Comprehensive DUI Defense


Tucson DUI Attorney

As a DUI Lawyer in Tucson for many years, I have handled hundreds of DUI cases. I know that dealing with DUI charges can be stressful and downright scary, especially when you've never been in trouble before. Drunk driving is a serious problem in Tucson, but the penalties for DUI often do more harm than the act itself. Arizona DUI laws have become so strict that they can derail a person's entire life. That's why it's important to seek guidance from a good Tucson DUI lawyer.

DUI Consequences in Arizona

Even a first-time DUI conviction in Arizona, without any accidents or bad driving, can leave someone with massive fines, a significant jail sentence, and no transportation. If you blood or breath alcohol is high enough, you can be charged with extreme DUI or super-extreme DUI. Both of these charges carry much higher mandatory minimum sentences than a regular DUI.

A DUI conviction can also have a number of other consequences in addition to whatever the judge orders at your sentencing. Simply being charged with DUI in Arizona can have a devastating effect on your driver’s license. A conviction can cause you insurance rates to sky rocket and can affect employment.

That's why it's so important to at least consult an experienced Tucson DUI lawyer if you've been charged with driving under the influence. You need honest advice from an experience top Tucson DUI defense lawyer.

"Nathan Leonardo represented me throughout my DUI experience including trial. I could not have hired a better attorney! His fees were reasonable and he advised me about the process from beginning to end. Having never had any legal issues in the past, this was a traumatic experience for me. Being a healthcare professional, I was worried about the impact on my license and future career. Mr. Leonardo walked me through all the steps and utilized a case portal so I had access to all documentation and could follow along with progress made during the case. During trial, Mr. Leonardo's aggressive representation was sufficient to prove my innocence! After a year-long ordeal of hearings, the case was dismissed. I cannot thank him enough!!!"
