DUI: Driving Under the Influence
The state of Arizona has some of the harshest penalties in the county for driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol. These penalties come from the court as well as the MVD and can include jail time, fines, mandatory addiction treatment, and the loss of your driving privileges.
If you are charged with a DUI, you will want to select an attorney that understands your case and agrees with you on the best approach. As Phoenix based DUI attorneys, we are here to help you through your DUI case. While it is tempting to take the most aggressive approach and fight every technical aspect of your case, this approach will often result in excessive legal fees without an improved end result.
Our approach is to make an honest evaluation of the merits of your case and recommend the appropriate course of action. If there are legitimate problems with the arrest and associated testing, then those areas should be challenged fully. However, if you used poor judgment and made legitimate mistakes, it may be best not to make your situation worse by racking-up unnecessary legal expenses.
A DUI charge initiates a legal process. Sometimes the best approach is to help guide you through that process so you can put this behind you and move on with your life as quickly and painlessly as possible.
