Time is of the essence after a DUI arrest. Even a first-time offense in Arizona may result in jail time, prison time, probation, three-month license suspension, ignition interlock on your car, alcohol treatment or counseling, and high fines. In the long run, you may face other negative consequences such as problems obtaining employment, keeping professional licenses, getting security clearance and dealing with increased insurance rates.
With aggressive defense, however, you may succeed in keeping your driving privileges, getting your charges reduced, getting evidence thrown out and even getting your case dismissed altogether. A first-time DUI arrest still offers the potential of keeping a clean record if your lawyer succeeds in getting your case dismissed or getting your charges reduced — for example, to reckless driving or some other traffic violation.
