- Arizona: Number One for Drunk Driving Penalties and Prevention
According to the Centers for Disease Control, drunk driving accounts for 31 percent of all automobile fatalities every year.
Fortunately, if you claim Arizona as your home, you are in the state with the toughest record on DUI enforcement and prevention. According to a survey from WalletHub.com conducted in all 50 states, Arizona is number one when it comes to enforcing DUI convictions.
If you or someone you love is injured by a drunk driver, do not hesitate to contact the drunk driving lawyers at Phillips Law Group for a free consultation to determine if legal action is right for you.
In Phoenix and other parts of the state, drivers guilty of a first offense get a minimum of 10 days in jail, and second-time offenders get a minimum of 90 days in jail. For a third offense, a drunk driver faces harsher penalties, including an automatic felony. While a three-month driver’s license suspension is required in Arizona, Wyoming stands out as tougher with a 90-month suspension.
No one who drives drunk asks your thoughts on the matter before you are injured. Drunk driving injuries are life-changing, even fatal. If you are victimized by a drunk driver, you need immediate justice but must seek redress through the civil courts. A criminal conviction is never enough to console you and your family.

Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
Phillips law group is the best around!
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
