Defense Attorney Brian Sloan’s Accreditations in DUI Law

Interviewer: Well, I guess instead of people thinking they can expect the maximum penalty, they should expect fair equal treatment. They should expect the seriousness of the offense to be fully prosecuted, I think, is a better way to put it.

I also saw, in looking over your materials, that you have different associations you’re a part of and numerous accreditations. This includes, obviously the state bar and also the Arizona Attorneys for Criminal Justice and Super Lawyers and others. These accreditations, what do they mean? What organizations are you a part of that show that you’re focused on DUI defense and that you’re not just someone that dabbles in that legal area? Are there any accreditations and associations that you want to talk about that are important?

Brian: Associations are nice. Your membership looks good on a website and they look good to be able to display a placard. There are quite a few of them that you just kind of buy into. Some of them are free. The AVVO is one, where you can basically manipulate the system to be a perfect 10. But it looks good to the public.

There are other ones, the AACJ, Maricopa County Bar Association. There are a lot of bar associations and groups that look good, but all it really entails is paying a monthly or a yearly fee. There are other associations that really should have a lot more weight. The public should see those people with higher regard.

Super Lawyers is one of them. Although I haven’t announced it yet, I don’t actually get to announce it until April, Super Lawyers has awarded me Rising Star for 2013, which is a prestigious honor. It’s not something that you can buy. It’s not something that I requested. Just out of the blue, they took recognition of all the work that I’ve done. So, I will be designated Super Lawyers Rising Star. Just today I was peer reviewed by Martindale Hubbell, which is another prestigious organization. They rated me a 4.9 out of 5. That’s based on reviews from other attorneys within Maricopa County.

When Reviewing an Attorney’s Accreditations, Not All Are Credible or Earned By Exhibiting Exemplary Defense Tactics

There are certain establishments that are better than others. It’s the ones where you are peer reviewed or you are given an award of some sort. Not necessarily all of them that give out awards are credible. But Super Lawyers is something to be earned, Martindale Hubbell is something to be earned, and I have earned very high prestigious awards.

Interviewer:   Are you a member of the National College for DUI Defense, NCDD?

Brian: I’m not, just because I don’t see the benefit of doing that. Again, it would be something to pay just to be able to put it on the website and I can do that. I’ve gone to the seminars. I don’t learn anything at the seminars.

I mean I could buy a membership. I’m trying to remember, I don’t think I’ve taught at that seminar. I could buy it if I needed to or if I wanted to.

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

I have spent my entire career SOLELY focused on Arizona DUI Defense Representation, having personally defended more than 4,400 Driving Under the Influence (DUI) clients in the past 19+ years.

If you’re looking for a Divorce Attorney, Tax Attorney, Civil Attorney, etc., I can comfortably say, "I’m not the one for you." I ONLY defend DUI cases in most of Maricopa County, Arizona.

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 it is a proven advertising phrase. Being "aggressive" isn’t the same as being good, and is often used to put on a show to hide the fact that they aren’t doing anything meaningful for the client.

The same is true for the Lawyers claiming to do DUI Defense, and Criminal Cases, and Accident Cases, and Divorces, etc. A Jack-of-all-Trades is a master of none! By handling all 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. Unlike many other law firms, if you hire The Law Offices of Brian D. Sloan, you actually get me representing you, doing all the work, and working the case. You aren’t hiring one guy with all the experience, but getting the underling with very little knowledge or experience.

I work seven days a week on my client’s cases, and spend hours laying all my thoughts out for my clients in writing, so they can understand their options, and my recommendations. No other DUI Lawyer in the state does this. I try to do what I can to go above-and-beyond for my clients. I hate when the businesses I deal with nickel-and-dime me with hidden costs, and I take pride in not doing that to my clients.

I have not only taught other lawyers how to do DUI Defense Representation at statewide seminars, but I have produced DUI Legal Guides used by defense lawyers across Arizona.

I am one of Arizona's most award-winning DUI Defense Lawyers, as well as being recognized nationally. I was the only DUI Defense Lawyer in the United States named a "Power Lawyer" in a 2022 issue of USA Today

There are no other private Lawyers in Arizona that have personally defended more DUI cases than I have. And as a bonus, I offer a very reasonable flat rate for my legal services, with a payment plan, and without any hidden charges. This guarantees that I offer some of the most competitive rates among all Arizona DUI Attorneys, while being a well-documented and preeminent leader in the field of DUI Defense Representation.

Over the years, countless people have come to me after discovering that their first lawyer made a mistake, gave them false hope or false promises, or simply took their money and didn't do much to advance their case. And you would be surprised at how often this happens.

So, instead of wasting time and money on the wrong DUI Defense Attorney, do yourself a favor and get the proven and well-recognized best DUI Lawyer in Phoenix and the surrounding areas of Maricopa County.

You can reach me on my personal cell phone at 480-720-7839 for a Free ‘In Depth’ Consultation.

I personally defend DUI cases in urban Maricopa County City, Town, and Justice Courts, including:

Ahwatukee / Agua Fria / Arcadia Biltmore / Avondale / Buckeye / Chandler / Country Meadows / Desert Ridge / Dreamy Draw / Downtown / East Mesa / El Centro / Encanto / Gilbert / Glendale / Goodyear / Guadalupe / Highland / Kyrene / Litchfield Park / Maryvale / McDowell Mountain / Mesa / Moon Valley / North Mesa / Peoria / Phoenix / Queen Creek / San Marcos / San Tan / South Mountain / Scottsdale / Tempe / University Lakes / West McDowell / West Mesa / White Tank

For any other Courts in the State of Arizona, including Felony cases, I would recommend my associates on The Arizona DUI Team, whom I work closely with, but I am not the one personally representing the client.
