Taking the Appropriate Steps to Protect My Clients’ Rights

Arizona law contains many restrictions on the ownership, carrying and use of firearms and other deadly weapons. As an attorney who has been practicing criminal law in this state since 2002, I have the experience to effectively defend clients against weapons charges, including:

  • Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
  • Carrying a concealed weapon without a valid permit
  • Carrying a concealed weapon where prohibited
  • Unlawful discharge of a firearm
  • Misconduct involving a weapon

I also have extensive experience defending clients who are facing heightened penalties for allegedly using weapons to commit violent crimesdrug crimes and other serious offenses.

As a trial-experienced former prosecutor, I am prepared to negotiate with the authorities on behalf of my clients and to defend them against their charges in court when necessary.
