Firm Overview

Scottsdale, Arizona, DUI/DWI Attorneys

Good people make mistakes. At the Rosenstein Law Group PLLC, we work hard to ensure that one bad night does not change the rest of your life.

Arizona prosecutors push hard to secure convictions for DUI/DWI charges, and the punishments are getting tougher every year. Our drunk driving defense lawyers push harder to prevent the most adverse outcomes. We will aggressively fight for your rights, including going to trial when appropriate to force the prosecution to prove its case. Experienced attorney Craig Rosenstein handles every level of DUI and related charges.

An overly aggressive lawyer may just aggravate your situation. When you're thrust into the judicial system involuntarily, the process can seem overwhelming and frightening. An overly aggressive attorney can actually reduce opportunities to resolve your case favorably.

At the Rosenstein Law Group, we bring a different attitude and approach that has produced notable results. We will compassionately explain the proceedings and ensure that you understand your options. We offer sympathetic, non-judgmental representation, and our entire focus is on limiting the short-term and long-term ramifications for you. We are here to help and to answer all of your questions. Aggressiveness has its time and place, and it's aimed at the prosecutors, not our clients. Craig Rosenstein takes pride in forcefully requiring the State to prove its case.

Convenient Representation

Our firm offers effective DUI defense strategies for those arrested in Maricopa County, Pinal County or Pima County, including Scottsdale, Mesa and the greater Phoenix area. We have represented many tourists charged with DUI while visiting Arizona, as well as ASU students and personnel from area military bases.

For DUI/DWI cases, we are available 24 hours a day and seven days a week. We understand that you're more likely to need a drunk driving defense attorney at 3 a.m. than during traditional business hours. We also understand that you are scared and worried. We do everything we can to reassure clients that there is hope, by exploring every facet of the prosecution's case to find that one thing that will result in dismissal of charges, suppression of evidence, reduced penalties or reasonable doubt for a jury.

Our attorneys try to make the process as convenient and comfortable as possible under the circumstances. We regularly take evening and weekend appointments to accommodate our clients' schedules. Our offices in Scottsdale are easily reached using public transportation. We offer free, no-risk initial consultations and, on approved credit, allow monthly installment payment plans for our DUI cases. We also accept all major credit cards.

Don't Let Your Rights Expire
Every day that you wait can harm your ability to fight the charges. For detail-oriented, individualized representation in your DUI or traffic case, call us today at 480.248.7666 or

Aggravated DUI

Aggravated DUI

Felony Drunk Driving Charges

Skilled Defense for Aggravated DUI in Arizona

Driving under the influence is normally a misdemeanor offense. However, under Arizona DUI law, certain aggravating factors push it up to a serious felony crime:

  • A third DUI within 7 years
  • DUI with a passenger under 15 years old
  • DUI while driving on a suspended/revoked license
  • Personal injury or property damage while driving drunk

Conviction for aggravated DUI carries mandatory minimum prison time. Before you make any statements to authorities or submit to any tests, it is critical to get legal advice from an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

Will Your DUI Be Charged as a Felony?
The Rosenstein Law Group provides a
free initial consultation and we are available 24/7, serving clients in Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe, Phoenix and all of Maricopa, Pinal and Pima counties. Call 480.248.7666 now.

Potential Penalties for Aggravated DUI

Your DUI becomes a Class 4 felony if (a) you caused an accident, (b) were driving without a license or (c) have two previous convictions for driving while intoxicated. Punishments include:

  • A presumptive sentence of 1.75 years in prison
  • Forfeiture of your vehicle
  • Staggering fines (by law, up to $150,000)
  • Probation for 10 years
  • Three-year license revocation
  • Ignition interlock for up to 10 years once reinstated

If there was a child under 15 in your vehicle at the time of your aggravated DUI arrest, it is a Class 6 felony. You must serve at least the minimum jail time for the underlying DUI offense (10 days for a first offense, 90 days for a second offense, etc.).

Aggravated DUI Defense

Craig Rosenstein applies aggressive and proven defenses for aggravated DUI to avoid prison time or minimize the punishments.

