Arizona is serious about DUI and has some of the strictest penalties in the country. Not only must you address the criminal charges in court, your license will be automatically suspended if you do not take action and request an MVD Hearing, which is separate from the DUI charge itself. All aspects of the situation must be dealt with professionally and without delay.
Your first offense, if convicted, will result in jail time (for up to six months), fines and surcharges (not including jail costs), as well as loss of your driver’s license for a minimum of 90 days. You will also be required to use an ignition interlock device for one mandatory year at a cost of $1,500. These charges are nothing to take lightly and will have lifelong consequences.
We understand that making a bad decision does not make you a bad person. Our goal is to provide you with the most comprehensive representation without judgment. We will focus on your case while you focus on your future.
