Domestic Violence

When you have been accused of an act of domestic violence in Phoenix, get ready for your life to change unless you hire an experienced Phoenix domestic violence lawyer. Arizona courts take domestic violence charges very seriously and Arizona criminal law is very tough on those convicted of domestic violence. If you are charged with domestic violence in Phoenix, you will likely be charged with:
Along with these charges, you can expect to be barred from possessing a firearm, even if it is required for your job. It may also affect your child custody and visitation rights. Allegations of domestic violence are often false. The accuser is often the aggressor and the accused acted in self-defense. However, the system will usually favor the accuser leaving the accused feeling like they have been convicted without a trial. If you’re facing DV charges or dealing with orders of protection in Arizona, the right Phoenix criminal lawyer can make the difference between jail time and family time. Call us now to take action and defend your rights today.

Aggravated Assault

Under Arizona criminal law, assault is a misdemeanor. However, the enhanced charge of aggravated assault is a serious felony charge that comes with up to a 20-year sentence in Arizona state prison. Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is charged whenever any object that is potentially deadly is used to threaten or inflict injury on another. The aggravated assault enhancement is often added to other criminal charges associated with Arizona felony charges like
  • Sexual Assault
  • Robbery
  • Assault on a Police Officer
The aggravated assault enhancement can also be added if the assault was committed while an order of protection was in place. If you have been charged with aggravated assault in Phoenix, you need an experienced Phoenix criminal defense attorney to fight for you. We can defend you from violent crime charges, such as:

Sexual Exploitation of a Minor

Sexual exploitation of a minor in Arizona and sexual abuse of a child are serious felonies. Child sex crime allegations in Phoenix are particularly difficult to defend. The only witness is often the child victim, who are susceptible to the influence of others. The problem is the “others” may be an ex-spouse or ex-girlfriend seeking revenge for a bad breakup or other reasons. Bringing truth and clarity to a sex abuse case requires an experienced Phoenix sex crime attorney or you may end up spending years behind bars and a lifetime on the sex offender registry. Sexual exploitation of a minor, also known a possession of child pornography in Phoenix, is another Arizona sex crime that has serious consequences. In this digital age, your computer or other device is vulnerable to viruses and is often accessible by others who may introduce images or videos of people who appear to be minors engaged in sex acts. If your Phoenix criminal defense attorney has little or no experience in these types of cases, you are likely to be doing time and be required to register as a sex offender in Arizona. Don’t risk your freedom! Call us today to schedule a consultation and start working on your defense. We have experience defending clients from various sex crime charges, including:
