DUI Defense

1. NOTICE OF APPEARANCE -

The Roach Law Firm offers a diligent and aggressive approach to DUI defense that offers the best chance for a dismissal or "Not Guilty" at trial. When we file a Notice of Appearance on your behalf, the State knows that you have hired the best possible defense.

2. RULE 15 Disclosure Request -

We immediately file a demand that the State provide everything necessary to effectively evaluate and defend your case. The State must provide all police reports, witness statements, DUI forms, and Scientific Reports. It is crucial that the State immediately give us these documents, along with the scientific notes supporting any BAC results, and we demand that they do.

3. REQUEST FOR INTERVIEWS -

If deemed necessary, all witnesses will be interviewed, including the police officers involved. The interview is recorded and transcribed as necessary. It is very important to learn all the extra details that may not be in the written report. These interviews are also key to "locking down" descriptions of the event that may be necessary for pre-trial motions.

4. MOTIONS TO DISMISS OR SUPPRESS -

The following is a list of motions that may be filed in your case. Each of these motions could lead to your case getting dismissed or evidence being suppressed.

  • Reasonable Suspicion
  • Probable Cause
  • Miranda
  • Tipster
  • DUI Checkpoint
  • Due Process
  • Illegal Search and Seizure
  • Right to Counsel
  • Breath Test- all issues
  • Phlebotomy Blood Draw Issues
  • Search Warrant -all issues
  • BAC outside the two hours
  • Speedy Trial

These motions are based on the 4th, 5th, 6th and 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution, the Arizona Constitution, Criminal Rules of Court and Arizona Statutes.

5. TRIAL OR PLEA?

In your case, the Roach Law Firm will evaluate all the evidence, do all possible legal research and file any motions that may help you case. In many cases, this will lead to a dismissal of the case. If not, we will sit down together and discuss your next decision, to take the case to trial or accept a plea. There are many variables and every case is different. We will give you all possible information so that you can make the best decision for your life.

6. AT TRIAL -

Rest assured that the significant trial experience of the lawyers at the Roach Law Firm will give you the best possible trial. We will question the evidence and scientific methods used. If necessary, we will hire our own expert witnesses to come to trial and explain what the scientific tests and "field sobriety tests" really mean. Almost as important as the facts, however, is the style of presentation, which allows the jury to understand why a "Not Guilty" verdict is the appropriate one.
