Am I Eligible for Probation on a Drug Charge | Arizona

Max Hanson

 

Whether or not that you’ll be eligible for probation for a drug offense is going to be dependent on three factors. The type of drugs involved, the amount of drugs involved, and also whether there were any indicators that you had intent to sell the drugs involved. When were dealing with smaller amounts and certain drugs, such as marijuana, you may have a statutory right to probation for a first offense. If we’re dealing with a drug, such as methamphetamine, you’re likely going to be facing a jail term and not be eligible for probation, depending on the circumstances of the offense. Anytime that there’s an indication that there’s an intent to sell, you will not be eligible for probation for that type of offense. That’s why it’s important to have a strong, experienced attorney that has handled these types of cases. If you or a loved one have been charged with a drug offense and you have these questions, feel free to give me a call at (480) 994-8824 or email me.

To find out if you’re eligible for probation on a drug charge in Arizona, please contact an Arizona criminal attorney.

What is the Legal Limit to Drive in Arizona?

Max Hanson

 

The legal limit to drive in Arizona without facing a DUI charge, as far as blood alcohol content, is a .08 or below. Then you’re within the legal limits if you’re a .08 or below. Above a .08, you’d be considered driving under the influence or DUI, but even if you’re under a .08 and within that safe range, you can still face a DUI charge if somehow alcohol or other drugs impaired your ability to drive in the slightest degree. So, if you’re involved in an accident after having a couple drinks, you can still be charged with DUI, even if your blood alcohol content is within that legal limit of .08. If you or a loved one have been charged with DUI, please give me a call at (480) 994-8824 or email me.

What are the Consequences of a Domestic Violence Offense | Phoenix Criminal Law

Jared Allen

 

Domestic Violence in Phoenix

What are some consequences for a person convicted of a domestic violence offense? Well, that’s a good question as well. At AM law, we found that some of the consequences that our clients have been facing, aside from just the conviction in itself, which can make life very difficult when you’re talking about applying for a job, even applying for loans and credit, that type of thing can come up and be a hindrance to people.

Right to Bear Arms

Specifically with domestic violence, the right to bear arms, to own a firearm or some type of weapon after having been convicted of that offense is going to be restricted. You’re not going to be able to do that and that’s obviously a concern for individuals who are concerned about their own safety in their homes and the defense of themself and their family members, if they were someone that felt a firearm was one of the ways they felt protected.

Monetary Consequences

So, that can be one of the more significant consequences for an individual in a domestic violence situation. And again, the consequences of being incarcerated, whether it be in jail or prison, depending on the level of offense are obviously very serious and there’s monetary consequences as well. Typically, domestic violence offenses come with mandatory fines; sometimes the cost of probation can be a burden for individuals.

So, these are all the things that when we are trying to negotiate a resolution in a domestic violence offense we’re trying to be considerate and conscious of those potential issues for our clients before entering into a resolution.

How Important is it for a Criminal Attorney to Have Trial Experience | Phoenix…

Jared Allen

 

Importance of Trial Experience in Phoenix

Is it important for a defense attorney to have actual experience in trial? I think it abolutely is. The shear volume of trials that we’ve done has provided us with tremendous experience, however, it’s really quality over quantity is how I look at it.

Both Steven and I have done very specific types of felony trials, misdemeanor trials, all the way down to citations and traffic offenses in our career as prosecutors and that’s translated to the same type of success that we had as prosecutors and now translated as defense attorney as well. When you’re familiar with how a courtroom is run, how juries respond to the type of information that’s being presented to them, that is valuable in not only presenting at trial, but in negotiating a resolution for your client.

One of the things we try to avoid at all costs is going to a trial, because we don’t want to put that decision in somebody else’s hands as to how this case is going to resolve. But, because we know how to do good trial work, we do good pre-trial work and we’re able to get the results we’d like to get after a trial at an earlier stage where the risk is much lower.

Max Hanson - Profile Video | Arizona Criminal Defense

Max Hanson

 

My name is Max Hanson. I’m an Arizona attorney and I practice primarily in criminal defense and family law. Well one, I’ve been doing this for seventeen years here in Arizona. I’ve basically appeared in almost every court in the state, including every county and superior court in the state and probably most of the little tiny courts. I believe in being upfront and honest with clients from the get go. I tell clients I’m a straight shooter and I really believe in that. They need to know what the risks are and what the benefits are to any particular goal or path they want to pursue as far as a case or in litigation. The client should expect that I’m going to work hard for them, that I’m going to put in the effort and time it takes to resolve a case. I try to be effective for clients and by effective I mean, not only doing what needs to be done as far as the work and working hard for them, but doing that in a way that is the most effective both cost and time effectiveness. I’d like to be perceived by my clients as honest, reliable and effective for them. Basically, all of the things they’d really like to have in an attorney that nobody thinks they have.

The highest compliment I ever get from clients is, they tell me some sort of horrible lawyer joke or story that lawyers are awful, oh except for you. When you come in to see me, your gonna come into my office and I’m going to point you to my bookshelf and you’re gonna see on that shelf, over the last twenty years, I have numerous thank you cards. Hand-written thank you cards from clients, thanking me for my service to them. They took the time to hand-write a thank you card and send it to me. I think that speaks about what type of practice I have and what type of lawyer I am and what I’ll do for you. If you’re running into legal problems or you need the advice of a legal professional, feel free to give me a call at my office at (480) 994-8824.

What to Consider When Choosing a Criminal Attorney | Phoenix, AZ

Jared Allen

 

Choosing a Phoenix Criminal Attorney

Jared, why should a client consider AM Law? I think that at AM Law, we obviously offer the payment plans that we’ve discussed earlier and we’re flexible with those, but when it comes down to choosing a defense attorney, we’re a firm that provides personal service and that’s what we really pride ourselves on. While we have a support staff that may take calls and may provide us with some assistance in handling cases, they are not the individuals that our clients are going to be talking to about their case.

Allen & Meyerand

So, we feel at AM Law the primary difference that we provide is two attorneys with tons of experience, but those same two attorneys are the people that talk to you, talk to you about your cases, talk to you about what’s going to happen at court, meet you at court and then ultimately, prepare and get the case ready for trial, if necessary. So, I think that what sets us apart is that we’ll be there for every step of the way, not just the steps at the end.
