Phoenix Criminal Defense Lawyer

The public tends to disregard those who have been charged with a criminal offense and usually writes them off as criminals who are deserving of any punishment fit for them. However, an accusation does not make a person guilty. We live in a society that practices the presumption innocence, which is the principle that one is innocent until proven guilty. An arrest does not equal a conviction, and this is where an experienced Phoenix criminal defense attorney comes into play.
