Scottsdale, Ariz. – Cinco de Mayo signals the start of summer fun each year. It also means DUI task forces will be out on Valley streets looking for people driving while intoxicated.
Last year, more than 500 Arizonans were arrested for drunk driving during Cinco de Mayo festivities – including 167 extreme DUIs. And while having a designated driver or calling a cab is the obvious safe choice, those arrested during Cinco de Mayo last year failed to use either option.
DUI charges in Arizona are a serious matter. Even a first offense carries mandatory jail. That’s why such cases require experienced Arizona DUI defense lawyers, according to Scottsdale law firm Corso Law Group.
The firm’s attorneys have extensive Arizona DUI defense experience, having previously prosecuted DUIs, DWIs and OUIs for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, City of Mesa Prosecutor’s Office and City of Glendale Prosecutor’s Office. Combined, Corso Law Group lawyers have handled more than 15,000 DUI cases as prosecutors and defense attorneys.
“An Arizona DUI conviction means mandatory jail time, which makes it imperative to have an experienced DUI defense lawyer on your side,” said Christopher Corso of Corso Law Group. “Plus, the fines for a DUI can be severe, with the court requiring you to pay to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle.”
