Criminal defense in Maricopa County can be especially difficult because of the tough zero-tolerance stance adopted here on many common offenses, such as drunk driving, methamphetamine crimes, and any violent criminal offense. Rather than accepting a guilty plea on a reduced charge on such cases, Maricopa County defendants must be prepared to accept the punishment for the offense alleged or make the best of their chance before a jury. And that’s where we come in.
