Defense for DUI on Suspended License in Phoenix
Former Prosecutors Fighting Aggravated DUI Charges in Arizona
When someone is pulled over for a serious traffic violation, there is a possibility that they will have their driver’s license suspended. This restricts the individual from driving, but that doesn’t always stop them from doing so. If a person drinks and drives and is pulled over while their license is suspended, this can result in an aggravated DUI charge – a felony. If you are arrested for a DUI on a suspended driver’s license, it is important to retain a Phoenix aggravated DUI defense lawyer as soon as possible.

We have nearly 100 years of experience and a reputation for providing favorable results for our clients. Our team works with the individual goals and situations of our clients in mind. This crime is serious and the statute in Arizona classifies it as a class 4 felony. It is important to make sure you have someone on your side standing up for your rights.
Penalties for an Aggravated DUI Charge
During the proceedings, there are a number of defenses that we may be able to use on your behalf. We can question the reason for the stop and the validity of the breath and blood tests that may have been used. If the officer failed to follow proper procedure in the stop and arrest, this may be used to get your case dismissed or charges reduced. If you are convicted of a DUI on a suspended driver’s license, however, you may face serious penalties.
In Arizona, the penalties for an aggravated DUI charge such as this include, but are not limited to:
- Prison time
- Installation of an ignition interlock device
- $250 assessment fee
- Possible $1,500 fee
- $750 fine
- Revoked driving privileges for a year
