The Essential Guide



Right to Lawyer DUI

Why you have a right to counsel in DUI cases

The right to counsel is the means by which all of the constitutional rights afforded criminal defendants are protected. See generally, Maine v. Moulton, 474 U.S. 159, 168-169 (1985).

Right to a lawyer in DUI cases

In Arizona, the right to a lawyer attached as soon as feasible after they are arrested. This is guaranteed by the Arizona Constitution, Article II, Sec. 24 and by the Due Process Clause​, Article II, Sec. 4.

Rule 6.1(a), of the Arizona Rule of Criminal Procedure states in relevant part:

Right to be Represented by Counsel – A defendant shall be entitled to be represented by counsel in any criminal proceeding,…The right to be represented shall include the right to consult in private with an attorney, or the attorney’s agent, as soon as feasible after a defendant is taken into custody, at reasonable times thereafter, and sufficiently in advance of a proceeding to allow adequate preparation therefor.
