DUI Attorney Kyle T. Green
Arizona is known for having some of the harshest DUI laws in the country as well as some of the harshest punishments for those convicted. Because of this, it is important to at least discuss your case with a DUI attorney experienced in first time DUI law.
On the surface, DUI cases might seem cut and dry. But, as with any criminal proceeding, you are innocent until proven guilty and it is worth the time to investigate your case looking at things like the evidence against you, testing errors and witness credibility.
As an aggressive Arizona DUI attorney, I know the questions to ask and the way to answers. I know the law and the strategies and tactics available when defending your rights. In my consultations with clients, we discuss all your options and I make sure all your questions are answered. If I then have the privilege of defending your DUI charge, I will work tirelessly to ensure you are protected and defended throughout each step of your criminal proceeding.
