IF STOPPED FOR DUI, KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!

You have the right to remain silent!

If you are being investigated or have been stopped by the police you have the right to remain silent. Arizona DUI law does not require you to answer any questions. If stopped, present the police officer with your driver’s license, proof of insurance and registration. Do not answer any other questions and do not admit to anything. You may be pressured into speaking; however, you should resist answering questions that may be used against you later in court. This is an important first step in your DUI defense. Remaining silent is your constitutional right and was established to protect you from being forced to testify against yourself.

You have the right to an attorney

If you are stopped by police, immediately request a confidential call with an attorney. Arizona DUI law gives you the right to consult with an attorney before you choose to submit to any chemical test (breath or blood) as long as it does not delay the investigation. Attorneys at the Maasen Law Firm are available 24 hours for emergency consultations.

Refuse to take any Eye or Physical Tests

You may be asked to submit to a variety of field sobriety tests or an HGN eye test. These tests are not required by Arizona DUI law and are not always accurate, which is why we suggest you decline. The results of the test are left to the discretion of the police officer who is administering the test unlike a blood or breath test which is determined by objective analysis.

FOLLOW THESE STEPS

  1. Invoke your 5th amendment right to remain silent and refuse to answer any questions.
  2. Provide a copy of your license, registration and insurance information.
  3. Refuse to do any eye or physical tests.
  4. Immediately demand a confidential phone call with an attorney.
  5. Submit to a blood/breath test after a confidential phone call with an attorney.
  6. Request that the police preserve a blood/breath test for independent testing.
  7. Demand to be immediately released for an independent test.

I want to take a moment to thank you for your firm’s handling of my case-in particular, the representation by my attorney. He went over the facts of the case, discussed questions I had regarding the outcome and presented options to consider. His follow-up was brief and handled with the same professionalism. I am truly grateful for all you did for me.

Thank you so much for everything you do for us. You are always so patient and kind and really care. I can’t even imagine how many clients you must take care of, but every time I call, I am treated as if we were your only client, and I just can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.
