Experienced Legal Counsel When Challenging Your BAC Test
Our Pima County DUI lawyers effectively defend clients with BACs above .30 on a regular basis. Armed with our substantial knowledge about the limitations on the accuracy of breath and blood testing equipment used by law enforcement agencies, we routinely and effectively challenge the admissibility of the blood and breath test results in court.
We have successfully challenged the methods and procedures used to test blood in laboratories throughout Arizona, including obtaining an order by the trial court suppressing all blood test results in 11 felony cases.
We also successfully challenged the accuracy and reliability of Intoximeters RBT-IV®. Our victory resulted in the removal of this defective machine from all use by Arizona law enforcement officers and the suppression of test results in more than 7,000 cases. By spearheading motions to obtain the CMI Intoxilyzer 8000® manufacturer’s source code and software, we helped hundreds of defendants win suppression of test results and dismissals of their cases.
