In Arizona if you get a DUI you have 2 cases:
- Criminal case
- MVD case
Many people overlook or are unaware of the MVD case that concerns their DUI and end up with more severe problems; such as driving on a suspended license.
AZ MVD DUI Laws – What you need to know
In this video Phoenix Criminal Defense Lawyer Burges McCowan explains more about DUI and MVD cases:
This is Burges McCowan and in this video I’m going to talk about DUI and the MVD.
If you’ve been charged with the DUI, maybe cited by an officer, what you may not realize is that you also now have an MVD action pending against you. They work independently of the court, you might have your court date there for the charge which you also have MVD working separately. It’s very important that you’re aware of that and that you’ve got a good address with the MVD because they will be sending you a notice that they’re going to suspend your license and this is completely independent of what happens with your court case.
The suspension can vary depending the details of your case as well as what you may want to do about the suspension. You really need to sit down with a qualified lawyer to go over all those various possibilities for yourself, but the key here is to remember that you do have now an active case with MVD that can affect your license. You don’t want to have a suspended license while you’re driving around, you don’t want that hanging over you as well. If you have a DUI you want to talk to a qualified attorney that knows that they need to deal with the MVD as well and the time is of the essence for that.
I can help you with that. I also have videos for all the other different types of DUI’s that you might be facing but for all of them the MVD gets involved. If you have a DUI give me a call, I offer free consultations and I can help.
