SR-22 Insurance

Because we were able to convince the officer to file the Admin Per Se paperwork prior to a conviction my client did not have to obtain SR22 insurance. SR-22 insurance which is sometimes referred as a certificate of insurance or a financial responsibility filing is simply a high-risk insurance policy required by law if you have been convicted of a DUI/DWI in Phoenix.

Admin Per Se

The first thing you must know about DUI is that not only will you have a criminal case where you are facing time in jail, but MVD is going to try and suspend your license. The DUI charge and the MVD proceedings are completely separate and unrelated matters.
 
If you are pulled over for DUI in Arizona and suspected of being over a .08 BAC the police will serve you with a pink and yellow Admin Per Se / Implied Consent Affidavit.
 
The Admin Per Se / Implied Consent hearing often occurs months before your DUI trial. At the hearing, the arresting police officer must appear and it will be our first opportunity to get the officer's "story" under oath. Inconsistencies between the officer's MVD testimony, interview testimony, and DUI trial testimony can create a valuable impeachment tool.
