Let a Former Prosecutor Fight for You You Don't Have to Face Tough Charges Alone

Challenging DUI Evidence

How can a Phoenix DUI lawyer help challenge the prosecution's evidence?

If you've been charged with a DUI, you are aware that you are facing serious consequences. When there is sufficient evidence against you for an arrest and charge for DUI, then you need experienced Phoenix DUI lawyer Joshua S. Davidson on your side to protect your rights, and fight for your defense. As a former prosecutor himself, he knows the system inside out, and will work tirelessly for your defense, and will carefully sift through the evidence against you to craft a defense that could lead to a dismissal, reduced charge or an acquittal.

There are a number of strategic ways to challenge the evidence in a DUI case. BAC evidence could be inaccurate, and the outcome of breath or blood testing can be affected by a number of different factors, depending on the type of test administered; breath tests are notoriously imprecise, and even blood tests can return incorrect results when not administered properly. Whether or not the officer had reasonable cause to suspect you were driving while impaired is also an important factor, and it is the role of a DUI defense attorney to make sure that your Constitutional rights have been preserved, and if not, to demand that the evidence is deemed inadmissible.

Challenging the Prosecutor's Evidence in Phoenix DUI Cases

Driving under the influence is based upon a person's blood alcohol concentration (BAC), which is most often determined either through a blood test or a breath test. In the case of a DUI where drug use is suspected, a urine test is usually the process. But though blood, breath and urine tests are important, a DUI charge is primarily based upon the person's perceived ability to operate a vehicle. If a person consumes any alcohol, no matter the amount, and their ability to drive is impaired, that person could be convicted of DUI.

There are many strategies that a highly trained and experienced lawyer could employ to challenge the evidence in a DUI case. As the BAC level is based upon the results of a breath or blood test, testing procedures, accuracy of specific units, or maintenance and calibration of the unit used in testing could be challenged. The equipment used to administer a breath test could be examined to determine if it was functioning properly, or if the law enforcement officer correctly administered the test. Roadside testing units are notoriously inaccurate, and subject to incorrect readings due to temperature and other factors. Larger units also fail, as can any testing equipment. Also, if it is found that the police did not actually have a valid reason to suspect you of impairment when they pulled you over, your case could be dismissed for an illegal police stop.
