"Mr. Precht helped me tremendously after receiving a DUI charge from the City of Phoenix three months after an accident. I was given morphine and promethizine at the hospital. When the blood was drawn apparently it showed high levels of narcotics. I suffer from severe migraines, fibromyalgia and myalgia. I had not taken any pain medication in over 12 hrs. I had a severe concussion upon leaving the hospital. I lost my job working for the state and my husband and I were terrified of what could happen. We found Mr. Precht and we were both thankful for the case being dropped!!! Being a paralegal I knew what could of happened. Again thank you!!!! Brenda R"
DUI Charge, 2013-04-25
"I am from Buffalo, NY. My sons currently reside in Arizona, the youngest was arrested and faced 3 felony charges. I was very afraid he would end up in prison at the age of 23! I immediately got a flight to AZ and together with my oldest son we we forunate enough to get an appointment with Attorney Precht immediately. He was as helpful as he could have been considering we didn't have a great deal of information to give him. His fee was reasonable, and he was willing to work with me regarding payment arrangements. Needless to say I had to return to Buffalo; but Mr. Precht and I kept in touch via email and phone conversations. The case was difficult to say the least, and the nature of the crime was violent. I'm sure I stressed him out, because I was so worried about my son! This incident occured in April of 2011 and my son was home to enjoy his Thanksgiving dinner with family in AZ. I can not thank Mr. Precht enough for everything he tolerated and did to help us"

"I had Precht represent me and he did better than I could imagine"
The first thing is that I am a sole practitioner, not a big firm, with a big expensive overhead. That means I have the ability to charge lower legal fees. In fact, I have been told by clients that my fees are the best that they heard, when shopping for an attorney. What you see is what you get. When you call my office you will speak to me. When you have a court hearing, I will be your attorney. You will receive personal representation, and not be treated as just another case.
Obviously price is important, especially during these tough financial times but a person wants more than just a low cost attorney. Experience counts! With my Law office, you will not just get low cost legal representation, but an experienced lawyer. I have been practicing criminal and DUI law for 18 years, and have handled thousands of cases successfully. I have practiced in all the justice courts, city courts and superior courts in the State of Arizona. I can say that I know the system.
Once a charge is filed, the State begins its case against you. There may be important time limits in filing defenses and motions. Having the assistance of a defense lawyer will help to minimize your exposure to potential problems and defend your case during the sometimes speedy legal process. Although I can help one at any state of his or her’s case, it is always better, if possible, to get a lawyer going early on during the process.
I accept all felony cases and can defend any felony charge one might have. This includes all drug offenses, theft cases, domestic matters, assaults, and even juvenile matters.
Yes I can. Often a parent will call me to help assist with a juvenile matter involving their son or daughter.
Obviously, it depends on the charge and whether or not a person has prior felonies. In addition, if the defendant is on probation or parole, the State will come at them with tougher penalties. Probation or even prison may be what the State is seeking on your felony case. Therefore, getting an experienced lawyer who knows the system and laws of Arizona is important. Time is critical in these cases as one should have a criminal defense lawyer by their side as soon as possible. Most people know this but often wait too long before hiring a lawyer to help. The sooner the better in my opinion.
It is always wise to have a lawyer by your side to defend your dui or criminal charges. The laws in Arizona can be harsh. For example, receiving a misdemeanor Dui offense could result in mandatory jail. The Dui Laws state that:
An ignition interlock device hooks up to your vehicle's ignition system and requires you to pass a BAC test before you can start your vehicle and drive.
You will be required to have an ignition interlock device installed for any DUI offense in Arizona.
For more information, please contact the Arizona MVD or your court.
For a list of approved ignition interlock installation companies, please visit the Arizona Motor Vehicle Division website.
After you complete the requirements of your criminal court sentence and wait out the duration of your driver's license suspension or revocation, you'll need to reinstate your Arizona driver's license.
Your reinstatement requirements will vary depending on your specific circumstances, but you'll typically need to:
For more information about some of your possible reinstatement steps and requirements, please contact The Law Office of Robert W. Precht for more details.
A DUI attorney not only knows how the Arizona court systems works, but also has special expertise in DUI cases.
A DUI isn't like a general traffic violation, such as a speeding ticket. If you're arrested, you'll be charged with a crime and must appear in a criminal court. The state of Arizona takes DUI charges seriously, and you'll be faced with several penalties if you're convicted.
Hiring a lawyer can help guide and advise you from arrest to resolution.
It's entirely imperative to locate a lawyer as soon as poosible so the time spent can be building your defense case. Contact The Law Office of Robert W. Precht right away for a consultation and decide if you need a lawyer to represent you.
DUI convictions not only cost you a lot up front; they also cost you money in the long run.
In addition to bail, fines, and other common court costs, you'll also have to pay:
The list of expenses and the strength of BAC evidence may deter you from hiring a DUI attorney.
