Have you ever been pulled over for driving under the influence? This can be an embarrassing and terrifying situation, to say the least! Although we do not advocate or condone driving under the influence, we understand that you might at some point need a Phoenix DUI lawyer who really knows his stuff and can help you get off with the lightest sentencing possible. The penalties for DUI are outrageous, and can ruin your life as well as your evening.
For example, even if it is only your first offense you can still be sent to jail for up to ten days. While this does not sound like a lot of time to spend behind bars, remember that people who are not accustomed to prison life find their first few days in prison to be the worst days of their life. Add to this the fact that you will now have a criminal record and find it incredibly difficult to find employment, seek higher education or leave the country for any reason. These are all good reasons to have a Phoenix DUI lawyer who knows the law, knows your rights and has your back.
Maasen Law specialize in misdemeanor cases and DUI charges, and have years of experience service our clients in these matters. We do not handle larger criminal cases on primarily ethical grounds, but smaller misdemeanors and DUI cases are instances where we believe that courts often hand out harsher sentences than are necessary. As a result of this we provide for you the bestPhoenix DUI lawyer and advocate service to help to minimize the charges brought against you, advise you in these cases and help you to get the minimum sentence possible.
Of course, DUI law is often difficult to interpret, and there are many gray areas. If you have acted responsibly when you are pulled over, you might not even need the services of a Phoenix DUI lawyer. Remaining silent, refusing to take any tests without calling your attorney and co-operating with the arresting officer can buy you a lot of leeway in a courtroom. If you have complied with the officer and acted in an acceptable manner, there is a good chance that all of the charges against you could be dropped, and you might have only a small fine to pay, if anything at all.
However, if you have previously been convicted for driving under the influence, then you will definitely need a Phoenix DUI lawyer who can do anything necessary to lessen your sentence. The maximum prison sentence for a second offense of extreme DUI (blood alcohol level over 0.15) is very heavy, and you could end up spending quite a long time behind bars in addition to paying enormous fines up to $4,000! This is something not a lot of people can afford, so it is always in your best interest to have the best Phoenix DUI lawyer you can find available on call.
