Attorney Representing Clients Facing Charges for Driving Under the Influence in Pima County

In Arizona, a conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs can have serious consequences, including jail time, costly fines and fees, restrictions on driving privileges, and a public criminal record. However, a DUI arrest does not have to mean that a conviction is inevitable. Defendants have the right to the services of a qualified attorney who can help them protect their rights and avoid excessive hardship.

At The Behan Law Group, P.L.L.C., we believe that anyone who has been charged with a DUI deserves a fighting chance in court. Attorney Michelle Behan will work to aggressively defend your innocence with a thorough review of the evidence and a strategy tailored to your case, and if you are convicted, she will negotiate for a fair sentence that allows you a second chance and keeps penalties to a minimum.

DUI Law in Arizona

According to the Arizona Transportation Code, DUI is defined as driving or having physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or a combination of intoxicating substances. A driver can be arrested if test results indicate that their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is above the state’s legal limit of 0.08, or if a law enforcement officer has probable cause to believe that they are intoxicated. If you are arrested for DUI for the first time, you face possible class 1 misdemeanor charges with a sentence that may include at least 10 days in jail, over $1,000 in fines and fees, temporary suspension of your driver’s license, and the required installation of a certified ignition interlock device in your vehicle for a year.

An attorney can help you fight these charges with a number of defense strategies depending on the circumstances of your case. For example, your attorney may be able to demonstrate that the law enforcement officer lacked reasonable suspicion to pull you over or probable cause to place you under arrest, or that the officer infringed upon your constitutional rights to freedom from self-implication and unreasonable search. Your lawyer may also be able to demonstrate errors or inconsistencies in the chemical testing process used to determine your BAC. A strong defense may help you to avoid conviction altogether, or avoid some of the harsh penalties that often come with a conviction.
