Aggressive Lawyer Dedicated to Drunk Driving Defense
Make no mistake: there are serious and even severe consequences for a DUI conviction in Arizona. While traffic infractions may pass with a mere fine, DUI punishments almost always include license suspension. Depending on the severity of the charges you face, you may also be looking at prison time and mandatory use of an interlock device on your car once you get your license back.
Make sure an experienced attorney is on your side.
At the Tucson Law Offices of Stephen Paul Barnard, we understand that building the best possible criminal defense goes beyond fighting your drunk driving charges. We will also work tirelessly to minimize the potential DUI punishments. From license suspension to jail time, we will look at every angle of your case, in order to make sure you get the best possible results.
In Arizona, you are not allowed to drive with a blood alcohol content above .08. If you are convicted of driving with a BAC of 0.15 or 0.02, you will receive and automatic mandatory jail sentence.
There are a number of potential DUI punishments and the more severe the charge you face, the greater the potential consequences. In addition to heavy fines, you could face jail time, especially if you have previous DUI charges or you have been charged with a felony DUI.
In addition to the criminal charges, you will also face administrative concerns in front of the Arizona DMV. If you fail to take proper action, you will lose your license. The DMV can also order an interlock device to be added to your car. We will fight to help you keep your driving privileges, no matter what DUI charges you face:
- Vehicular child abuse
- DUI and negligent homicide
- Vehicular manslaughter
- Second degree murder
- Leaving the scene
- DUI aggravated assault
