Aggressive Defense

Whether you face allegations for aggravated assault, domestic violence, are under investigation or charged in a homicide, or other violent felony crime, a conviction will impact many aspects of your life and your future. It will affect your freedom, finances, schooling, possible career choices, personal relationships, reputation in the community, as well as jeopardize certain freedoms and privacy that you may now take for granted. You need an attorney at your side throughout the entire legal process to protect your best interests and your constitutional rights, and who can provide an aggressive and creative legal defense. The valuable insight gained from extensive work prosecuting and defending cases in the Arizona state and federal court systems has proven worthwhile in formulating successful defense cases for clients. Past working relationships with judges and familiarity with the different procedures and strategies of the prosecution can work in the favor of the defendant. This background as a prosecutor assists in making the right decision about when to go to trial and when to negotiate with the prosecutor for the most favorable outcome in a violent crime case. Additionally, a former prosecutor has specific knowledge regarding the likely verdicts of certain judges, which way the courts are leaning, and the ways that individual prosecutors negotiate and what could be expected.

Challenging the Evidence and Procedures

Staying ahead of the prosecution is a large part of a well-executed defense. Careful review of the evidence presented by the prosecution and close attention to detail can reveal flaws in their cases and weaknesses that will not hold up against a challenge. Various areas to consider are the arrest procedure used by law enforcement. Did you receive the Miranda warning? Did police officers follow strict protocol when handling blood, hair, fiber samples or other pieces of forensic evidence? Was a search warrant valid? A former prosecutor will be looking into all of these questions, and has an exceptional ability to provide a high quality defense against all types of criminal allegations.
