Former Proven Prosecutor

A misdemeanor charge in Arizona can still result in serious consequences such as getting your driving privileges taken away and jail. Particularly if you are a minor charged with an underage DUI, you not only face potential fines, license suspension, juvenile detention and community service but the residual effects of a criminal conviction. A conviction will be on your record and can affect your ability to go to college, attain scholarships or obtain employment. These are serious implications that require the assistance of a skilled and active Phoenix criminal defense attorney.

Open Container Laws

Having an open bottle/container of alcohol in your car is a misdemeanor offense punishable by a fine of up to $750. A half-empty or even an empty container is cause for an open container ticket. The driver of a vehicle is not the only individual that can be charged. Passengers can be charged as well for having an open container in the car. If you have been charged with having an open container in your vehicle, I will provide an active defense to get a resolution in your best interests.
