Phoenix Marijuana DUI Defense Attorney
Arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Drugs?
Even if you are not truly "impaired," it is possible to be convicted
of driving under the influence (DUI) of marijuana in Arizona. If THC is
found in your blood, you could be sentenced to jail for up to six months
for a misdemeanor
DUI offense, have to pay significant fines and fees, and lose your driver's license
for up to one year. It hardly sounds fair, but this is the law.

DUI offenses in Arizona. We are experienced and knowledgeable, and we
are determined to obtain the best possible outcome for every client. If
you have been charged with driving under the influence of drugs, the Phoenix
DUI attorneys at Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C. are ready to fight for you.
How to Fight Your Marijuana DUI Charges
Our attorneys are former prosecutors who now defend people charged with
drug and alcohol-related DUI. We understand the many possible defenses
in these cases, and how to challenge the state's assertions. As in
regular DUI cases, there are a number of defense strategies that could
result in a dismissal of the charge or reduction to a non-DUI driving offense.
There are several possible defenses against marijuana DUI charges, which
- Lack of probable cause for law enforcement to stop your vehicle
- Lack of probable cause for law enforcement to continue the investigation
- Lack of admissible blood or urine tests / no clear chain of custody
- Failure of law enforcement to follow proper procedure when arresting you
- Failure of law enforcement to advise you of your Miranda rights
If a viable defense strategy exists in your case, we will find it. The
Phoenix criminal defense lawyers at Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C. have extensive
