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.

Legal Answers
75 Questions Answered
Q. Do I have a case
A: Regardless of whether you will be able to recover or not; your first priority should be your health. Whether you have an actionable case against Safeway depends in part on whether Safeway was at fault. You should immediately consult a personal injury attorney and many offer free consultations.
Q. If the interlock was required 10.5 years ago, do I still need to get it now if I didn't then?
A: Yes, for an alcohol DUI the interlock restriction will remain with the MVD when you reinstate your driving privileges.
Q. I requested to have my judgement set aside and have been denied, for the reason ARS 13-907(E). I need assistance.
A: You and my colleague appear to be citing an old version of the statute. The correct statute is ARS 13-905, which can be found at: https://www.azleg.gov/viewdocument/?docName=https://www.azleg.gov/ars/13/00905.htm The law has changed to be a little more favorable regarding set asides as you can see in the above link. That doesn't mean it will be granted upon another attempt and typically the judge will want you to wait a little before refiling. I recommend consulting an attorney to have a more in-depth discussion of the nature of your charge, your application, confirm everything is completed and what might be done to increase the likelihood of getting it set aside assuming you are eligible.
