Why Hire The Law Offices Of Gary L. Rohlwing

Driving while intoxicated (DUI) is a serious and punishable crime in every single state. With that being said, the law doesn't even require you to be intoxicated and/or drunk in order for yourself to be found guilty of DUI charges. Rather, you are determined impaired once you exceed the state limit. Since the blood alcohol limit is now standard, each state has a legal limit of .08%.

The consequences of a DUI are going to alter from state to state and are usually influenced by several other factors as well including; blood alcohol content, age, previous arrests, and whether or not any injury or death was caused as a result of the accident or DUI.

Deciding whether or not you should hire a DUI attorney is likely going to be a personal choice. However, it is important to understand the consequences of being convicted of a DUI and how hiring a reputable and respected lawyer can protect you.

What Does An Experienced DUI Lawyer Like Gary L. Rohlwing Do?

In a general sense, a DUI lawyer looks at the specific range of potential consequences for each of his/her clients and they ultimately try to determine how to proceed in order to minimize the consequences and the damage that is going to be done to their own clients. Therefore, often a DUI lawyer will access the clients situation and be able to determine quickly that the client will be able to get off with something as little as probation and/or be faced with very minor consequences. Because every DUI charge case is likely to be different, you are going to want to be sure that your situation is under control and is handled with the proper care.

This is where hiring the right and experienced DUI attorney comes into play. A DUI lawyer that is experienced is going to be able to properly access your individual case and determine the potential jail time and/or fines that you can expect if your case goes to trial. Because a lot of DUI law offices like ours only deal with DUI case files, you are going to get expert care because we happen to know the in's and out's of the entire process.

Because the consequences can be great and because they can vary from state to state, it is important to understand what you are being faced with. By hiring our law offices, we will be able to manage the entire process for you. Dealing with individual state motor vehicle departments can be a very frustrating and even time consuming process. We are able to manage the entire process for you by filling out and completing all of the required paperwork. We even schedule meetings, make phone calls on your behalf, and make other arrangements for you so you do not have to worry about it. Because we deal with DUI cases on a daily basis, we know exactly how strong your case is and whether or not you will be able to obtain a lesser sentence.

If you are not willing to do so, and you want to give yourself the best chance that you can to reduce your consequences, give the Law Offices of Gary L. Rohlwing a call.

How An Experienced DUI Attorney Like Gary Rohlwing Can Help You

Days spent in jail. A suspended license. Thousands of dollars in fines. Being charged with a DUI offense in Arizona is no small matter, because Arizona has perhaps the severest penalties of any state for DUI convictions.

If you are charged with driving under the influence, you must do two things. First, recognize that you are in extremely serious legal trouble. Second, immediately retain an experienced DUI attorney like Gary Rohlwing to fight a system that’s tilted against you from the start. 

Perhaps you made a mistake by having a few drinks and getting behind the wheel. Well, everyone makes mistakes. The important thing now is to avoid sticking your head in the sand while hoping everything turns out okay – Arizona prosecutors are trained to go for the jugular when prosecuting DUIs. For that reason, you must retain a top-notch DUI attorney to protect you in the coming legal battle. 

Arizona divides DUI offenses into two categories based on the level of a driver's blood alcohol content. If the level is .149 percent or lower, the offense is considered "basic." Anything .15 percent or higher is considered “extreme.” A conviction for a first, basic DUI offense carries minimum mandatory penalties of:

-          1 to 3 days in jail
-          $2,100 fine plus jail costs
-          License suspended for 30 days
-          Ignition lock for one year
There’s also the added indirect cost of auto insurance premiums which skyrocket after a DUI. 

If you are unfortunate enough to have your blood alcohol level measured at .15 or above, then the charges will be for an extreme DUI, carrying the following mandatory minimum penalties:

-          30 days in jail
-          $2,500 fine plus jail costs
-          License suspended for 90 days
-          Ignition lock for one year

Again, your auto insurance premiums will also increase drastically.
  These penalties don’t exist in a vacuum – they also have real world implications. How are you going to get to and from work? How will your employer react after learning you will be absent so you can serve time in jail for a criminal conviction? As painful as the penalties are for driving under the influence, the impact on your career and future can be far worse.
