In a worst-case scenario, a first-time conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs may result in jail time, prison time, probation, three-month license suspension, ignition interlock on your car, alcohol treatment or counseling, and high fines. Although DUI is usually a misdemeanor crime, it stays with you for life; a future drunk driving arrest would carry mandatory jail and other even more severe penalties. The Scottsdale first offense DUI attorneys at Rosenstein Law Group uses proven and aggressive DUI defenses to win your case or limit the penalties.
For the most favorable outcome, your DUI defense should begin within days of the arrest:
Many jurisdictions in Arizona do not allow DUI plea bargains, so we put substantial effort into finding grounds for dismissal of charges. If the charges stick, we can help you decide if pleading guilty to a first offense is in your best interests, or if you are better served by taking your case to trial and making the government prove its case against you. Don’t make this decision without the advice of a skilled first offense DUI lawyer in Scottsdale!
