In order to provide the best service possible ALL NIGHT ATTORNEY provides instant and around-the-clock access to a lawyer when you need it most. Facing criminal charges can be one of the most stressful, intimidating, and confusing time in anyone’s life. We recognize the potential impact that criminal charges can have on one's life, and just how daunting dealing with the Arizona criminal justice system can be.
Unlike other firms who claim to be 24 hours but connect you to an answering service or paralegal for purposes of screening the call, ALL NIGHT ATTORNEY gives you instantaneous access to an attorney when you need it most. Your call will always be answered by a licensed attorney
If you have been arrested on criminal charges, you are probably feeling anxious about the possibility of jail time, how much you will pay in fees, and whether or not you will lose your license. Retaining the services of an experienced Arizona criminal defense lawyer, however, can help reduce fees and avoid jail time. You may be tempted to use a public defender to represent you, but public defenders are notoriously overloaded with cases. Because they are government employees, they don’t work evenings, weekends, or holidays. Our firm is staffed with trained and experienced attorneys who are available 24 hours a day. And because we manage our own caseloads, we are always available to our clients. Before you go to court, however, there are a few things you will want to know about criminal defense law.
Whenever you interact with law enforcement, you’re expected to conduct yourself in an appropriate manner. This can keep you safe and help you avoid additional charges. But police officers must also conduct themselves appropriately, and the rules governing their behavior during their official business are much more stringent. When a police officer violates their own rules, it can create flaws in the prosecutorial case that can be used by your attorney to your advantage.
If you are being detained, the arresting officer must read you your Miranda rights before asking you questions. If not, your answers may be inadmissible. You may refuse to answer any questions that the police ask you. You can talk to an attorney before telling the police anything. For example, if you are pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving, some law enforcement officers may be inclined to ask you how much you had to drink, where you were drinking, and with whom. If this is in the course of a normal traffic stop, the officer does not have to read you your rights, but you’re also not required to answer those questions.
If you have been arrested, contact our office immediately, so we can begin building your case. We also work with bail bond companies and can refer you to a bondsperson, so you can be released.
We can help you with any criminal charges for which you have been arrested. Our attorneys are well versed in all areas of criminal law. Criminal charges fall into one of two categories: misdemeanors and felonies, each of which are divided into separate classes.
This is the least serious of all the offenses. It can come with up to 30 days in jail and a fee of $500. Class-three offenses often include assault, trespassing and traffic infractions.
Class two offenses may come with a fine of up to $750 and four months in jail. Typical criminal charges include assault, property damage, and reckless driving.
Class one offenses include such things as drunk driving, drunk and disorderly conduct, and shoplifting. You can get up to six months in jail for a class-one misdemeanor and pay up to $2,500 in fines.
Drug charges and resisting arrest are some typical class-six felonies in Arizona. They can carry fines of $150,000 and as long as two years in jail.
You can go to jail for as long as two and a half years for a class-five felony and you may pay up to $150,000 in fines. Typical class fives include theft and assault of a police officer.
If you are convicted of a class-four felony, you may face three and a half years in jail, probation time and fees of up to $150,000. Class-four crimes include narcotics possession, burglary, and weapons possession.
You can get almost nine years in jail for a class-three conviction. You may also get fines of $150,00 and probation. Typical class-three offenses include grand theft auto and trafficking of stolen property.
In addition to a $150,000 fine, you can get twelve and a half years in prison for a class-two conviction. You may also receive many years of probation. This class includes such crimes as Dangerous drug sales, child prostitution, and assault.
This most serious of crimes can result in life in prison or even the death penalty. Murder is the only class-one felony.
One of the most common criminal charges we deal with in our office is Driving Under the Influence. There are a few things you should know about DUI charges.
Whether it is your first conviction or your fourth, you will have to put an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. An IID is a breathalyzer that will not let you start your car until your BAC drops to the legal level.
If you have never been convicted of a DUI before, you will pay a fine of $250 and your license may be suspended for up to a year. In some rare cases, they may even put you in jail for up to ten days.
If this is your second arrest, you may get a suspension of a year and up to three months in jail. You will pay a fee of $500.
A third offense with two prior convictions may result in a four-month jail sentence, a $750 fine and a suspension of one year. If your BAC is over 0.015, the penalties you will receive in the state may increase considerably.
