TYPES OF DUI OFFENSES WE DEFEND:
There are many different types of DUI offenses in Arizona. They are:

- Driving with a BAC 1 over .08;
- Extreme DUI (BAC over .15);
- Super Extreme DUI (BAC over .2);

- Commercial Driver DUI;
- OUI (Boating DUI); and
- Aggravated DUI (Felony DUI).
WHAT AM I FACING IF CONVICTED OF A DUI?
The answer to that depends on the type of DUI you were charged with, amount of alcohol in your blood (BAC), and existence of prior criminal history. If convicted of a DUI there are some mandatory minimum punishments you must be aware of. This can range from 1 day in jail for a first time offense (BAC below.15) to 15 years in prison for the most serious Aggravated DUI charge.

HOW DO I FIGHT A DUI? WHAT ARE THE BEST DUI DEFENSES?
Because creativity and innovation are limitless, it’s impossible to list every possible DUI defense. No two cases are ever the same. Keen legal strategy is an art that’s built on experience and hard work. But the three main defenses to a DUI look at the constitutionality and the facts (i.e. not impaired or not the driver). This requires careful examination of the techniques used to collect a blood or breath sample. Improper techniques can cause an inflated BAC reading.
