A DUI Conviction: Is It Possible to Avoid a Jail Sentence?

Interviewer: I’m sure people will also say to you, is there any way I can avoid jail? Are there any alternatives? Can you keep me out of jail? Can you do that? Or, do people who are convicted have to spend at least some time in jail?

Brian: Really, the only way of keeping someone out of jail is to be able to get a reckless driving, or to get a not guilty verdict, or to get the case dismissed. Under every DUI law you have to do at least one day in jail. Now I have been successful in Scottsdale, where in reality, legally, they shouldn’t be able to do it, but somehow I’ve been able to work out an arrangement for my clients, so that the time that they spend with officers being investigated for DUI counts as the one day in jail.

I don’t think too many attorneys are aware of this, but it’s something that in my experience I’ve been able to figure out. Scottsdale may be one of the few places where a person can be convicted of DUI and not have to spend any days in jail based on the short amount of time that they have spent with the officer undergoing the DUI investigation. Really it’s not legally appropriate, but I’ve been able to get it done.

“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.
