Arizona has some of the harshest DUI penalties in the country. A DUI conviction may result in thousands of dollars in fines, driver’s license suspension, ignition interlock, loss of employment, and mandatory jail time. However, a blood or breath alcohol concentration above the legal limit does not guarantee a conviction. A skilled attorney understands how unreliable the prosecution’s “evidence” can be and knows how to properly challenge each aspect of a DUI charge.
Following an arrest for DUI, the DMV may suspend your driver’s license for 90 days or even one year. These suspensions typically occur prior to any court dates in your case. It is important to contact an attorney immediately. A good attorney can request an administrative hearing to challenge these suspensions on your behalf.
