If you have been charged with a criminal offense in Arizona, you are at risk of losing your freedom. Arizona lawmakers have established some of the toughest sentencing guidelines in the country, and the criminal justice system does not favor the criminally accused. A successful defense against criminal charges requires experience, finesse, and an aggressive approach. At AZ Defenders, our team of Phoenix criminal defense lawyers are smart, effective, and recognized as being among the finest criminal attorneys in the state. We are the only law firm in central and northern Arizona with DUI and Criminal Law Specialists.

Who We Are

At AZ Defenders, we understand that people make mistakes. However, when an error in judgment leads to criminal charges, it is imperative that you are protected by an experienced criminal defense attorney. Phoenix criminal court is manned by some of the most aggressive prosecutors in the state, dedicated to securing a conviction – whether you are guilty or innocent. Your attorney must have the skills and resources to work within the system and produce positive results. Our team of criminal attorneys who are DUI and Criminal Law Specialists, have achieved many significant victories, including case acquittals, dismissals, reduced charges, and probation.
