Arizona DUI Lawyers
When people are arrested for drinking and driving, one thing is nearly almost certain — automatic suspended license or revoked license. At Cates & Garvey Law Group, PLLC, we can defend against drunk driving charges to help get driving privileges reinstated.
The first step is to request an administrative hearing with the Motor Vehicle Department, which puts a hold on the automatic license suspension. Once the hearing is requested, we can start building a case for license reinstatement.
We do this by taking a comprehensive approach, looking at every aspect of the case from the traffic stop to the arrest and the questioning at the police station. Was there probable cause for the stop? Was the breath test administered properly? Did the officer follow proper procedure in conducting field sobriety tests? We ask these questions to expose errors that violated our clients’ rights — and we won’t let the police get away with it.
We also bring forth evidence that shows our clients are responsible citizens, and the hardship a suspended license would create. Being proactive in entering into alcohol treatment courses is one way to do this. Additionally, showing that a client has a job or a family and lives an otherwise responsible life can help convince the MVD to grant a temporary, or limited license, if not fully reinstate driving privileges.
