How Does Representation from Former Prosecutors Affect My Case?

Former prosecutors provide the strongest criminal defense. For example, consider trying out a new dinner recipe:
  • One friend gives you a recipe they have eaten several times but never prepared themselves
  • Another friend offers a recipe they have prepared themselves several times and enjoyed

The second friend’s recipe is the most trusted. They know all the ins and outs of the recipe, from how to put the dish together to how it should taste at the end.

You deserve an attorney who knows how to prepare the dish and the best way to serve it.

Our attorneys know the complexities and nuances of criminal law. We understand how the prosecution prepares their case and what defensive strategies are the most effective.

We have a unique perspective on the prosecution’s methods and utilize that advantage in every case we handle.

Do I Need a Defense Attorney for a Misdemeanor in Arizona?

The most successful strategy to avoid a criminal record is to gain skilled representation immediately, including for a misdemeanor in Arizona.

While misdemeanors are lesser charges, they can still do life-long damage to your career and reputation. Having a criminal record strips you of certain rights and future opportunities. A criminal record can:

  • Cost your parental rights (e.g., visitation, child custody)
  • Prohibit you from the right to carry a gun
  • Bar you from certain occupations that require a professional license

Misdemeanor charges are too serious to risk substandard representation or none at all. Our criminal defense lawyers are here to help you put your life back on track.

  • Our established relationships with prosaecutors and judges often lead to more favorable outcomes for our clients

"Our experience with Suzuki Law Offices was nothing less than excellent. Rj and the rest of the staff were caring, ethical, innovative, and brilliant. We had never needed a lawyer in this capacity before so the whole process was new to me and my family. When we did have questions, the responses were always very thoughtful and thorough. They were able to negotiate my daughter's medical bills to a lower amount."
