Drunk driving is a serious offense and when you are charged with a DUI in Arizona you need to understand the laws and have legal representation to protect your interests. To go through the process in a smooth way you will have to do some important things.
Write Down What Happened
Write out what happened before, during and after your arrest. Make sure you do not leave out any detail. Keep in mind that the police wrote his report and unless you have your own notes the only available recording of the event will be his version.
Talk To a Lawyer
A lot of people believe that every DUI in Scottsdale is a slam dunk for prosecutors and enlisting the services of a Scottsdale DUI attorney is a waste of money. However, there are a lot of good reasons to hire an attorney. You would have somebody to talk to about your case, fight for you and ensure you don’t feel lost in the complicated system.
Understand the 15 day license suspension
For the majority of DUI arrests the police officer takesthea license and provides the driver a few pieces of paper. One of those pieces is a legal notification that the license of the driver will be suspended in 15 days. In fact such suspension can last 90 days, although the driver can have it back in 30. But you can request an administrative hearing to challenge the suspension. Either you or a Scottsdale DUI lawyer can request the hearing.
What To Expect When You Win Or Lose Your Case
When you win your case, you still need to deal with MVD. After a hearing they can still suspend your driver’s license. But if you lost at trial or took a plea, there are a lot of requirements you need to fulfill to have your license back.
