I agree with what learned AZ counsel have already said and wish to emphasize one thing. You absolutely have to have an experienced AZ criminal defense attorney to assist you, especially given your relocation plans.
If you retain a private lawyer, he or she will be able to appear for you at most if not all court appearances except trial. In terms of attorney fees, you'll need to contact the attorney directly to learn the fee. Such fees depend on the attorneys experience and qualifications.
It really depends which jurisdiction you were cited in. Some jurisdictions allow private attorneys to appear on your behalf for most court appearances, however not all do. Therefore, I would suggest consulting with a private attorney who has experience handling DUI cases in Arizona. With regards to cost of an attorney, these costs do not include court and penalty fees. With regards to the actual cost of hiring an attorney, I would advice you to consult several attorneys to see what their fees are.
