How To Face A DUI Charge In Arizona

DUI charges in Arizona are serious matters. Our state has some of the harshest penalties for these common offenses. A first-time conviction can lead to mandatory jail time, automatic license suspension and installation of an ignition interlock device (IID) after you get your license back. The penalties for a repeat offense are even harsher.

Grand Canyon Defense provides experienced advocacy for people facing both first-time and repeat DUI offenses. The firm’s David Moore, is a former prosecutor who now puts that experience and insight to work for clients. Based in Scottsdale, he represents Arizona residents statewide as well as snowbirds, college students and vacationers who live out of state but were arrested for DUI anywhere in Arizona.

You Are Not Alone

Charges for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs are extremely common in Arizona. Though it may feel like you are alone, you are far from the only one who has faced down these charges.

Sporting events like the PGA Tour, Major League Baseball spring training games, football games and countless other gatherings create conditions that are ripe for DUI charges. So, too, are college parties and music festivals. What starts as a social night out can end in an arrest and a night spent behind bars.

Finding The Strongest Possible Grounds To Mitigate Or Avoid Harsh Consequences

Attorney Moore understands how stressful DUI charges can be. Your head may be spinning considering possible consequences such as:

  • Jail time
  • A lengthy suspension of your driver’s license
  • Drug or alcohol treatment
  • Hefty fines
  • A permanent stain on your criminal record

Using his knowledge and insight as a former prosecutor, Moore is skilled at identifying possible legal defense such as:

  • Insufficient legal grounds for the traffic stop
  • Failure to advise you of your rights
  • Violations of your constitutional rights
  • Involuntary intoxication (if your drink was spiked, for example)
  • Inaccuracy of the breathalyzer or field sobriety tests
  • Insufficient evidence that you were intoxicated

Dedicated To Helping You Move Forward

Attorney Moore is committed to helping clients in any way he can – and not just from a legal perspective. In addition to providing a strong legal defense, he can connect you with treatment resources for addictions, substance use or mental health issues if that’s something you desire.
