At the Law Offices of Douglas A. Schwab, your case will be personally handled by one of the partners, not shuffled around from new associate to legal assistant. When defending serious Arizona criminal charges, communication with your attorney is critical. When a client calls the firm with a question or concern, their actual attorney calls them back...every time...not a secretary or assistant.
Arizona's tough new DUI laws have increased the mandatory penalties if convicted. The average citizen with no criminal history or history of bad driving may be facing from one to forty-five days in the county jail, thousands of dollars in fines and fees and Motor Vehicle Division consequences. In addition to the DUI criminal case, the MVD may take action against your driver's license. MVD action ranges from three to twelve month drivers license suspensions, to high risk insurance (SR-22) and twelve to eighteen months of driving with an ignition interlock device in your vehicle.
Although these strict penalties were originally intended to deter impaired driving, overzealous enforcement and prosecution too often leads to an emphasis on quantity of arrests over quality of investigations. A fair investigation into an alleged DUI offense should include a valid reason and probable cause for the traffic stop and arrest, properly administered field sobriety tests, strict adherence to the constitutional safeguards afforded to every citizen and accurate blood or breath testing by a qualified analyst.
