Tempe DUI Lawyer

Charged with a DUI in Tempe?

As Arizona's best-known college town, Tempe is well known for its nightlife and party atmosphere on Mill Avenue. Its bars are frequented by students at Arizona State University (with both real and fake IDs), and as with any drinking hotspot in Arizona, Tempe Police are constantly on the lookout for drunk drivers.

As a result, Tempe can be saturated with police, and it is very common for a partygoer leaving Mill Avenue or the surrounding area to get pulled over for suspected DUI.

Tempe's DUI laws are governed by the same criminal statutes for drunk driving that operate in the rest of the state. However, by being arrested in Tempe, you may be subject to local courts for processing your DUI charges, such as the Tempe Municipal Court or the Maricopa County Justice Courts that cover the Tempe jurisdiction.

If this has happened to you, get the benefit of speaking with a Tempe DUI lawyer at Salwin Law Group today. We have experience practicing in both the Tempe city courts and justice courts.

Tempe DUI Defense Attorney Representing College Students

If you have been stopped by Tempe or ASU police, get an attorney on your side that has experience with the Tempe Court system. Stewart Salwin is a former DUI prosecutor with extensive experience in prosecuting and defending DUI charges as well as accusations of underage DUI and drinking.
