Can I make payments on DUI fines in Arizona?

When you are convicted of DUI in Arizona or any other criminal charges, it is critical that you pay the court fines and fees on time.

Convicted of a Crime on Job Application

 

Finding a job in today’s economy can be tough. Although that is a difficult task on its own for the best of candidates, adding an Arizona DUI conviction to your record can make a job search even more problematic.

How to Remove a DUI off My Record

When you are arrested or convicted of drunk driving, resulting criminal charges can heavily affect your daily life. You may lose your job, struggle to find a new position, get expelled from college and even suffer credit problems. Your insurance is likely to cost more. Also, if you are in politics or hold other positions scrutinized by the public, you will likely experience trouble gaining those roles in the future – if you are eligible to hold office, at all.

In Arizona, if you have been convicted of DUI you may be eligible for a Set Aside. A Set Aside is similar to expungement of criminal records in other states. To find out if a Set Aside will work to clear DUI conviction from your criminal record, call the Law Offices of David M. Cantor.


What a Set Aside / Expungement can do for DUI Convictions

Depending upon the circumstances of each individual’s case, it is often possible to have a DUI, drug-related or other conviction removed from your public record by a lawyer for expungement or Set Aside. First, you must complete all of the conditions of your sentence and associated probation. If you have achieved this and have otherwise cooperated as you should, the court may agree to have your DUI or criminal records Set Aside. This means that the conviction will be cleaned from your record, as if you were never found guilty. (more…)

False DUI Breathalyzer Results from Foreign Substances

When you are suspected of DUI and administered a breathalyzer test, there are a multitude of substances that can affect your test results. Even if you have not been drinking alcohol, you can still be arrested if your breathalyzer test registers over the national legal limit of 0.08 percent for blood alcohol content (BAC).

When a proper defense is needed for your breathalyzer test results as part of a DUI case, it is important to get the help of a lawyer as soon as possible. Your criminal defense attorney can help you build a strong, aggressive defense against these charges.


What Causes Breathalyzers to Register Positive for BAC?

When you have not been drinking, but have a positive result for BAC during a breathalyzer test, there are several things that may have caused this “false positive.” These include asthma inhalants, administered by patients directly through a device much like a breathalyzer, called an inhaler.
