Cell Phone Usage And Texting Laws In Arizona

“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 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.

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 Phoenix 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.
