Tempe, Arizona DUI Attorney Timothy Tobin

Tobin Law Office is familiar with Chandler Municipal Court

Tempe’s DUI courts often times impose harsh DUI Penalties. Mandatory and discretionary penalties can include jail, fines, assessments, surcharges, license suspensions, interlock, increased insurance, drug and alcohol classes, community service, and more. This adds up to incredible stress, frequent trips to Court and MVD, and thousands of dollars. Worst of all, a Tempe DUI conviction may leave a permanent criminal conviction that will show up in background checks.

If you or a loved one is facing a Tempe DUI, it’s important to immediately consult a professional Tempe DUI lawyer. With a brief consultation, you’ll learn about the crucial and time-sensitive actions that should be taken. For instance, there’s only 15 days to request a hearing with the Executive Hearing Office to avoid the immediate suspension of your driver’s license. It also may be wise to arrange for a preliminary alcohol screening, which can help get your license back sooner.

Tempe DUI Cases Have Two Components.

The Scottsdale DUI attorneys at Tobin Law Office can represent you in both parts of your DUI, while providing comprehensive guidance.

  1. MVD Hearing: the MVD part of DUI deals with the potential suspension or revocation of your license. When arrested for DUI, it may be wise to request a hearing with MVD. Keep in mind, though, you only have 15 days to request a hearing before your license is automatically suspended. In some circumstances, it may be wiser to agree to the suspension or request a summary review hearing.
  2. Criminal Case: The criminal DUI court process determines what charges you’re guilty or not guilty of. Ultimately, the case is either dismissed, plea bargained, or set for trial.
