If you have been charged with DUI in Chandler, it is likely that the Chandler Police took a blood sample from you as the Chandler Police Department has officers who are Phlebotomists. This blood test will establish your blood-alcohol content.
What does this mean? It means that the prosecutors are already building evidence against you. Arizona is known for its harsh DUI punishments and Chandler City is no exception.
Beware that often times, prosecutors will approach you and ask if you want to go forward without a DUI lawyer present to help you. They will try to get you to plead guilty and accept their standard penalties, which are harsh. Their goal is to resolve the case as quickly as possible.
You have rights. Don't be afraid to ask for a copy of the police report, the blood work results, department of motor vehicle records, and anything else they might have. You have the right to know if the police made any mistakes and if this DUI is improper.
So before you plead guilty, ask for some time to discuss your case with me. We will go over any relevant documents together to determine if this DUI was ultimately appropriate. At the very least, I can help negotiate better terms for you. I look forward to working with you.
