Flagstaff DUI Attorney
Avoid a Conviction with the Help of a Former Prosecutor
Being charged and convicted with a DUI can have an extraordinary impact on your life. Having your license revoked can make getting to work difficult or impossible, and simply having a DUI conviction on your record can result in not being considered for certain employment or housing opportunities. Working with a skilled Flagstaff criminal defense attorney who understands the intricacies surrounding DUI law, as well as all that is at stake, is extremely important. When you are choosing a lawyer, you are entrusting that legal team with your freedom, your reputation, and your future.

What Types of DUI are There?
There are three main types of DUI offenses in the state of Arizona. With a standard DUI the driver has a BAC above .08 but below .150. Extreme DUI, on the other hand, involves a driver with a BAC in excess of .150. Finally, a driver may be charged with aggravated DUI if there was a child under the age of 15 in the car, if the driver had at least 2 prior convictions in the past 7 years, if the driver was using a suspended license at the time of the DUI, or if an ignition interlock device was already installed.
The consequences of a DUI can vary depending on whether or not you have prior convictions. A first offense for a standard DUI, for example, may result in penalties such as 10 days in jail, $1250 fine, an ignition interlock device for your vehicle, some sort of treatment or education program, and community service.
The penalties of being convicted of any type of DUI may include:
- The suspension of your license
- The installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle
- Jail time
- Substance abuse screening
Some or all of this can be avoided if you hire an attorney who knows how to deal with prosecutors and navigate the Flagstaff court system. As a former prosecutor, Adam Zickerman has the experience to do just that.
