Someone commits an aggravated DUI when law enforcement finds them driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol while also committing another offense.
If you’ve received a charge for suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you could get charged with a DUI. Often, law enforcement officers determine your alleged intoxication by measuring your blood alcohol content. The Arizona Department of Public Safety states that if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is over .08 percent or higher, you’re over the legal limit.
An aggravated DUI charge is an elevated charge and usually occurs when factors (aside from drinking and driving) are involved. Therefore, people who face aggravated DUI charges could face harsher penalties than someone who got charged with a regular DUI.
Aggravating factors could increase the penalties when caught driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
You could face an aggravated DUI charge if:
You could face aggravated DUI charges if you get pulled over and meet these factors. If so, our team can protect your freedom.
If you get stopped by law enforcement and have a BAC over the legal limit, you could lose your license for up to one year. You could also have to complete a required drug and alcohol screening before you can get your license back. If you refuse to blow into the Breathalyzer, you could receive 12 months to 24 months of a license suspension.
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), other penalties for a DUI conviction include:
For an aggravated DUI, you could face two years in prison in addition to the other penalties involved with a DUI. In addition, you will have to perform community service and have a certified ignition interlock device to start your car.
You could face other consequences outside of the law because of a conviction on your record. That is why you must hire an aggravated DUI defense attorney.

Long-term consequences of having a conviction on your record include:

When you start working with our firm, we can build a solid defense strategy against your charges. We can tailor your defense based on the circumstances and evidence surrounding your case. Potential defenses include:
Everyone in the United States who gets arrested has the right to consult with an attorney during any criminal investigation before or after they get arrested. In an aggravated DUI, it is critical to obtain legal counsel quickly; this allows a lawyer to manage your case from the very beginning.
In Arizona, someone who law enforcement suspects of driving while under the influence can speak to an attorney if it doesn’t delay the investigation.
If the investigators refused to allow you to have an attorney present during questioning, they must prove it would have impeded the timeline of the investigation. If the state doesn’t allow you to have an attorney and cannot provide a reasonable rationale for that decision, they could drop the charges.
A Breathalyzer is a tool law enforcement uses to determine someone’s BAC level. Occasionally, these tools can provide an indirect or inaccurate reading.
Other factors that could affect Breathalyzer test results could include:
Our attorneys can speak with experts to determine if there were any inaccuracies with the Breathalyzer test results. If the Breathalyzer was improperly administered or was not maintained properly, it could malfunction. We can find many reasons to prove the Breathalyzer malfunctioned and have any related evidence dismissed.
Law enforcement cannot stop a motorist unless they reasonably suspect the person driving is breaking the law. Law enforcement cannot seize any person if a violation hasn’t occurred.
Law enforcement must prove you violated a traffic law, which is why they pulled you over. They cannot stop a vehicle because they think or assume the person is breaking the law.
Our attorneys can review the police report and body cam footage to determine why you got pulled over. If the law enforcement officers illegally stopped you, we could work to get your charges dropped.
The police must go through certain channels to gather the evidence needed to support your case. If they don’t follow this procedure, we could move to have this information disregarded. If that information is the only thing the prosecutor has to support their case, we could fight to have your case dismissed or dropped.

I asked around for referrals for a criminal defense lawyer in the Biltmore area and Omer Gurion’s name came up often. Very responsive, reassuring, and confident. I’m so glad I called, a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Thanks Omer!

My experience with hiring Omer as my attorney has been nothing short of great. Communication with Omer, Ashley and Lisa is always easy with quick responses. Based on my case Omer was able to pull off a miracle for me. Working with Gurion Legal took a lot of stress off me. They were able to get me the most favorable outcome for my situation and I’m beyond thankful for that. I know exactly who I’d go back to if needed or who I would definitely recommend to any family or friends in need of a lawyer.
Mr. Gurion did an amazing job representing me. He got the best possible outcome for my case.
Omer is a fantastic attorney. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing attorney.
I endorse the 5 stars they receive – they earn them. They’ve been hardworking and knowledgeable, and I should know, I’ve hired them twice! Dealing with legal matters is really difficult, confusing, and stressful, and they ease that burden when you want to count on and trust somebody. I fired my first defense attorney, who wasn’t working much at all to help me, and luckily found Omer and his colleagues. My outcomes were both times much better than I ever expected. If you’re reading reviews looking for legal help, call them.
