Being charged with a DUI in Arizona can take a large emotional toll. There are several steps a person can take to help them deal with the emotional toll. The first step is to hire a good DUI lawyer. An experienced and knowledgeable defense lawyer can answer many of the questions that come up and make everything less scary. When a person is charged with a DUI they have a million questions and not a lot of answers. Another step that will help with the emotional toll is to understand that things will get better. Many times my clients are being charged with a crime for the first time in their life. It is part of my job to help assure them that they will be able to move on with their life and that things will get better. Oftentimes my clients look back on the experience of being charged with a DUI and say they were more scared than they should have been.
