Below are the Top 5 most prevalent types of criminal cases we specialize in:

  • Domestic Violence – Most commonly seen as physical in nature, this type of crime does not necessarily have to be violent.  Domestic violence can include acts of physical, sexual, psychological and/or economic violence. These distinctions change based on the relationships between parties.
  • Drug Offenses – Drug offenses in Arizona are different for narcotic drugs, dangerous drugs, and marijuana. Drug crimes include possession, manufacturing, and distribution of classified drugs which have the potential for abuse and death.  The state classifies drugs like cocaine, methamphetamines, ecstasy and even prescriptions like Percocet, Valium, or oxycodone as narcotics or dangerous.
  • Property Crime – Criminal damage is a crime that can include burglary, larceny, theft, arson, shoplifting, vandalism, and destruction. Other examples include robbery or embezzlement.
  • Assault– Assault is the act of intentionally inflicting physical injury or unwanted physical or bodily contact with another person. The state considers intentionally threatening to commit bodily harm assault by definition. Assault can also be a credible threat or an attempt to cause battery. While battery refers to direct bodily contact causing injury.
  • Vehicular Offenses / DUI – If you are in physical control of a car while intoxicated, even if you’re not driving, it can lead to a DUI charge.  Impairment is being under the influence, to the slightest degree, of alcohol or drugs. Regardless if your prescribed you a legal medication, the act of operating a vehicle, if impaired, will lead to the same charges as illicit drugs.
