In the above scenario, there are two pieces of good news:
- You’re no longer in danger of going to jail. The criminal charges have been dropped, and now it’s only the civil side of the case that remains.
- If I’m your attorney, you’re in great hands. After all, I have a rare combination of knowledge in both criminal and civil law. This means that I can defend you from both the criminal and civil charges that the State of Arizona and/or the federal government have to offer.
Civil Charges I’ve Successfully Defended
In my criminal law practice, I take both criminal and civil possibilities into account when I represent someone in trouble with the law. That’s why I have been able to successfully defend a number of clients facing serious criminal and civil charges. On the criminal side, these include drug crimes, violent crimes, sex crimes, murder, and crimes as a law enforcement officer; on the civil side, I’ve covered civil theft, wrongful death, and related personal injury lawsuits.
For instance, in the last decade, I defended two U.S. Border Patrol agents first from allegations of murder and later from wrongful death lawsuits brought on by the victims’ family members. In both cases, I was able to protect my clients from the civil and criminal penalties because I am well-versed in both sides of the law.
Civil Lawsuits I've Helped Clients File
Although I am, at my core, a criminal defense attorney, I am also a trusted resource for those looking to file a civil lawsuit in Arizona. For example, I've worked closely with victims of violence, personal injuries (such as car accidents, slip and falls, and medical malpractice), and other civil injustices. Don't hesitate to contact me if you've been wronged and need help taking legal action against the person who caused you harm.
If you’re facing a criminal and/or civil lawsuit and aren’t sure where to turn, I urge you to give me a call. My experience is at your disposal, and initial consultations are free of charge.
