DUI Attorneys in Phoenix, AZ
Arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs? We Can Help!
Every state has its own specific laws and penalties pertaining to driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI). In Arizona, these are outlined in Arizona Revised Statutes § 28-1381. Generally speaking, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or greater, or while one’s abilities are impaired by alcohol and/or drugs. This is a misdemeanor or felony offense, dependent upon the specific circumstances and whether any aggravating factors are present, such as the presence of a minor in the vehicle or prior DUI convictions.
Whether this is your first DUI offense or you are facing serious felony charges for causing an injury accident while DUI, you need an attorney to defend your rights. DUI cases are highly technical in nature, due to testing devices and procedures. Even a case involving a “failed” breath test is not hopeless as our Phoenix criminal defense attorneys at Maria Jones Law Firm will use all their experience and resources to help you fight your charges. You are not alone!
Your license and your freedom may be at risk if you’ve been arrested for DUI in Arizona. Call (602) 603-4032 for a free case evaluation to find out how we can protect you.
Understanding DUI Charges & Penalties
A person may face DUI charges in Arizona if he or she is driving or in actual physical control of a vehicle:
- While under the influence of alcohol, drugs, and/or a vapor containing a toxic substance;
- With a BAC of .08% (.04% for commercial drivers) or greater within 2 hours of operating the vehicle; or
- While with any amount of a drug defined in § 13-3401 in his or her body.
It is not a valid defense if a drug was lawfully prescribed to the driver, if it is affecting his or her ability to operate a motor vehicle.
