Phoenix DUI attorney.
At the firm, the legal team works aggressively to pursue the rights and freedom of their clients when in the face of any type of DUI charge, including DUI & drugs,
DUI with injury and
underage DUI. When you are driving home, and stopped at a sobriety checkpoint, several things may occur. First, the officer will ask each vehicle to stop and provide proof of driver's license. Next, the officer may ask you if you have been drinking. Despite your answer, the officer may ask you to step out of your vehicle and perform several
field sobriety tests, such as a
walk and turn test or
one leg stand test. Depending on your performance in these tests, the officer will then determine if you have been
drinking and driving, and if it constitutes an arrest.
