Can You Get A DUI Conviction Expunged in Arizona?

In Arizona, you can have a DUI conviction expunged so it does not have an effect on the rest of your life. Anyone having a DUI on their record can be eligible to have that conviction set aside if they meet certain requirements. Before you read about how to get your DUI set aside, you need to understand what is a DUI expungement and the DUI expungement process.

What is a DUI Expungement?

The term used to have a DUI conviction cleared or expunged in Arizona is called setting aside a conviction. Under Arizona law, only juveniles under the age of 18 who have committed a crime are technically allowed to have their record expunged.

Anyone who has proven to be responsible ever since their DUI conviction is eligible to have their DUI conviction set aside. Once that conviction is set aside, it will not appear in basic background checks which are run by universities, potential employers, as well as other companies and creditors. Anyone doing a deeper search will be able to see that a DUI was present but was dismissed.

The good thing about getting a DUI expunged is that you can legally declare on any applications that you have never been convicted of a crime, given that you don’t have any other criminal record apart from that DUI. Getting a DUI expunged improves your chances of applying for a job, getting a scholarship or getting admission in certain colleges or universities that require a clean background.

Setting Aside Your DUI Conviction

In order to have a DUI conviction set aside, certain requirements need to be fulfilled. These may include:

  • Paying any fees and fines
  • Completing any probation period successfully
  • Completing any jail sentence
  • Attending mandatory classes and other court-mandated tasks such as installing an Ignition Interlock Device

You will need to keep record of everything in order to prove in court that you have actually met all terms of your DUI sentence. Most judges will also look at a clean record since the actual DUI conviction before expungement.

Contact an experienced DUI defense attorney in order to prepare and complete the expungement process successfully. You will need to fill out and submit paperwork from the Arizona Superior Court to have the conviction set aside. The attorney will also help with the complex details that need to be prepared to file a motion to set aside the conviction.

“I am one of only a handful of Phoenix DUI Lawyers that focuses solely on DUI Defense representation.”

I have spent my entire career focused on DUI Defense representation, having personally defended more than 4,100+ DUI clients in the past 18+ 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, and is often used to put on a show for a client to hide the fact that they aren’t doing anything meaningful for the client.

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 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 am one of the most award-winning DUI Defense Lawyers in Arizona; have been recognized nationally, including in a 2022 issue of USA Today; and there are only a few lawyers in Arizona who have personally defended more DUI cases than I have. I am also one of the most reasonably-priced DUI Lawyers, as I pride myself on charging a Flat Rate only for the legal services you need, and not for the legal services you don’t.

I am also the lawyer who people call once they realize that their original lawyer screwed something up, gave them false hope or false promises, or simply just took their money and didn’t do much on the case. You would be surprised at how often this happens.

Save yourself the trouble of hiring the wrong lawyer, and hire the right DUI Defense Lawyer from the start.

You can reach me on my personal cell phone: 480-720-7839.

Let me know if you have any questions!
