There are a lot of choices and important decisions to make when facing a DUI charge. However, you need to consider an attorney that provides incredible value, experience and knowledge on how to handle your DUI charge.

Arizona statutes take DUI charges very seriously and have some of the harshest penalties for first-time offenders in the nation. As such, these charges can be some of the most difficult to defend against. However, Attorney Arja Shah’s drunk driving defense experience can thoroughly investigate your case to devise a strong defense to get a dismissal

Some of the things Arja will question include:

  • DUI Stops: Did the officer have suspicion to stop your car? Were there signs you were impaired?
  • Field testing: Were the sobriety tests conducted by law according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration?
  • Blood/breath testing: Were there any malfunctions associated with the testing?

Mounting a victorious DUI Defense involves thoroughly understanding Arizona’s complicated DUI laws and also understanding the science involved.

Many lawyers will say that they can help you–that they will “aggressively” “fight” for your rights, but in reality they are ill prepared for Criminal Defense litigation. Arja is not one of these attorneys. In fact, a large contingent of Arja’s practice consists of taking over cases for frustrated clients who have paid thousands of dollars for little or even no real representation.

Of course, every case is different. While Arja cannot guarantee an outcome, she can guarantee a reasonable fee and expertise from years of service.
