You Have a Right to Speak with an Attorney when Arrested for DUI

If you are arrested for a DUI in Arizona, you have the right to contact an attorney. In fact, under Arizona law, a person has the right to consult in private with an attorney as soon as feasible after he or she is taken into custody. It is important that you exercise this right and request to speak with an attorney as soon as possible because the attorney can provide you with legal advice regarding your specific situation, and explain to you exactly what is going to occur while you are in police custody.

Municipal Court vs. Justice Court vs. Superior Court in Arizona DUI Cases

With a DUI case in Arizona, the court where your case ends up can be just as confusing as the actual case itself. Due to the differences in charges, locations, and police agencies, your Arizona DUI case can be filed in any one of three different courts and locations: either in Superior Court, in a Justice Court, or in a Municipal Court (also commonly referred to as City Courts). These differences depend largely on the type of DUI case filed, where your Arizona DUI arrest took place, and finally which agency was responsible for the arrest.
