DUI charges can take a toll on your pocketbook

If you're driving home from a night out with friends in Arizona and a police officer pulls you over in a traffic stop, life as you know it may never be the same, especially if you consumed alcohol before getting behind the wheel of your car. Facing DUI charges is definitely no small matter, even if it's your first offense. If police take you into custody, your immediate concerns may understandably lie in how to secure your release from jail and how to avoid conviction.

If you have been charged with a white collar crime, you may have all sorts of questions. Moreover, you may be unsure of which course of action to take.
