearing on the suspension. You should consult a lawyer familiar with DUIs over the phone or in person as you will get better and more accurate information than messaging online. Many attorneys offer free consultations.
