Phoenix Municipal Court – Horrific single-person motorcycle accident DUI. Client left with lifelong body and brain injuries. Blood alcohol of .19 (that’s about 2 1/2 times the legal limit). Approximately 1000 pages of medical documentation. Worked very hard on this one (and client was a tremendously nice guy). Got a rare deviation to a first-time, slightest impairment DUI misdemeanor. 1 day jail. Prosecution really came in with an open mind, listened to my arguments, and agreed that he could share his story and its consequences in his life to the benefit of others. Good outcome for a good person and his family.
Result = Bad Extreme DUI motorcycle accident. Worked on extensive mitigation. Deviation request granted by prosecution to 1st time DUI (impairment to slightest degree). Client saved a lot of jail and $$$. Dropped to 1st time DUI impaired slightest degree
