Domestic Violence ~ Sexual Assault ~ Aggravated Assault ~ Sex Crimes

Jail time is a real possibility, but what may be even worse is that a criminal record can follow you throughout your life, making it extremely difficult to find a good job or housing and disqualifying you from financial aid to pursue your education.

You can lose your right to vote, hold public office, and own a gun, and your reputation in the community will be destroyed. After a criminal conviction, your life will never be the same again, so it’s absolutely essential that you do everything in your power to fight the charges, which means hiring the best Phoenix criminal defense lawyer you can find.

Success Stories

I hired Howard for my son immediately after the police came to our house asking questions and seizing his computers. I think the best thing we did was hire Howard and hire him before charges were filed for our son. Not only was Howard aggressive and proactive in the early stages of the investigation, but his long time connections with the prosecutors and negotiation skills helped to obtain an extremely fair result. This was a horrible time for our family and I know hiring Howard helped make it that much more bearable.

Howard was honest and hard working, and as the case progressed I found he was more than just my attorney he became a trusted friend. I publicly thank Howard for his time and for his advice in this process. I would suggest Howard to anyone looking for a good criminal defense lawyer..
  • Criminal Defense Client
I want to thank Howard Snader for the legal excellence and professionalism he provided as my attorney. His efforts helped us achieve the best possible outcome for my case. I was most impressed by his dedication and focus in tackling each small step along the way. His attention to detail and reassuring demeanor gave me confidence and calm, and he fully achieved all of our objectives. Howard, thank you for your excellent work, and I highly recommend you to anyone in need of exceptional legal services.
  • Criminal Defense Client
Howard represented me in a complicated white collar crime case. To make a long story very short, Howard was able to negotiate with the prosecution. He was able to resolve from 5 felonies (2 class 2, 2 class 3 and 1 class 5) into one undesignated felony, with no jail time (probation only).
  • Criminal Defense Client
Howard was hired to be my primary attorney on an unfortunate charge I was accused of. He showed myself and my family honesty, and true compassion for my case. He worked diligently and hard on my case. He came up with different plans of actions and always made sure I was comfortable with everything before he proceeded with actions or decisions on my behalf. After each court he brought comfort to my family with willingness to take some time to address and answer any questions/concerns they may have had. He also kept close communication with my wife and mother, to keep them in the loop on any new motions or hearings that was forthcoming.
  • Criminal Defense Client
Howard represented me on my last felony case involving organized retail theft on top of my felony probation violation. Howard was a fact finding hound and eventually the prosecution had to amend my case to a lesser charge. I was sentenced to the minimum and was out of prison only a week later. Thank you Howard.
  • Criminal Defense Client
During his representation I was incarcerated and I had peace of mind after he would brief me on whats going on with my case, and what to expect next. I was able to put my full trust in Howard and the work/research he was doing for my very complicated case. Howard was able to get my very serious charges dropped down to a lessor charge. Howard was my attorney for almost 2years, and without a doubt I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a true legal defense attorney, that wants justice! Howard is very passionate about what he does and will fight for your justice.
  • Criminal Defense Client

  • Criminal Defense Client
Mr Snader represented me in a criminal case; I was facing a Felony 2 with up to 10 years in Prison. Howard Snader was upfront and honest with me, not making any false promises to gain me as a client. He was the only attorney I visited that I felt was not just after my money. My case was closed just serving 15 days in jail with work release conditions. I was extremely happy with Howard Snader and highly recommend him.
  • Criminal Defense Client
From our initial consultation, we had complete confidence in Howard Snader’s knowledge and ability. His professionalism and manner assured us he was more than capable of providing excellent representation should we need it. We would not hesitate to recommend or use his services again.
  • Criminal Defense Client
