Phoenix DUI Defense Lawyer

Charged With DUI? We Can Help

If you have been charged with a DUI or related offense in the Phoenix or Arizona area, you will want to contact Ryan Garvey Attorneys for a free consultation for representation. These charges can have a large impact on your life, and without proper representation, you will have serious consequences.

DUI Lawyers You Can Trust in Phoenix

The Arizona laws break the severity of a DUI into several categories based on the degree to which the driver is intoxicated and how many times the driver has been convicted. A Phoenix DUI defense lawyer can help you make sense of your situation.

Drivers may face Arizona DUI charges if they are caught driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or more. Studies reveal that a .05 BAC level leaves a driver impaired and thus, .08 is the standard BAC level that results in an Arizona DUI offense conviction in the event that a driver is caught driving while intoxicated.

Get started today by calling us at (602) 353-7328 or contact us online. 

Arizona DUI Laws

You will face Arizona DUI charges if you are caught driving under the following conditions:

  • Driving with a BAC of .08 + within two hours of driving
  • Driving with a BAC of .04 + if you hold a commercial drivers license and are operating a commercial vehicle
  • Driving with any metabolite of an illegal substance in your body
  • Driving under the age of 21 and with any amount of spirituous alcohol in your body
  • Driving impaired to any degree as a result of the use of a substance

Consequences of a DUI conviction vary depending on how many times a person has been caught operating a vehicle while being under the influence and the degree of how intoxicated they are.
