These penalties can include both mandatory and discretionary consequences such as imprisonment, financial fines, assessments, surcharges, license suspensions, mandatory interlock device installation, increased insurance rates, mandatory participation in drug and alcohol classes, community service obligations, and more. As a result, individuals facing DUI charges often experience significant stress, numerous court appearances, multiple visits to the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD), and substantial financial burdens amounting to thousands of dollars. Moreover, a DUI conviction in Tempe can have long-lasting consequences, as it may result in a permanent criminal record that can appear during background checks.

Parts of a DUI Case
The experienced Tempe DUI lawyers at TedLaw are ready to represent you in both aspects of your DUI case, offering comprehensive guidance throughout the process.
MVD Hearing: The MVD component of a DUI case involves potential license suspension or revocation. It is advisable to request a hearing with the MVD if you have been arrested for DUI. However, it is important to note that you only have a 15-day window to request this hearing before your license is automatically suspended. Depending on the circumstances, it may be wise to agree to the suspension or request a summary review hearing.
Criminal Case: The criminal court proceedings for a DUI case determine the charges and whether you are found guilty or not guilty. The outcome of the case can result in dismissal, a plea bargain, or setting the case for trial. Our skilled attorneys will navigate the criminal court process on your behalf.
