Arizona - Criminal Defense

A conviction for a felony or even a misdemeanor can spell serious trouble for your future. Not only can it show up on background checks, which are growing in usage, it can also affect professional licenses, scholarships, divorce and custody disputes, and your overall lifestyle. These effects can last long after you serve time at an Arizona State Prison or Maricopa County Jail, or otherwise fulfill your sentence. This is why it is critical to do everything possible now to secure a favorable outcome later.
