Arizona is known for having some of the harshest DUI laws in the county. This is because Arizona is a no-tolerance state for DUIs, meaning a person can be arrested for driving with a blood alcohol content higher than the legal limit of 0.08 percent. Several types of DUIs exist, each taking into account your BAC and other factors, like whether driving on a suspended license at the time of the arrest.
Although most DUIs are misdemeanors, Arizona law requires that every person convicted of a DUI serve at least one day in jail. However, hiring a Phoenix DUI attorney can increase your chances of reducing that jail time to something more manageable like Continuous Alcohol Monitoring, House Arrest, or even suspending a portion of your jail sentence.
How Can We Help?
Depending on the specific facts of your case, a DUI attorney could negotiate a dismissal of your DUI charges in exchange for a reckless driving conviction, or dismissed all together. It may come as a surprise to many, but DUI is a highly specialized area of the law. Your best chance at success is to hire a top Phoenix DUI attorney who as the experience, knowledge, and skill to prepare the best defense possible.
An experienced Arizona DUI attorney will review your case for legal or factual errors, and use those errors to prepare a defense. Moreover, the DUI attorney can have your blood sample independently analyzed, look for suppression issues, review calibration records for the breath test machines, identify the right expert witnesses for your trial, and assist with any driver’s license issues you’re having with MVD.

Types of Arizona DUI Offenses
In Arizona, there are strict laws against DUIs that may result in jail time, forfeiture of your driver’s license, fees, increased insurance expenses, community service time, suspension from school and possibly ignition interlock devices (IIDs). A DUI misdemeanor/felony charge falls under one of these categories:
The severity of the each charge depends on the number of previous offenses a person has been found guilty of and whether or not they are underage. First offense DUI and underage charges usually result in less severe misdemeanor charges and administrative license suspensions. More severe felony charges involve an intoxicated driver who:
- Has two prior DUI convictions in any state in the past seven years
- Is driving without a court ordered ignition interlock device in vehicle
- Is driving with a suspended, revoked or restricted license
- Is with a passenger younger than 15 years old
