Biggest Win of the MonthState v Anthony K – Four Counts of Aggravated DUI, all Class 4 Felonies. Court-Appointed Counsel pushed for 7 months for him to plea to a Designated Felony with 4 Months Jail. After I took over the case, within 10 days, Plea for Class 1 Misdemeanor, with 30 Days Jail.
I have spent my entire career focused on DUI Defense representation, having defended more than 3,200 DUI clients in the past 15+ years.
If you’re looking for a divorce attorney, tax attorney, or civil attorney, then I can comfortably say: “I’m not the one for you.”
Coming up with traditional, as well as outside-the-box motions and defenses for my clients, often with good results, is the hallmark of my practice.
Lawyers that say they are “aggressive,” or “will fight for you,” are a dime a dozen. They use these phrases because that is what they think people want to hear. The truth of the matter is, being “aggressive” rarely gets the client anywhere in these court systems. Being “aggressive,” isn’t the same as being good.
The same is true for the lawyers that claim to do DUI Defense… and Criminal Cases,… and Accident cases,… and Divorces. A Jack-of-all-Trades is a master of none. By handling all different sorts of cases, they take away from their ability to truly focus on DUIs, and keep up to date on the latest changes in DUI Defense Representation.
What I offer is intelligent, quality DUI defense, at an exceptional price.
I am one of only a handful of Arizona Defense DUI Lawyers that focuses solely on DUI Defense representation.
I have not only taught other lawyers how to do DUI Defense Representation at statewide seminars, but I produce DUI Legal Guides used by defense lawyers across Arizona.
I have an amazing track record of success for my clients, by thinking outside-the-box, and making arguments for suppression or dismissal that other attorneys have never even thought of. For example, I am the first Arizona Attorney to ever argue Entrapment in a DUI case, and I am one of the first lawyers, if not the first lawyer, who successfully argued the scientific unreliability of retrograde extrapolation (retroactively applying a Blood Alcohol Content to an earlier point in time). This type of argument has since been overturned by the Court of Appeals, which makes me one of the few attorneys to ever successfully argue this issue, resulting in a huge benefit for my client.
DUI is a specialized area of the law. It is not only important, but imperative, to have an experienced DUI Lawyer, who focuses his time and energy solely on the practice of DUI Defense.
When you hire The Law Office of Brian Douglas Sloan, you are hiring me, personally, and all my years of experience. You won’t be passed off to a subordinate lawyer, or a fresh-out-of-law-school attorney who will gain their experience at your expense. Also, and I want to make myself perfectly clear on this, I am not going to lie to you, or tell you that you have a great case if you don’t, or tell you that there is a good legal issue to fight if there isn’t. Lately I have been hearing from people that they prefer going with the attorney who tells them what they want to hear. That person will be horribly disappointed and out of a lot of money. I see it time and time again. Some law firms are known for doing this with every person they talk to, knowing that they will eventually withdraw off the case, and find any reason to keep your money. You will get an honest assessment of your case with me, not unsubstantiated claims that you have some great legal issue, or that there is a likelihood of an unrealistic plea agreement or dismissal. I don’t play games with the people I talk to, and that credibility tends to result in much better real outcomes for my clients.
My type of representation is hands-on. My clients are given direct access to talk and text me on my personal cell phone number, and can get quick responses from me from my personal email address. My clients know that if they have a question, I am there to answer it, as that is part of my representation.
With my experience and focus on DUI Defense, I have no doubt that I am the best value in the state for DUI representation. I offer a Free ‘In Depth’ Consultation, Payment Plans are available, and I offer a type of contract that I call Bifurcated Representation, which allows my client to pay very affordable flat rate fees, with the knowledge that they are not paying for services they are not receiving. My clients never worry about how many hours I am racking up, or paying for services they are not getting. Everything is laid out right up front in an easy to understand description.
Being charged with a DUI is scary. It is not an “intent” crime, no one means to do it, and sometimes people make a mistake… but sometimes innocent people, or people who are doing the right thing, get persecuted by the system.
Many people come to me thinking, ‘I was drinking, and I was driving, so what can you really do for me.’ Sometimes the answer is nothing, and I will honestly inform people of that. But many times there are issues besides drinking and driving. Many times there are legal issues, and factual issues, that the average person – and many lawyers – do not catch, that can make the difference between days, weeks, or years in jail or prison, and absolute freedom.
For example, in 2014, I took over an Aggravated DUI case from the Public Defender. With the Public Defender, the client received a plea offer of 6 years to 7 1/2 years in prison. She was facing 6 to 15 years in prison if convicted. It took some time, but in the end, I was able to get the entire case dismissed.
I have represented many cases that have resulted in suppressed evidence, charges being dismissed, or whole cases being dismissed. I have taken cases over from the Public Defender’s Office, or from other private attorneys, where they didn’t see the same things that I saw, yet when I was retained, that made all the difference. All of the sudden the years in prison turned into days in jail, or the DUI charge turned into ‘All Charges Dismissed.’
Recently, one of my clients fired one of the biggest law firms in the state to hire me. The law firm charged three times as much as what I charged, and when they were fired, they managed to keep about half of the client’s money, despite doing extremely little actual work on the case. I saw the plea agreement that they negotiated for their client. It was 90 days in jail, with 18 days actually spent in jail, and 72 days on Home Detention. After I took over the case, I handled the case correctly, at a fraction of what the other “big law firm” charged, and I was able to negotiate a plea to 3 days jail, and 11 days home detention. The big firms, with ones whose primary interest is getting your money into their pocket, are often the worse choice in defending a person’s DUI case.
While I can’t guarantee success in every case, I can guarantee that you will get all my years of experience put into your representation. Check out some of my Case Accomplishments.
I can say with absolute confidence that if you hire another attorney on your DUI case, you will likely be paying a lot more money, and/or getting a lot less experience.
