Arizona DUI Defenses - Retrograde


Over the past week or so on the blog, we’ve been focusing on the most common Arizona DUI defense strategies and what DUI attorneys look for when they take on an Arizona DUI case. Check back here to learn about the Arizona DUI defense strategies we’ve already covered.

A lot of people don’t think hiring an Arizona DUI attorney will help because they feel like there is no defense for them. These people believe they are victim to the system and will get the same punishments and fees whether they have an Arizona DUI attorney or not. In my experience, this is simply not the case and DUI attorneys can make sure that your case isn’t a simple “conviction” number for the State. You have rights that must be protected throughout the entire process and your case, like all other criminal cases, must be proved without reasonable doubt.

There are a number of DUI defense strategies that can work for even the most typical of cases. Today, let’s take a look at the “retrograde” DUI defense. Remember that any one of these Arizona DUI defense strategies may or may not work with your case. Meet with an Arizona DUI Attorney to review the specifics of your case and what defense strategies may apply to you.
