  • If there is a conviction, I help my client avoid or lessen the many adverse consequences of a conviction.

My job is to see the case through my client’s eyes

Each client’s life is unique and affected differently by an arrest.  My job is to anticipate and minimize the consequences for each client and their family.

I have designed my practice as if I were the client

If I were the client, I would expect my lawyer to keep me fully informed as the case progresses, anticipate problems I might not be aware of and help me do whatever I would be required to do.  Because that is what I expect, this is what I provide to my clients.  Personalized Service, is solely my responsibility.

Mohave County DUI & Criminal Lawyer For Your Case

No one wants to be charged with a DUI or other crime in Mohave County, but should the need arise it is crucial that you have an experienced DUI and criminal defense lawyer on your side.  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 41 years of experience in day in, day out courtroom knowledge.

For DUI 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.

To get the best possible result in a Mohave County case it is important to have an experienced lawyer on your side who knows the legal and factual issues and who if necessary will go to trial.  Many misdemeanor cases, in particular, go to trial and therefore to get the best result you should have a lawyer represent you who has a track record of going to trial and not just doing guilty pleas.

My first goal always is to try to the case dismissed and explore every avenue to that end.  If it is not possible, I take steps to lessen the charges or any possible sentence.  If I cannot get a favorable plea offer for my client then often I go to trial.  Many defense lawyers tell their clients that unless they pay them a hefty trial fee they will refuse to take the case to trial.  I charge one all-inclusive fee and do not charge a trial fee because I believe my clients should not have to pay me an additional fee just to exercise their constitutional right to a trial.

If however a guilty verdict cannot be prevented I will then help you to understand and complete the many obligations imposed by MVD and by the court.  Even after sentencing, which is different than most criminal attorneys’ practices, I remain available to assist you with any problems which may come up.  If it is guilty I will be with you until the end – the end of all of your obligations.
