I’ve been charged with my first DUI, can I get it reduced to reckless driving in Scottsdale?

by Aaron Black • June 03, 2016
DUI and the CourtsBearing in mind that Arizona has some of the harshest penalties for DUI’s in the country, even first time offenders shouldn’t be expecting any mercy as spotless records no longer help in cases like this and getting your sentence reduced to reckless driving will require an experienced DUI Defense attorney by your side. DUI convictions in Scottsdale are big money in the courts and the city of course is eager to take your money.

If you have been charged with a criminal offense such as a DUI, Extreme or Aggravated DUI, I have devoted my career to defending people accused of serious criminal offenses in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Raised in Phoenix, I attended Brophy College Preparatory and after graduating from Brophy I attended The University of Arizona where I majored in Political Science. I am licensed in both the Arizona and South Dakota Bar Exams and in the past I was employed by the Office of the Maricopa County Public Defender. During this time I honed my skills as a lawyer and became interested in focusing on both DUI and criminal defense in Arizona.

Unlike many large firms that want as many cases as possible I represent a limited number of clients at any given time which allows you to receive personalized service. Facing charges can be complicated and confusing for clients, and I work with you to help you understand what the options for your case are to produce the best outcome for your case. Having represented over one thousand clients facing DUI charges in Arizona, many of my DUI defense cases result in dismissals, not guilty verdicts, no jail time, or substantially reduced charges.
