There are many different types of DUI cases. A DUI defense attorney in Phoenix, Arizona from Shah Law Firm PLLC can inform you of the penalties associated with your charge. Our legal team understands all DUI laws in Arizona and can uphold them in all legal proceedings associated with your case. We further understand that each charge needs a different defense strategy and can provide you with legal representation that ensures your legal rights are protected every step of the way.

About Basic DUI

A DUI case in Phoenix usually has two different citations (A1 & A2 charges). A person violates the A1 charge by driving or being in control of a motor vehicle while impaired. The second charge is using actual drugs or alcohol or a combination. A DUI conviction in or around Phoenix results in eight moving points on one’s driving record.

A first-offense DUI is a Class 1 misdemeanor with a minimum jail requirement of one to ten days. Fines of $250 – $2,500 plus surcharges, up to five years of probation, and license suspension may also apply.

About Extreme DUI in Phoenix

An extreme DUI in Arizona is a more serious version of a second offense DUI. This occurs when someone’s BAC is over the statutory limit of .15 (almost double the legal limit). Penalties for an extreme DUI include a minimum mandatory jail sentence of 30 days and a fine of $500 – $2,500 plus surcharges. Most individuals will also have to install and maintain a vehicle interlock device for a year before their driver’s license is fully restored.

About Super Extreme DUI

In Arizona, a super extreme DUI occurs when an individual has a blood alcohol concentration over .20. This requires an extended period of an ignition interlock device – up to 18 months – and a minimum jail sentence of 45 days. Regardless of the type of DUI you’re facing,  Arja’s has DUI defense experience, skills, and resources needed to represent you professionally in all legal proceedings.

Understanding Aggravated DUI

The most serious type of DUI in Phoenix is aggravated DUI. When it comes to this charge, you have the right to a jury trial. There are three different types of aggravated DUIs in Arizona:

  • Aggravated DUI with no driver’s license
  • Aggravated DUI with two prior convictions in the last five years
  • Aggravated DUI with a child under 15 in the vehicle

“I was totally impressed and grateful for the expertise and successful case Arja handled for me. She answered my calls immediately and saved me a lot of professional and personal heartache. Arja did a great job refuting the State’s evidence and convinced the Prosecutor that my chewing tobacco was a major issue in the case that the officer did not check.”
