Defending Your Rights in DUI Cases

Arizona Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you or a loved one have been charged with a DUI in Arizona, understanding the legal complexities, potential consequences, and the vital role a skilled Arizona criminal defense lawyer plays in protecting your rights is essential.
There are two fronts when fighting a DUI case. The court and the DMV are separate battles, and because we are a full-service DUI law firm, we take on both. When you are arrested for a DUI, the officer will take your license and issue an admin per se, allowing you to drive for 10 days unless you request a hearing. You or your lawyer must request the hearing, but you must not delay. You only have 10 days from the ticket date to request your hearing or you automatically lose your license for 90 days and sometimes longer. Because driving is not a right, it’s a privilege, so you are bound by the laws of the DMV. On another front, your first court date is usually an arraignment, and we will also have to submit documents and request evidence at that time. It is imperative that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible to allow them the best chance to help you.

Understanding DUI in Arizona

In Arizona, a DUI occurs when a person operates a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol, drugs, or a combination of both. DUI charges can be categorized based on blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and other factors:
This pertains to driving with a BAC of 0.08% or higher for adults and 0.04% or higher for commercial drivers.
A more serious offense, this involves a BAC of 0.15% or higher.
This is the most severe misdemeanor DUI charge and applies when a person’s BAC reaches 0.20% or higher.
This is a Felony DUI, and can be charged for several reasons, such as Multiple DUI convictions, DUI with a suspended license, DUI with child endangerment, or a DUI that results in a serious injury or death.
