We advise every person who has contact with the police to avoid answering questions. The next step should be: contact a criminal defense lawyer. This cannot be stressed too much. An experienced criminal defense attorney can protect your rights and begin immediately to negotiate in your best interests.

Drug crimes: The penalties are increasingly severe for drug offenses — and police and prosecutors are aggressive with arrests and prosecutions. Do not take chances with your future. We can help.

Gun crimes: Talk to a lawyer experienced with firearms defense in Arizona.

Theft/fraud: The charges — and the penalties — can multiply.

White collar crimes: Fraud and embezzlement can be complex court cases.
