Our Experience With DUI Cases
In Arizona, impairment in the slightest degree can result in a drunk driving or DUI charge. If your blood alcohol content is above .08, this is hard evidence of intoxication. However, an experienced attorney can still help you argue the facts and potentially fight to reduce the charges.

Avoiding Harsh Consequences And Keeping Your License
The maximum penalty for a first-time conviction of driving under the influence is six months in jail and a fine.
An aggravated DUI charge, however, comes with much more serious penalties. Plus, if the state proves you committed your DUI while your license was suspended or that you have a previous drunk driving conviction, you could face a minimum prison sentence of up to four months.
An arrest triggers automatic suspension for 90 days. You will have 15 days to request a hearing before the MVD regarding a temporary license. We will help you fight your charges in court and help you keep your license.
We handle CDL suspensions. If you have a CDL, you could lose your job if convicted of drunk driving. We can help you fight to keep your livelihood.
Possible Defenses To DUI Charges
In many cases, a police officer may have no supporting evidence other than his or her assertion that you were drunk. When you are able to undercut the state’s additional evidence, they have little to fall back on. We utilize a number of tactics to challenge the state’s evidence and how it was gathered, including asking the following questions:
- Did the police have a legal reason for the initial stop?
- If you were outside the car, can they prove who was really driving?
- Was the chemical testing method and calibration correct?
A DUI charge is not the end of the line. We will fight to knock down the evidence against you and preserve your future.
