Have you been charged with a crime in Phoenix?
The city of Phoenix ranks 10 on a crime index where 100 is the safest, and there are 48.14 annual crimes committed per 1,000 residents. Local law enforcement agencies are tough on crime, and are known to use aggressive tactics to secure a conviction. It is true that law enforcement may have extensive evidence against you. It is also true that they may lie to you during questioning, claiming that they have a witness who will step forward to testify to your guilt.

Even if formal charges have not yet been filed against you, you may benefit greatly from having a legal professional to intervene on your behalf with investigators and seek to prevent an arrest or filing of charges.
When you have been charged with a crime, it is easy to feel confused, distressed and even embarrassed. You deserve hard-hitting legal defense and experienced counsel to help you find a way out of the criminal justice system.

Key Areas of Practice: Criminal Defense
Whatever charges you face, an experienced criminal lawyer from our firm can provide you with the aggressive representation you need. Our attorneys work on a wide range of cases, from drug possession to
federal charges, and we take on
felony cases in city, state, federal and
juvenile courts. Don't make the mistake of thinking that you can resolve the situation by explaining yourself to investigators or in court.
The police already believe that you committed the crime, and anything you say will be used to add to the evidence against you. For example, if are accused of assault and battery and claim that you hit the other person in self-defense, you have confirmed both that you hit the other person and that you were at the scene of the crime. By placing the burden of proof on the prosecutor, an attorney from our firm may be able to exonerate you or have the charges dropped.
We are prepared to take on any case, no matter how challenging. Contact us whether you are accused of kidnapping,
white collar crimes such as
fraud and embezzlement,
weapons charges and
gun crimes, a
animal cruelty or
false reporting. Our legal team can help if you have been accused of a
probation violation and can also assist you with any type of
traffic offense in the Phoenix area, ranging from running a red light to racing.
The aggressive defense of sex offenses is an important part of our legal practice. The nature of a sex crime alone may cause other attorneys to turn away, but we strongly believe in every defendant's right to legal counsel. We have the tenacity and resources to take on all kinds of sex crime cases, including those related to child molestation,
failure to register as a sex offender,
dangerous crimes against children. Allegations of this type can have a devastating effect on your reputation—even if you are not convicted—but we will take immediate action to limit the damage and defend your future.
Arrested for drunk driving in Phoenix, AZ?
Many of our clients—people who have never before been accused of a crime—come to us for help with drunk driving charges. The State of Arizona does not take this crime lightly and is vigorous in prosecuting anyone who stands accused. If you have recently been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, don't think that you have to plead guilty based on the fact that there is evidence against you—we may be able to have the charges dismissed or to exonerate you entirely.
No matter whether you are facing charges for an Extreme DUI,
Super Extreme DUI or even if you have
multiple DUI convictions on your record, you can have confidence in our ability to defend your legal rights. An attorney from our firm will review the situation to determine the most effective strategy for your case, such as seeking to invalidate the
breath tests and
field sobriety tests which form the evidence against you in the criminal case, as well as fighting for you in the
MVD hearing. When you are facing potential
DUI penalties such as a driver's license suspension, imprisonment, fines and the possibility of mandatory installation of the
ignition interlock device (IID), you owe it to yourself to do everything you can to defend your future.
