Driving Under the Influence

 

DUI is the acronym that most states use for “Driving Under the Influence.” But what is a DUI in Arizona? 

A DUI refers to traffic violations that involve driving or operating a vehicle while affected by drugs or alcohol. DUI charges are imposed if someone is found operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) over 0.08% — which is the legal limit in Arizona.

Role of DUI Defense Attorney

 

A DUI lawyer is an attorney who devotes all or most of their practice to drunk driving, drugged driving, and intoxicated driving-related cases. DUI is a subset of criminal defense, so any qualified defense attorney could be used. However, a dedicated DUI defense attorney will know the ins and outs of intoxicated driving cases and have specific experience that may help you. 

An experienced Scottsdale DUI attorney can:

  • Investigate the charges against you
  • Scrutinize the officers’ conduct
  • Examine the circumstances of the field sobriety test and breathalyzer test
  • Develop a solid defense strategy
  • Represent you in court

At Future First Criminal Law, our experienced Scottsdale DUI attorney has a proven track record in criminal law and DUI defense strategies. Reach out today to see how we can assist you.

Frequently Asked Questions about Scottsdale DUI

 

When Does a DUI Become a Felony in Scottsdale?

Even though most DUIs in Scottsdale are classified as misdemeanors, it is possible to be charged with felony DUI.

Frequently Asked Questions about Scottsdale DUI

All DUIs will involve impairment by drugs or alcohol, but it becomes a felony when additional factors are present.

A DUI becomes a felony if:

  1. You have a suspended license
  2. You already have 2 prior DUIs in past seven years
  3. You have been found driving on the wrong side of the road
  4. You are required to have an ignition interlock device on the car but lack one
  5. You are driving with a minor under the age of 15

What Is the Cost of Scottsdale DUI Lawyer?

The total cost you can expect to be charged will usually depend on the DUI defense lawyer’s experience, how much time the case requires, the size and location of the DUI law firm, the complexity of the case, and the court you have been charged in.

As such, it is hard to quote a dollar amount that a Scottsdale DUI attorney may cost. However, it is an important factor to consider as you are speaking with potential attorneys for your case.

 

How Long Does a DUI Stay On Your Record in Scottsdale?

Under Arizona criminal law, DUI convictions typically remain on your criminal record for life. Even though you can complete your prison sentence and pay fines, you may have to deal with a permanent criminal record.

This is just one more reason that it is important to avoid driving under the influence – and to hire an experienced DUI defense attorney if you are caught doing so.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’M INNOCENT! CAN YOU GET MY CASE DISMISSED?

Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings. You can also style every aspect of this content in the module Design settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.

IF THE ALLEGED VICTIM DOES NOT WANT TO PRESS CHARGES, WILL THE CHARGES BE DROPPED?

Depending on the nature of the crime, even though a victim may withdraw from pressing charges, law enforcement (police and prosecutors) can still proceed with the charges if they choose to do so. This is very common in DUI situations and shoplifting but can happen with any crime.

WILL I HAVE TO GO TO TRIAL?

Ideally no, but it’s not always avoidable. Once your case goes to trial, your verdict will be determined; by the jury. A criminal defense attorney’s #1 goal is to resolve your case before it ever goes to trial to have the best chances of a favorable outcome. If your case does go to trial, we’ll be there to defend you.

IF I AM OFFERED A PLEA DEAL, SHOULD I TAKE IT?

Accepting a plea deal can help get a reduced charge, like having a felony reduced to a misdemeanor. That can have a massive impact on an individual trying to retain their professional license or protect their career prospects. But taking the plea deal isn’t always in your best interests — It’s the same as admitting guilt to a crime. This limits your lawyers’ ability to enforce your civil rights and get you the MOST favorable outcome possible (which could be getting your charges dropped).

DO I REALLY NEED A LAWYER IF I INTEND TO PLEAD GUILTY?

Although a lawyer can’t control whether you plead guilty or not guilty, they can provide you with the legal knowledge you need to make an informed decision. A lawyer will ensure your rights are protected, work with the courts to get you a reduced charge, a make sure you understand the process and the future implications of a guilty plea.

WHAT DOES GUILTY “BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT” MEAN?

During a trial, the prosecutor will present evidence to the court aimed to prove the defendants’ guilt. Upon assessing the evidence, if the jurors and judge are only able to draw one reasonable conclusion –that you were guilty– It is referred to as guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. There is simply no doubt of the defendants’ guilt and no other reasonable explanations based on the evidence shown.

WHAT IS THE JURY’S ROLE IN A CRIMINAL TRIAL?

The primary role of a jury is to determine innocence or guilt. They assess all evidence presented in a case, review facts, ask questions, and discuss amongst themselves until they conclude. The jurors must all come to the same conclusion; otherwise, it results in a “hung jury” and can lead to a mistrial.
