Want to keep these off?
Let me show you how.
Arizona DUI cases (and the category vehicular crimes) are a specialized area of law. It has been my focus for almost 20 years.
To successfully defend a person accused a lawyer must have a deep understanding of the science and law relating to each offense.
I have this. In these kinds of cases. FOR YOUR DEFENSE.
Arizona has several different types of misdemeanor DUI crimes. They can be categorized by the amount of alcohol in a person, prior convictions, or by the legality / impact of a drug in your body while driving.
The amount of alcohol in your blood or breath is not what makes a DUI a felony.

You may be wondering:
Where is “drunk driving?”
Arizona does not use the term “drunk driving.” Nor does Arizona have offenses named DWI, OWI, OWVI or DUIL. Instead, Arizona law uses DUI, Extreme DUI, Super-Extreme DUI, and Aggravated DUI.
Driving under the influence of a drug, or in some instances prior use of a drug, can be either a misdemeanor or a felony in Arizona.
A valid prescription is a legal defense in Arizona. However, that does not end the case. There is still the issue of whether the medication impaired you while driving?
Arizona law requires that government prove you “knew” or “should have” known your driver’s license was suspended at the time of the arrest.
Felony or Aggravated DUI?
17. Aggravated DUI
This category refers to crimes involving car accidents where it is alleged a person was driving impaired, driving in a reckless manner or cases where a person failed to remain at the scene of an accident.
Arizona law has several legal mechanisms to seek review of a conviction or a legal decision you believe was incorrectly decided.
