Arizona has the toughest DUI laws in the country. For a first offense the State will try to put you in jail for up to six months, take away your license, make you pay thousands of dollars in fines, go through alcohol classes, and put an alcohol sensor on your car.

Do not attempt to fight the State yourself. You need a lawyer with knowledge and experience. Michael A. Burkhart can beat a DUI charge and save you thousands of dollars in fines.

There are many different ways a DUI charge can be brought in Arizona.  It can be a misdemeanor or a felony.  You could face an extreme or a super-extreme DUI.  Knowing the statutes, cases, and the science behind DUI's is crucial to your defense.

If you are arrested for DUI and you think that you might have had too much to drink: DO NOT give the police evidence by agreeing to do field sobriety tests. DO NOT admit to drinking. It is best to respectfully request the opportunity to speak with an attorney before you do anything for the police. Remember, the police are there to arrest you, not help you.

If you are facing charges for a DUI you need to call an attorney immediately.  I have found that good advice at the very early stages of a DUI can save my clients days, months, or even years of time.
