Pima County Super Extreme DUI Attorneys

Santa Cruz County Super Extreme DUI Defense Lawyers

Super Extreme DUI Defense Lawyers for Tucson, AZ

Under Arizona law, you will be charged with driving under the influence (DUI) if the police find you have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or higher within two hours of driving or being in physical control of a vehicle. If you are under the age of 21 or a commercial driver, then the standard is tougher. Yet no matter your age or type of driver's license, you will face more serious charges if you have a BAC above .15 percent, known as an extreme DUI, or above .20 percent, which is also an extreme DUI, but carries higher penalties.

The potential punishments for an extreme DUI are harsh. However, you do not have to resign yourself to the maximum penalties. There are numerous ways to defend against these allegations and, if necessary, minimize the consequences of a conviction. Contact our experienced Pima County criminal defense lawyers of Behan Ramsell, P.L.L.C. at 520-220-5047 to learn more.
