The City of Surprise has experienced tremendous growth during the last ten years. However, with the ever growing population comes increased police patrols focused on people who may be impaired to drive by alcohol or drugs, individuals engaged in the use or sale of illegal drugs or those who are committing other types of criminal offenses. People arrested and charged with DUI, misdemeanor or felony crimes in Surprise, Arizona risk serving time in jail, paying huge fines, being placed on probation or even a prison term. I have represented thousands of people in Surprise and the greater Phoenix area over the last twenty years and have obtained great results for my clients.
Surprise DUI Defense
The State of Arizona imposes the some of the harshest penalties in the country upon people who have been charged with and convicted of:
In fact, the penalties for a first offense can involve up to six months jail, five years probation, fines of $2,500 plus surcharges, a revocation of your drivers license and mandatory counseling classes.
Surprise police officers are proactive, well trained and thoroughly investigate drivers who are suspected of being impaired. Aside from observing your driving behavior and looking for violations, police will question you regarding alcohol consumption, request that you participate in field sobriety tests and ask for samples of your breath, blood or urine to determine your alcohol concentration or drug content.
Of course, an experienced DUI Defense Lawyer can be invaluable in helping you obtain the best outcome possible. While representing clients facing DUI charges, I will obtain and review police and laboratory reports, research legal issues, examine body camera videos and ensure that breath or blood tests results are accurate. Following my investigation, I will actively negotiate with the prosecutor, determine whether any basis exists to argue for the suppression of evidence and evaluate your case for trial.
