COMMERCIAL TRUCKING (CDL) VIOLATIONS AND DEFENSE
A traffic violation can have significant consequences. DUI charges will cause your driver’s license to be suspended for a significant period of time. This suspension can occur even before your case goes to Court. If you drive for a living, this can significantly impact your lifestyle. For commercial truck drivers in Arizona, the stakes are especially high. Arizona trucker violations can be complex and difficult to understand. The consequences can be severe and career-ending. As such, it is important to hire a traffic or commercial driver’s lawyer who can help you understand your options and who can fight for the best possible resolution. We pride ourselves on maintaining close client contact and worry-free defense so you can move on with your life. We can typically handle all aspects of your case. Generally, you will not have to travel back to Arizona to attend courtroom hearings. Instead, we will appear on your behalf and continue to work your case to minimize any negative impact on your commercial driver’s license (CDL).
POSSIBLE DUI OR DWI CHARGES IN ARIZONA
Misdemeanor DUI: You can be charged and convicted if you are found to be driving under the influence while impaired to the slightest degree. The State does not even have to show a specific alcohol concentration (BAC) to prove this offense. An officer can testify to his observations that you were driving while impaired. You can also be charged and convicted for this offense if you are shown to be driving under the influence with a alcohol concentration of .08 or above within 2 hours of driving. The higher your BAC, the higher the penalties, including more jail time. Higher BAC’s can lead to an Extreme or “Super” Extreme DUI. The MVD will take steps to suspend or revoke your driving privileges for a period of time. We can help minimize these consequences. Commercial drivers can be charged and convicted for a DUI with much lower alcohol concentrations. The consequences of a DUI for a commercial driver can be much harsher than a noncommercial driver.
Aggravated DUI: Under certain circumstances, you may be charged with a felony DUI. Arizona DUI law is complex and thorough. You need an experienced, dedicated attorney to look at your case and fight for a workable outcome.