  • We attack the intoxication component. If we can get key evidence (BAC, field sobriety tests) suppressed on the basis of an illegal traffic stop or other police error, the prosecutor may drop the case entirely or charge it instead as a misdemeanor DUI.
  • We address the previous DUIs or license suspensions. Mr. Rosenstein has been successful in challenging the legitimacy of prior convictions, or demonstrating that his client's license should not have been suspended.

Plea bargains are usually not an option for aggravated DUI. If the prosecutor has a solid case, it may be necessary to go to trial. Craig Rosenstein is a skilled and thoroughly prepared trial attorney who gives a jury compelling reasons to acquit.

Contact Rosenstein Law Group today for a free consultation and honest evaluation of your case and your options. We are available day or night to come to your aid.

Aggressive DUI Defenses

 

The Full Case Strategy

Aggressive Representation for an Arizona DUI Arrest

There is too much at stake to simply take a conviction for drunk driving. With the help of an experienced DUI lawyer, there are dozens of legitimate ways to attack the basis for the charges. The Rosenstein Law Group PLLC employs smart, aggressive and proven strategies to get charges dismissed or reduced, or to soften harsh penalties.

No case is hopeless. We can help.
Attorney Craig Rosenstein has defended hundreds of clients in Scottsdale, the Phoenix metro area, and throughout Maricopa, Pinal and Pima counties. Call us 24/7 at 480.248.7666 for a free initial consultation.

Targeted Strategies to Beat Your DUI

Our "full case strategy" is not a scattergun approach. Piece by piece, we carefully examine every aspect of the prosecution's case to find errors, unsupportable conclusions or reasonable doubt. Mr. Rosenstein uses these defenses to bargain with prosecutors or to take your case to a jury, and he has obtained notable results for many clients — even in seemingly "hopeless" cases.

We thoroughly evaluate your case and challenge the prosecutors on many fronts to get evidence excluded or keep the charges from sticking:

  • Inconsistencies in the police report
  • Independent testing of blood-alcohol samples
  • Constitutional violations (traffic stop, questioning, vehicle search, arrest)
  • Field sobriety tests
  • Chain of custody of evidence
  • Breathalyzer results and officer training
  • Time lag between the arrest and officer's report
  • Criminologists who can refute the evidence

Whether this is your first DUI or you are charged with a repeat offense, we work hard to find the unique issues in your case that will help limit the consequences. Craig Rosenstein has numerous success stories from his strategic and aggressive representation.

Call immediately at 480.248.7666 to protect your remaining rights and help us help you. We offer a free initial consultation in the greater Phoenix area, including

Drugs and DUI

 

Arrested for a Drug-Related DUI in Arizona?

Aggressive Defense for Driving While Impaired by Drugs

Arizona's DUI law specifically states that you can be convicted if you are "impaired to the slightest degree." Even if you have consumed no alcohol, the drunk driving statute applies if police allege that drugs, prescription or otherwise, diminished your ability to operate a vehicle.

Drugs and DUI Defense Lawyer
Contact the Rosenstein Law Group immediately at 480.248.7666 if you have been arrested for a drug-related DUI. We have a successful record of beating the charges or limiting the consequences. Our firm serves Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa and all communities of Maricopa, Pima and Pinal counties.

Challenging the Prosecution's Case

You can be charged with driving while impaired (DUI/DWI) for use of marijuana, controlled substances such cocaine or ecstasy, or prescription narcotics (whether illegally obtained or prescribed by a doctor). Unlike alcohol, any amount of drugs in your bloodstream could be grounds for conviction even if they were consumed weeks ago.

Attorney Craig Rosenstein offers aggressive strategies for drug DUI defense. He often takes these cases to trial, challenging shaky evidence and violations of clients' rights. A drug-related DUI charge is often based on unsupportable conclusions from field sobriety tests and other observations of the arresting officer. That officer doesn't know you or your physical limitations. There are many explanations other than drugs for your performance on roadside tests. We also use a team of experts including excellent private criminologists to challenge the results of blood tests (was it a false positive?) and the chain of custody of the sample (was it improperly drawn or contaminated?).

For proven defense when drugs and DUI are connected, contact the Rosenstein Law Group. We offer a free case evaluation to discuss the facts and your best options to avoid an adverse outcome.
