Arizona has some of the harshest DUI laws in the country. Under Arizona law, a person may be charged with a DUI if it can be proven that they were operating a vehicle and (1) had a Blood Alcohol Count (BAC) over .08, or (2) if the driver is impaired to the slightest degree regardless of BAC. Being impaired to the slightest degree means that under Arizona law, a person may be charged with a DUI, even if their BAC is well below .08, as long as a police officer or other witness is able to prove that the driver was impaired even to the slightest degree due to alcohol or drugs.
Arizona being a “Zero Tolerance State” means that under Arizona law, a person can be charged with a DUI with any BAC level, even under .08, as long as a police officer or other witness can prove that the driver was impaired to the slightest degree while driving.
An extreme DUI is a DUI with a BAC of .15 and above. This charge comes with harsher penalties than a regular DUI.
A Super Extreme DUI is a DUI with a BAC of .20 and above. This charge comes with harsher penalties than an Extreme DUI.
If you were arrested for a DUI, you should immediately contact an attorney, because a DUI conviction can often come with jail time, hefty fines and probation. A DUI may also come with a suspension or revocation of your driving privileges. Because of these serious potential consequences, it is critical that you speak with an attorney to understand what your rights are and what your options are.
Every case is different, and the best decision for one case may not be the best decision for another case. Speaking with an attorney will help you understand what your options are and allow you to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your case.
The maximum time a person can be sentenced to probation in Arizona for a DUI is 5 years. Judges often sentence people to much less time than 5 years, which is why it is critical to speak with an attorney if you are charged with a DUI.
Marijuana, just like alcohol, is legal to consume in Arizona but can still land you with a DUI. A person can be charged with a DUI if marijuana is currently in their system, even if they are not impaired. A single metabolite of marijuana in someone’s system is enough to be charged with a DUI, under Arizona law.

Our experienced team at Best Law Firm has helped thousands of clients. See what some of them have to say about working with us.
“Ms. Best resolved my spousal maintenance issue with my husband and his attorney in two hours. She accomplished what the lawyers could not do in 9 months of litigation. I am very grateful for her help.”
“We hired this law firm to represent our son in trying to get joint custody. They did a fabulous job keeping us informed as to their plan each week. I have to say I do not think my son would be enjoying his daughter right now with his 50/50 custody if it was not for this law firm.”
“You are the Best, before I retained counsel, I was not able to see my children and did not know what rights a father had in Arizona. I now have joint legal and physical custody. Thank you for all that you have done for my family.”
