Top 5 Types of Criminal Defense Cases

Once a criminal incident has occurred there is little time to process what the next steps should be in your criminal defense.  Working with our team right after an incident will help you structure your defense based on what the charges are. It’s important to remember that you are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Above all, it is our job and professional duty to fight for your rights.

We believe everyone has the right to due process and we will proactively work to fight your case. 

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.  Now understood as acts of physical, sexual, psychological and/or economic violence. The distinctions will align based on the relationships between parties.
  • Drug Offenses – Drug offenses in Arizona classifies narcotic drugs, dangerous drugs, and marijuana differently. Drug crimes include possession, manufacturing, and distribution of classified drugs which have the potential for abuse and death.  Drugs like cocaine, methamphetamines, ecstasy and even prescriptions like Percocet, Valium, or oxycodone are classified as narcotics or dangerous.
  • Property Crime – Criminal damage is a categorized crime that burglary, larceny, theft, arson, shoplifting, vandalism, and destruction all fall into. 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. By intentionally threatening to commit bodily harm, the State considers that action assault by definition. Assault is classified as a credible threat or 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, can lead to a DUI charge.  Impairment is classified as being under the influence, to the slightest degree, of alcohol or drugs. Regardless if you are prescribed a legal medication, the act of operating a vehicle, if impaired, will garnish the same charges as illicit drugs.

As a result, the DUI Defense Team understands that different criminal charges require different guidelines.  Let us help you or your loved one with the most challenging situation you may face in your life. Call us at 520.222.2222 or click here.
