Can evidence gathered by my lawyer for my defense in my criminal case be used to dispute my license suspension with azdot?
A few months ago, I was arrested and charged with DUI. I hired a lawyer and he has begun gathering evidence to present in court. I have also requested a hearing with azdot to dispute my license suspension. My criminal hearing is scheduled for after my hearing with azdot and so no verdict has been reached as of yet. Can I use evidence gathered by my lawyer to dispute my license suspension? I asked him, but he hasn't responded yet.
Maybe - it matters on the evidence you have in mind. What are you specifically thinking of?
Is there any way to reduce a suspended liscense for a minor underage drinking and driving charge?
I had court today and took a plea deal thay would dismiss the charges but would suspended my liscense for 2 years. The judge herself found it to be excessive and thought my liscense being suspended till im 21 would be more suitable but we did what the prosecuter offered. It's my first time offense and I haven't ever even gotten a ticket. I am 4 months away from being 21 and had a BAC of 0.03 and wasn't driving like a maniac I just was on a part of the freeway which slows down to 55mph when I thought it was 65mph as is the rest of the freeway. I'm concerned because I have college, work and an internship to go to and live far from all 3. A year I can handle but two seems a lot. I know people who have had only 6 months opposed to 2 years. Is there anything I can do?

I was arrested for a DUI and the charges were eventually dismissed. Will my insurance rate be raised?
I refused the breathalyzer when I was arrested and cannot get a license without an interlock system. The courts dismissed my DUI charges but the DMV now tells me I should have had a hearing within so many days of the arrest. I'm wondering if my insurance will be raised because my license was suspended?

I got my 3rd DUI within 7 years and my plea agreement is for a Class 6 Designated Felony. Is there a way to get an Undesignated?
My first DUI was in early 2010, 2nd in late 2011, and 3rd in April 2015. No accidents were involved, I have a perfectly clean record otherwise. I have a job and a house. My lawyer (a HIGHLY renowned DUI lawyer in Tucson) got a plea agreement from the prosecutor and the consequences have all been drastically reduced, except for the fact that it is a designated felony. I have 2 weeks before the hearing. Is there any way to re-mitigate the plea bargain to get it to an undesignated class 6 felony?

Can My wife or I still be charged for either DUI or Possession of paraphernalia for a not at fault accident over 1 year ago?
I was the driver of our motorcycle, my wife was the passenger. She, as the passenger, by default, had to wear the backpack with our personal property. The backpack contained drug paraphernalia among other non relevant personal items. My wife admitted to the paramedic only that "we had used heroin" earlier that day then slipped into a coma. She suffered severe brain injuries and was never interrogated by the police. Upon arrival at the hospital I was asked by a uniformed officer if I had used drugs prior to the accident. I denied it. No charges have ever been brought but would like to get our backpack returned with our personal items [sans paraphernalia, of course!] Where do we stand? Do I risk prosecution by trying to get our property back? FYI Both my wife and I are fully recovered! Amen!
Yes, possibly depending on what you are charged with and the statute of limitations. Call a local dui attorney for a...
