Criminal Law FAQs To Consider

  • Why should I hire a criminal defense lawyer when I can use a public defender? A public defender can do a fine job. But a hired attorney will be very motivated and likely give your case the personal attention it requires.
  • What is the difference between a felony and misdemeanor in Arizona? Because the crimes are often more severe, convictions for a felony mean more jail time and higher fines. Arizona also uses a numbered class system which dictates penalties accordingly.
  • How can I get my record set aside or expunged? You will need an attorney for this. We offer expungement services and we are happy to provide information on the process.
