Facing criminal charges of any kind can be a frightening prospect, as the penalties for a conviction can have devastating effects on your life in both the short and long term. Loss of job opportunities, expensive fines, and prison time are just a few of the possible consequences of a conviction. The goal of an aggressive criminal defense lawyer should be to try to secure the best possible resolution for the client, realizing that each case is different.  If it is not possible, then other options will be presented to the Client.
When you are charged with a crime you need an experienced Criminal Lawyer that is serious about defending you or your loved one. Don’t settle for an attorney who will simply hold your hand and walk you through the criminal justice system. Hire an experienced aggressive attorney who will fight for your rights.

  • Thorough—too many criminal attorneys take the arresting officer’s police report as the truth. I investigate, examine, and challenge the state’s evidence.
  • Knowledgeable—I am current on criminal law and use my knowledge to develop legal defenses and properly advise you.
  • Aggressive—I will research any and all legal basis in an effort to obtain the the best possible resolution.
  • Accessible—I am easy to reach by phone or email. I will explain difficult legal concepts so that you understand them.



This means do NOT answer any questions asked by the police. Just politely say “I want a lawyer,” and contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. It is important to remember that police officers are trained to investigate crimes and gather evidence to build a case against you. You will have plenty of time to make a statement later once you have consulted with your attorney. Remaining silent will NOT be used against you.


If you or a loved one is facing charges for any type of criminal offense, it is important that you seek the advice of a skilled Phoenix criminal defense attorney immediately. A conviction for any type of crime can have a devastating impact on your future, and the assistance of an experienced lawyer can help to ensure that your rights are protected.
