A History of Mental Illness, Now Charged with DUI?

Has your mentally ill family member been charged with a DUI? In Arizona, a DUI charge can mean time in prison, a suspended driver license, and even severe fines.  The Arizona Justice System won’t take into account your mental health history unless your attorney knows how and when to introduce it.

Dealing with a DUI charge can be frustrating because the consequences can vary widely.  A DUI can be a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances of the arrest and the charges.  The situation becomes more complicated if your loved one has been arrested and does not speak English. As a Spanish speaking attorney, Bernardo Garcia can offer advice to your family member in Spanish.

If your family member is facing DUI charges, speak with an experienced Phoenix DUI attorney today.  Bernardo Garcia can guide you through the process of DUI litigation and protect the rights of your family member, especially if mental illness is part of the picture.
