Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is one of the most commonly committed crimes in Arizona.

Merely being arrested for a DUI can impact your ability to drive, your future career opportunities, and so much more.

If you’ve been arrested for a first-time DUI, you need to take strong action to protect your rights. Our Gilbert DUI attorney, Ryan McPhie, is a former Deputy County Attorney who understands how prosecutors will build their case against you. With more than 1000 cases under his belt and experience at nearly every level of court, Attorney McPhie is prepared to build a strong case to protect your rights and freedom.

Standard DUI Penalties in Arizona

The information listed here refers to the most common type of DUI, when a person is impaired to the slightest degree - this includes your typical ".08 level" DUI charges. By hiring our Gilbert DUI lawyer early in the process, we can work aggressively to defend your future.

Few states take DUI cases as seriously as Arizona. The penalties are harsh, and judges will rarely “go easy” on you just because this is your first offense. Second-time offenses are treated even more harshly, especially if the first offense was in the last 7 years. A third DUI arrest will result in an Aggravated DUI charge, a felony criminal offense.

For a first-time conviction, you will face a minimum of:

  • $1,500-2,000 in fines & fees
  • 10 days in jail (possible reduction to 1 day)
  • A 90 day license suspension
  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device

These penalties can be significantly higher depending on the circumstances of your case. If you’re found to have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of at least 0.15%, you may be charged with Extreme DUI – a conviction for this offense will cost over a thousand dollars more than a regular DUI.

You’re Not Alone – But It’s Important To Act Now

The majority of first-time DUI offenders are not “career criminals” – they are everyday people who have simply made a mistake. However, the aggressive enforcement and prosecution of DUI laws makes it critical to contact an experienced Gilbert DUI defense attorney.

Our firm does not use a “one size fits all” mentality – we take the time to learn about you and your unique case, and develop a strategy designed with your goals in mind. We are always aggressive advocates for the interests of our clients, and are prepared to do the same for you.
