The Scottsdale Municipal Court (AKA Scottsdale City Court) is located near Old Town Scottsdale and the Ballpark in Downtown Scottsdale.With all the bars and restaurants serving alcohol on Scottsdale Road in Old Town Scottsdale, there are plenty of arrests due to DUI Task Forces concentrated in this area.Also, because Scottsdale is considered an “upscale” area, it is important that anyone facing a DUI charge protect themselves from the economic “needs” of the Scottsdale City Budget. It is no surprise that DUI Task Forces tend to occur very often in the Scottsdale Area, and many Scottsdale residents and visitors find themselves in Scottsdale City Court facing DUI charges, which can include:

Minor in Possession of Alcohol – Arizona Revised Statute §4-244(41)

Despite, or maybe because of, Scottsdale’s population, there are some interesting potential advantages to having a DUI charged in Scottsdale City Court, rather than a different city’s City Court.

The trick is, knowing your judge, knowing your prosecutor, and figuring out what is the best way to handle the case. This is a special feature of Scottsdale, but only in certain courts, and only with certain judges.

This is where experience and knowledge comes into play. A motion being argued in one judge may yield a different result than a motion argued in front of a different judge. More importantly, taking responsibility, if necessary, in front of one judge can be very different than taking responsibility in front of another judge.

One other potential benefit of a Scottsdale DUI case is the potential to get a plea offer for something other than DUI. Unlike some other City Courts, it is possible to negotiate down a DUI charge to something more beneficial, such as, possibly, Reckless Driving.

Again, this is achieved through experience, and knowing what to say and who to talk to.
This is why it is incredibly important to have an experienced DUI Lawyer representing you on a Scottsdale DUI case. When facing a DUI in Scottsdale Municipal Court, you want to have an Attorney who focuses on DUI Representation, not just some criminal lawyer who dabbles in DUI Law in between their shoplifting and assault cases.

DUI is a highly specialized area of the law, and it is important to have a DUI Attorney who focuses on DUI Representation
