In Apache Junction, Az, no one wants to be charged with a DUI or other crime, but should the need arise it is crucial that you have an Apache Junction criminal defense lawyer to represent you, someone whom you can rely on who has the experience and capability to represent you from beginning to end. I have represented over 5,000 clients, and have more than thirty-six years of experience in the courtroom and at trial. It is very important that you speak to your attorney before you speak to anyone; if possible, you should call your DUI attorney prior to being charged.
For DUIs in particular, Arizona’s penalties are perhaps the most severe in the nation and therefore for anyone facing these charges it is important to hire a knowledgeable, experienced attorney to get the best possible result.
Apache Junction has two separate courts, the Municipal and the Justice Courts. It is important for you to hire a lawyer like me who is familiar with these two Apache Junction Courts, because DUI and criminal cases are handled differently in each court.
I personally will handle your case from beginning to end, and I am always available to answer any questions you may have about the progress of your case and our defenses to the charges.
My first goal always is to try to get your case dismissed, and will explore every avenue to that end. If it is not possible, I will next take steps to lessen the charges or any possible sentence. Sometimes we have no choice but to go to trial, and if that happens you will need someone skilled in front of a judge and jury, such as me with my background who has spent over 43 years arguing cases to judges and juries.
Still, sometimes a guilty verdict cannot be prevented, and I will help you to understand, plan for, and complete the many obligations imposed by MVD and by the court.
I know that you need to get back to your everyday life and understand that, while criminal charges must be dealt with, you have a life, family, employment and other obligations to attend to as well. I will try in every way possible to minimize the burden of the DUI or other criminal charges on the lives of you and your family. Even after sentencing, which is different than most criminal attorneys’ practices, I remain available to assist you with any problems which may come up.
Being the subject of DUI or other criminal charges is naturally stressful, but I will work to ensure the process is as less stressful as possible. I know that problems do not only arise during business hours, and believe in being there for my clients around the clock.
I will not charge a trial fee, there are no hidden fees, and I am always available to consult, free of charge. Further, I do not charge by the hour, but will give you a fair, flat rate; no matter how many hours I must put into your case, you will not pay any more than the fee we agreed upon.
