If you have been charged with a crime, you probably have a lot on the line. Whether it's domestic violence, a sex offense, or a drug crime, you need help.

Being charged with DUI can be stressful and downright scary, especially when you've never been in trouble before. If you've been charged with drunk driving, you need serious legal representation. Driving under the influence is a very technical and specialized area of criminal law that few Tucson attorneys really understand. Our top Tucson DUI lawyer, who has handled hundreds of DUI cases over the last 25 years, from both sides, can help.
Domestic violence charges are treated differently than other types of charges in many courthouses in the Tucson area. Special domestic violence courts have become the norm, which puts defendants in an even more difficult position. A domestic violence accusation can truly change your life, so it's critical that you find an experienced domestic violence lawyer with many years of local experience.
Almost everyone uses a cell phone these days and a majority of these are “smartphones”. For most of us, it’s hard to imagine living without them. Not only do these devices provide us with phone service wherever we go, but they allow us uninterrupted access to text messaging, email, Facebook, a camera, and a whole…Read More
Hit and run charges, also known as leaving the scene of an accident, can occur when you fail to stop after getting into a car accident. It seems like a lot of these cases have been in the news lately and some of them are pretty egregious — like the woman who hit a pedestrian…Read More
The title of “domestic violence” carries some pretty severe connotations (not to mention legal consequences) that aren’t always warranted. After having been subjected to numerous public service campaigns and news reports regarding a number of high profile/celebrity cases, I think most of us are aware that domestic violence is a serious problem in our society. …Read More
Hiring a Tucson Attorney
Hiring a criminal defense lawyer to help you with a serious legal problem is not the same as buying a car or some other item. It’s not simply a matter of finding the lowest priced option. If you’ve been charged with a crime, you have a lot at stake. Criminal accusations are the kinds of things can change your life and a good criminal defense attorney can make a big difference in the outcome.
You probably feel a lot of pressure to get help fast. Lawyers who use high-pressure sales tactics and make false promises take advantage of that. It’s important to slow down and do some research before making any decisions about who will represent you in what may be one of the most critical times of your life.
Fortunately, researching attorneys today is a lot easier than it was only a few years ago. It should be relatively simple to find lawyers online by simply searching for “Tucson attorney” or searching for the specific problem you’re dealing with. For instance, you can find a lot of information about many types of cases just by browsing through this website. You can also google an attorney’s name to find out more about their history and qualifications.
You should not only check an attorney’s background and qualifications, but also look see if they are transparent with important information like the results they’ve achieved as a criminal lawyer. It’s also important to see what past clients have said about an attorney. Is this someone who is accessible, works hard, and cares about their clients?
Talk to at least two or three qualified criminal defense lawyers to see who you are most comfortable dealing with. Make sure you get to talk to the actual attorney, not just a secretary or paralegal. If an attorney won't even speak with you personally to discuss your case at the outset, it's unlikely that attorney will be spending much time on your case thereafter. It's also important to establish that the attorney you speak with will be the one handling your case, rather than farming it out to an associate.
Not all Tucson attorneys are the same, but with a little effort you can make sure you hire a good one.
