Waste Management Phoenix Open 2014

The Waste Management Phoenix Open 2014 has officially started and is in full swing!

If you are planning on going to the Waste Management Open 2014 and drinking there, make sure you take a cab there and a cab home.  There is a new driving service App called UBER, which will pick you up close to the venue so you do not have to wait in the infamous Waste Management cab line.  UBER cabs arrive very quickly so plan accordingly when ordering a car.

If you do not take a cab or UBER and still decide to have a few drinks then drive, there are a few things you should know in case you get pulled over and questioned for DUI.  No matter what question the police officer asks you, you need to reply the same way as if you are being questioned for murder or robbery.  The answer is “Officer I am not going to answer any questions or do any tests until I talk to my lawyer”.  By saying that you did not lie to the officer nor did you confess, you simply said “let me talk to my lawyer”.  In trial the officer cannot comment on your right to remain silent so the jury can only consider the evidence before them; which would be very minimal.

Put our 24/7 phone number, 602 307-0808, in your phone right now under “lawyer” just in case you get questioned for DUI or any other crime and call us.  Set up a Free Initial Consultation Here and we would love to meet with you and help you out.

Holiday DUI Enforcement Checkpoint 2013

From Thanksgiving to New Year’s, the East Valley DUI task force will be stopping thousands of drivers on the roads. Approximately, 20 percent will be arrested for DUI. If you are pulled over and asked if you have been drinking, your answer should be that you won’t answer any questions or submit to any field tests until you talk to your lawyer. You have the right to decline these tests, and there are no legal repercussions for doing this.

If you have been suspected of drunk driving, call the Law Offices of David Michael Cantor. There is an answering service available 24 hours a day, and a lawyer will call back in just 5 minutes. Keep in mind that these phone consultations are a free public service. The lawyers will assess your situation and advise you on whether or not to take the blood or breath tests.

At the trial, the police officer can’t comment on the fact that you invoked your right to remain silent and refused to take fields test. The officer can only offer his subjective view of the events such as he pulled you over, smelled alcohol, and arrested you. The jury may wonder why you were arrested if there wasn’t any hard evidence of your being drunk. The burden of proof is on the state.

For anyone out celebrating and drinking, it’s best to take a taxi or choose a designated driver even if you only had a few drinks. If you do get arrested, call the Law Offices of David Cantor at (602) 307-0808. To schedule a free case review with a lawyer, give us a call or send us an email by using our confidential web form.

Out-of-Date Marijuana DUI Laws

When Prop 203 was approved back in 2010 the DUI laws were not updated to account for the legal medical marijuana users.

Watch the Law Offices of David Michael Cantor’s Criminal Defense Attorney Michael Alarid discuss this topic with Marc Martinez of FOX 10 News:

“Out-of-Date Marijuana DUI Laws”

Today, Medical Marijuana users are at risk of DUI when driving up to a month after they have ingested marijuana.  This is because blood results will show that there is a marijuana metabolite in the users system.  This does not tell the officer if the user was impaired at the time of the DUI or days before.  Today, all that is needed to grant a DUI is any amount of metabolite in their system; active or inactive.

We receive these DUI cases all the time and are very good at defending them.  Currently we are arguing this exact case with the Arizona Supreme Court to hopefully modify the out-of-date DUI laws and alleviate driving restrictions for medical marijuana users.

See the “Victory” section for details about specific Marijuana DUI cases we have won.
