Being accused of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can have substantial consequences on your driving privileges and personal life. If you were recently stopped by law enforcement and charged with a DUI, you have a limited time to act before those consequences start to reveal themselves. Arizona takes this crime very seriously, and you have a strenuous legal battle ahead of you. Attempting to fight these charges on your own will not put you in the best position to get them reduced or dropped. You need a skilled DUI attorney on your side, building a case for you that has the greatest chance at a favorable outcome. Our Scottsdale DUI lawyer, Javier Alatorre, has nearly two decades of success challenging DUI charges and helping clients get a second chance. Call Alatorre Law today to learn your next steps.

What DUI Means In Arizona

A blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher means that you are legally under the influence and therefore in violation of the law if you are operating a motor vehicle. However, you can still be arrested and charged with a lower BAC if you exhibit signs of being impaired by alcohol or drugs to the slightest degree. There are several classes of DUI charges in Arizona, and our Scottsdale DUI lawyer has extensive experience defending all of them, including:

  • Aggravated DUI – someone who commits a DUI with a suspended, revoked, or canceled license; someone who commits their 3rd DUI in 84 months; someone who commits a DUI with a passenger who is younger than 15 years of age, or someone who commits a DUI with an ignition interlock device and refuses to submit a BAC test
  • Extreme DUI – someone who commits a DUI with a BAC of 0.15% but less than 0.2%
  • Felony DUI – someone who commits additional violations while committing a DUI
  • Super Extreme DUI – someone who commits a DUI with a BAC of 0.2% or higher


The penalties for a DUI charge will vary depending on the type of charge you receive. You may have to:

  • Pay thousands or more in fines and fees
  • Have your vehicle impounded 
  • Have your license suspended, revoked, or canceled
  • Have to attend traffic school
  • Have to attend drug and alcohol education courses
  • Serve jail time
  • Serve community service
  • Be ordered to use an ignition interlock device 
  • And more.

The legal consequences can be devastating, but so can the impact on your personal life, which can linger for years. You may have difficulty obtaining a job in the future if the potential employer conducts a background check and uncovers your charges. Your current job may also be affected if your legal obligations begin to interfere with your work hours or responsibilities. Finally, you can expect your insurance rates to increase significantly following a DUI charge.

Experience And Precision Matter When Fighting DUI Charges

Many times, charges can be reduced or even thrown out completely when the defense is strong enough to cast doubt on the details surrounding them. Our Scottsdale DUI lawyer extensively reviews each piece of evidence against you for flaws, including law enforcement error, faulty test protocols and results, inferior equipment, and more. In addition, he will review the circumstances surrounding your arrest to get the most accurate picture of how the events unfolded. Were you, without a doubt, in physical control of the vehicle? Were there other reasons you might have been impaired at the time, such as nervousness or fatigue? If there is any weakness in the case against you at all, you can trust that we will find it and use it to your advantage.

I was accused/cited for DUI so I hired Javier Alatorre to defend me (I was under the legal BAC limit). When I first spoke to Javier, he treated me like a person and never made me like a criminal so I felt very comfortable with him. He was always available to discuss this case even though it dragged on for over 3 years (COVID). The end result was that he got my cased dismissed. I couldn't ask for anything better. I highly recommend Javier.

Attorney Javier Alatorre is very attentive, personable, and responds timely to inquiries. His confidence and knowledge of the judicial process is commendable and very reassuring. His understanding of a client's concerns and worries is notable and very much appreciated. My case is ongoing, but thus far, attorney Alatorre has proven to be very responsible, available, and invested in serving his clients.

Even though my case was in Bull Head City. I am more than glad I got with Javier. Im the type of person that don’t trust anyone. Believe nothing of what you hear and only half of what you see. Thats my motto. After a week of talking to every lawyer through out AZ I liked Javier the best. And was extremely glad I trusted my instincts. I love to gamble but not with my life. Trust me. Just call him

Javier helped me out not once, but twice in an exceptional manner. Javier was always on time and one step ahead of the process. He was also extremely courteous to the courtroom employees and could navigate around situations at ease. Not to mention he had pin point precision in examining details in both cases. Both outcomes in the two cases I had him for were more than advantageous. I highly recommend Javier for your next case!

Not only is he very knowledgeable, he takes the time and has the ability to explain all aspects of the case in simple terms.Javier draws on his own extensive experience as well as on his wide professional network to provide the best counsel across different specialties.
