Experienced, Steadfast Representation Against Arizona DUI Charges
If you’ve been arrested for or charged with driving under the influence (DUI), you are likely experiencing a lot of worry about the future. Will you lose your license? Will you go to jail? What will it mean if you have a conviction on your record?
These are common worries, but speaking to an attorney from Signature Law Group can reduce your stress and help you focus on solving the problem. Driving under the influence is a mistake that nearly anyone could make, and you should know that you likely have more options to resolve your charges than you realize.
Will Your License Get Suspended?
If this is your first DUI, you are facing a license suspension of 90 days. It is possible in some cases to avoid this, but you need to be found not guilty in criminal court and successfully argue your case in a separate administrative hearing before the Arizona Motor Vehicle Department. If you lose either case, your license will be suspended.
Our attorneys can represent you in both proceedings and will vigorously advocate to keep your driving privileges intact.
It Is Possible To Contest The Charges
Attorney Matthew Black is a former prosecutor who now puts that knowledge and experience to defend clients facing criminal charges. He understands that even when evidence seems irrefutable, there may be reasons to doubt. Here are just some of the defense options you may have:
- You can argue that the officer did not have a valid reason to pull you over (lack of reasonable suspicion).
- The officer did not administer tests correctly or gave unclear instructions.
- The testing equipment (breathalyzer) was in need of service and calibration and therefore gave an inaccurate result.
- You have medical issues that could have skewed both the results of field sobriety tests and a breathalyzer test.
The specific defense options you have will depend on the details of your case. Moreover, our attorneys can help you explore prosecution and sentencing alternatives if contesting the charges seems to be untenable.
