Common Misconceptions about Multiple DUI Offenses

Interviewer: Once someone is going through their second or third DUI, what are some of the misconceptions that they may have?

Do Not Underestimate the Severity of Penalties for Multiple DUI Convictions

Brian: Once they have hit their second or their third, if they think it is going to be like the first as far as jail time, as far as fines and fees, as far as counseling, they’re in for a shock.  The sentencing ranges usually are going to be much greater the second time and the third time around.

I don’t think people go into this oblivious, especially if it’s by the time that they have their second or their third one.  They know that punishment is coming.  They know that they are very likely going to have to face reality and deal with the consequences to their life for allegedly doing this again.

Are Men More Likely than Women to Face DUI Charges?

Interviewer: In repeat DUI cases, are there more men than women offenders?

There Is a Rise in the Number of Women Charged with DUI

Brian: I think generally in the system there are more men that deal with alcohol DUIs.  There seem to be more women that deal with prescription medication DUIs.  Over the last five years or so, I have definitely seen more women in the system than there used to be.

DUI offenders still tend to be predominantly be male but things are changing, especially with the number of prescription medication cases that are coming along.  It can really happen to anyone. Unfortunately, when we’re talking about alcohol, women just because of their size tend to be able to have higher blood alcohol levels quicker than men.  It only takes a few beers to get to a rather high blood alcohol level, whereas men it might take a little bit more.

“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 Arizona DUI Defense representation, having personally defended over 4,200+ DUI clients in the past 19+ years.

If you’re looking for a divorce attorney, tax attorney, or civil attorney, 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 they think people want to hear them. 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, Criminal Cases, Accident Cases, and Divorces. 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 Phoenix DUI Defense Representation.

What I offer is intelligent, quality DUI Defense at an exceptional price.

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

I am one of Arizona's most award-winning DUI Defense Lawyers, recognized nationally, including in a 2022 issue of USA Today.

There are no other private DUI Defense Lawyers in Arizona that have personally defended more DUI cases than I have. And as a bonus, I offer a flat rate for my legal services without any hidden charges. This guarantees that I offer some of the most competitive rates among all Arizona DUI Attorneys, while being the 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 documented best DUI Lawyer in Phoenix and the surrounding areas of Maricopa County.

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