If you are charged with drunk driving in the state of Arizona, you face serious penalties, including suspension and revocation of your driving privileges. Arizona DUI laws are among the toughest in the country, putting your future at stake. The advice of an experienced DUI attorney can go a long way in defending against these charges — potentially saving you money, avoiding the loss of driving privileges and possibly avoiding jail sentences.
At the Law Offices of Patrick Alan Moran, I have the experience to successfully limit the damage of DUI charges. Using my experience of as a criminal defense attorney since 2000, I offer comprehensive guidance throughout the course of your DUI or DWI case.
Limiting The Damage Caused By DUI
You have a lot at stake when facing an arrest for DUI. Penalties include:
- License suspension
- Jail time — 24 hours mandatory on first conviction
- Fines — minimum starting at $1,500
- Impoundment of your vehicle
- Suspension or loss of professional license or security clearance
- Probation — minimum of one-year unsupervised probation
- Mandatory substance abuse counseling
- Mandatory vehicle ignition interlock device for one year
Many steps must be taken within the first 15 days following your charges, and getting a lawyer involved as soon as possible can be an effective strategy for combating any potential penalties. My experience allows me to take steps many people are otherwise unaware of, including challenging the suspension of your license and filing for restricted driving privileges.
I conduct a detailed investigation of the circumstances of your arrest, including the testing of evidence, scene investigation, roadway conditions and the basis for the initial traffic stop. Using any information gained during my investigation, I build a smart and aggressive defense, aiming for acquittal or dismissal of charges. If dismissal is impossible, I will design strategies to minimize the penalties you face.
