Extreme DUI in PhoenixIf you are facing charges for a 2nd time Extreme DUI in Phoenix, it is essential to speak with a lawyer who has a clear understanding of the complexities of DUI laws. If the Extreme DUI charge was outside of the 84 months from your first DUI conviction it is especially important to seek legal council.

There are several possible DUI defenses that can be taken to that may result in dismissal of the charges, not guilty verdicts, no jail time, or substantially reduced charges.

Possible DUI Defense

  • There wasn’t probable cause to arrest
  • You were not in actual physical control of the vehicle
  • There was no reasonable suspicion to stop
  • The Police denied you your right to counsel
  • Your BAC level was below a .08% at the time of driving
  • Your Miranda Rights were violated
  • Your blood was Illegally drawn
  • Your blood draw was contaminated
  • The police reports were Misleading
A 2nd time extreme DUI should not under any circumstances be taken lightly and I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to hire an experienced Phoenix DUI attorney to represent you.
