In Arizona, extreme DUI refers to
DUI charges involving a driver with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of
.15% or more. Under Arizona law, a driver who is convicted of an extreme
DUI offense will face increased penalties.
You need to work with a
Phoenix DUI lawyer in order to avoid a conviction and the suspension of your driver's
license. It will take aggressive representation and a tailor-made defense
strategy built specifically for your case and with your needs in mind.
As a former prosecutor, Joshua S. Davidson has knowledge of and experience
with both sides of a criminal case. This is particularly helpful when
defending clients who are facing extreme DUI charges, as Mr. Davidson
will know what strategies to use in order to show weakness in the prosecution's case.
Penalties for Extreme DUI in Arizona
If convicted of extreme DUI in Phoenix, Arizona, a driver may face the

the particular case, however):
- Minimum 30 day consecutive jail sentence
- Fines of no less than $250
- Additional fines
- Community service
- Ignition interlock device

Because extreme DUI is a more serious criminal charge, the defendant will
be given the option of a jury trial. Your attorney can discuss this with
you in order to determine whether a jury trial will be beneficial to the
outcome of your case.
Phoenix Extreme DUI Attorney
By investigating the specific circumstances of your case and evaluating
your extreme DUI charges, an experienced Phoenix DUI lawyer can make all
the difference in the outcome of your case. This includes an evaluation
of your field sobriety tests, breath test or blood test, police stop and
the arrest itself. There may have been an error in the chemical test that
was administered, and this could have led to a false reading that was
too high. Your blood alcohol concentration will play a major role in whether
you are charged with extreme DUI or face regular drunk driving charges.
But with a skilled defense lawyer to contest your breath test or blood
test results, you have a chance to avoid a conviction and serious penalties.
