What will an attorney do to help your case?

A criminal defense attorney will provide invaluable experience when you are facing DUI charges. When you use an attorney to help with your case, you are getting assistance from somebody who will:

  • Uncover all evidence being used to prove your DUI, including dash and body cam footage, the results of any field sobriety tests, and any other evidence law enforcement officials used to make the vehicle stop and arrest.
  • Work with the MVD to ensure you are able to continue driving so you can support yourself and your family.
  • Negotiate with every party involved to get the charges against you reduced or dismissed (if a dismissal is warranted based on the evidence).

DUI offenses are taken seriously by law enforcement

In Arizona, a person can face a DUI charge if their blood alcohol content level is .08% or higher. The legal BAC level for those operating a commercial vehicle while using their commercial driver’s license is .04%.

Even first-time DUI offenders can face serious penalties upon conviction. This includes the following:

  • Up to 10 days in jail
  • A $250 base fine
  • 90-day License suspension
  • Requirement for an ignition interlock device for one year
  • Alcohol treatment and evaluation programs

Second and subsequent offenses for DUI will result in much harsher penalties, including increased time in jail, more significant fines, and longer driver’s license suspension periods.

Additionally, the state of Arizona will charge somebody with “Extreme DUI” if their blood alcohol level is .15% or higher or “Super Extreme DUI” if their blood alcohol content is .20% or higher. Both of these charges could result in significantly increased penalties upon conviction.
