If you have been arrested or charged with a first-offense DUI, you likely have many questions. The fear of the unknown can be very overwhelming. That is why the attorneys at the Rosenstein Law Group offer free consultations for DUI arrests. We are available 24/7 to schedule a free initial consultation at 480-248-7666 or online so that we can discuss the details of your case and answer your pressing questions.
Understandably, one of the first things people want to know about a DUI arrest is a possible punishment. In short, Arizona has very harsh penalties for DUI offenses, even for first-time offenders. The first “penalty” that many people are not aware of is the loss of your driving privilege. This may occur fifteen days after your arrest—often before your first scheduled court appearance. With the short timeline, the sooner you contact an experienced DUI attorney to guide you through the process, the better.
Having a qualified DUI defense attorney to protect your rights and enable you to make an informed decision may help you avoid jail time and license suspension. But may also lessen the likelihood of long-term implications for your employment, professional licenses, housing, security clearance, and insurance rates.
Arizona has some of the harshest DUI penalties in the country, even for first-time DUI offenses. Possible consequences include:
If you have been charged with a first-offense DUI, you will be facing the above consequences if convicted, even if you have an otherwise clean driving record. It is imperative to find a DUI attorney with a track record of success to fight for you. An aggressive defense offers your best chance at a favorable outcome, such as getting evidence suppressed, keeping your driving privileges, having the DUI charge reduced to a lesser offense, or having the DUI charge dismissed altogether.