However, even if a lawyer can't help you avoid a conviction, they can save you time and money in other ways, such as:
Overall, your lawyer's expertise can keep you from making mistakes that could cost you even more and give you the confidence that your case is being handled in the best way possible.
Your personality type and your genetics may put you at high risk for driving under the influence (DUI, DW!, DWAI, OUI etc) violations and their serious ramifications. But, just because you might be predisposed to having problems with alcohol doesn't mean your destiny is certain.
Being aware of how alcohol affects you personally can help you make good choices; you will learn about this in your driver's education courses. Using common sense can keep you out of trouble, too.
And, always be mindful of the following:
Most of us have heard the phrase personal injury, but many people may not be sure exactly what it means. A personal injury refers to a situation where someone has been physically or emotionally injured or killed by the wrongful act of another.
A personal injury claim is when the individual harmed wants to get money from the person or company that wronged them as compensation for the harm. This claim may be for negligence, which simply means the injured person claims the wrongdoer was careless. Automobile accident cases are the classic example of negligence claims. Another example is a slip or trip and fall which is called premises liability.
If the carelessness is committed by a professional, such as a doctor, lawyer or accountant, it is called professional malpractice. As you might guess, products liability refers to harm caused by a defective product. Finally an industrial or worker’s compensation claim is one for injuries or death which occurs on the job. Unlike other personal injury claims, the person making the worker’s compensation claim need not prove anyone was at fault or careless in order to recover worker’s compensation.
Personal injury law says that if someone else carelessly causes an accident they can be responsible to pay medical bills, as well as any pain, discomfort, emotional harm, lost wages or physical limitations which are the result of the accident.
Expenses for medical bills and lost time from work are usually easy to calculate down to the penny. However, a compensation for pain, scarring, emotional harm, or physical limitations - both short and long term - are not so easy to calculate. For these items you, your lawyer, insurance companies and sometimes juries must decide the fair and reasonable amount of money that will compensate for your injuries and harms.
Remember, however, that the other person may not have any insurance, or enough to pay the bills. Also, sometimes there may be a dispute as to who was at fault or whether all the injuries and treatment are directly related to the accident. That’s why it’s usually best to first submit your bills through your own health insurance. A lawyer can advise you on questions of fault, available insurance coverage and who is responsible to pay for these things as well as whether your health insurance, treating doctors or hospital have a right to a share of your claim.
Although you are not required to have an attorney to make a personal injury claim or to negotiate with an insurance company, an attorney can help you to understand your legal rights. If you caused an accident or may be responsible for someone else's injuries, an attorney will usually be hired by your own insurance company to represent you depending on the type of claim and coverage. Regardless, if you are in an accident you should always immediately contact your own insurance company and tell them what happened. This is true whether you think you were at fault or not.
If you are unable to agree on an amount to settle your claim with the other person(s) or their insurance company, you must file a lawsuit to protect your rights. For most negligence cases in Arizona, you must file the lawsuit within two years of your injury. Be careful, though, because some deadlines can be as short as six months. There are different requirements for making a claim against government agencies, or if you were hurt on the job.
Some lawyers charge their clients based upon how many hours they work on a matter for their client. Others charge a set amount for handling specific types of problems. Most personal injury lawyers are paid a percentage of the money you ultimately obtain as part of a settlement or trial. This is called a contingency fee.
The way this usually works is the lawyer agrees to bring the claim and do his/her best to get a satisfactory settlement. If a settlement cannot be reached, then the lawyer will take the case to trial and ask a jury to decide what the client should be paid. At the beginning of the case, the client agrees that the lawyer’s pay will come out of the money he actually gets for the client; an agreed upon percentage of the amount collected. Once money is obtained for the client the lawyer then takes that percentage of the money collected.
The client and lawyer also usually agree at the beginning of the claim that the lawyer will pay all the litigation related costs of the case until money is collected for the client. At that time, the reimbursement of those litigation costs, in addition to the contingency fee, comes out of the money collected for the client. These litigation costs may include filing fees at the court house, costs for investigators, expert witnesses and the cost of obtaining medical records. These costs are separate and different than attorneys’ fees. Fees are to pay the lawyer for his/her time, skill and effort. Costs cover expenses the attorney had to pay up front to advance a personal injury claim to a settlement or trial.
Finally, it also is usually agreed at the beginning of a case that if the lawyer does not succeed in getting any money for the client, then the client will not owe any fees at all to the lawyer. Fees in a personal injury claim almost always depend upon the lawyer being successful in obtaining money for the client. The client, however, may still have to repay the lawyer for costs associated with the personal injury claim.
One of the best ways to find a lawyer is to get a referral from a trusted friend or family member. Ask questions such as “How did you know the lawyer? What kind of matter did the lawyer handle for you? Was the lawyer prompt and attentive to your needs? Were you satisfied with the result?” If you already know a lawyer you should ask that lawyer what her specialty is. Most lawyers practice in particular areas and you may find it wise to hire a lawyer who specializes in personal injury.
