Under Arizona law, the penalties for each subsequent DUI/DWI arrest become increasingly severe. Fines significantly increase as do mandatory minimum jail sentences if convicted for a second DUI. Even if the repeat DUI involves a blood alcohol content of .08, you are facing 90 days in jail. A sentence reduction may occur by having an alcohol and/or drug evaluation and agreeing to attend treatment. Revocation of your driver's license for one year takes place in such a circumstance unless, after 45 days into the suspension, you agree to have an ignition interlock device installed in your car.
Hiring An Attorney Who Understands Arizona's DUI Laws
Especially when arrested for a subsequent DUI, you do not want to make the mistake of representing yourself. You need someone who has been there before and who can negotiate the best possible deal or, if necessary, represent you at trial. Without this representation, you may find yourself facing consequences that were totally avoidable with the right representation.
I am an experienced DUI defense attorney who has represented individuals charged with DUIs at every phase. My success in defending individuals charged with DUI comes in great part from doing this kind of work continuously in Phoenix and throughout Arizona for 20 years. It also comes from keeping updated on all the news and trends that occur in the area of DUI law. Most importantly, it comes from my determination to help my clients in whatever way I can and never hand off tasks regarding my representation as a lawyer to anyone else.
I understand every aspect of Arizona DUI law, including the consequences of refusing to submit to a Breathalyzer test or participate in a field sobriety test. I know the penalties and how the methods for mitigation of penalties work.
