A criminal charge can have serious consequences even if it does not result in prison time. A misdemeanor will appear on one’s permanent criminal record. This will result in a person having to explain the charge whenever a background check is conducted. If you have been arrested and charged with a relatively minor crime then it is in your best interests to consult with an attorney regarding your situation. Call today to speak with a criminal defense lawyer.
Criminal defense attorney representing Arizona residents accused of misdemeanor and felony crimes
Navigating the criminal justice process is not a do-it-yourself process. This is true whether a person is charged with one misdemeanor, a felony, or has been charged with a number of various crimes. Our attorney frequently handles both single count cases involving relatively minor charges as well as more complicated charges that are frequently charged together. Cases which we frequently assist clients with include:
- Disorderly Conduct
- Criminal Damage
- Resisting Arrest
- Unlawful flight
- Minor in Possession
- Criminal Speeding and Reckless Driving
Many people do not realize that a single event can result in multiple criminal charges. For example, if an Arizona resident is accused of breaking into a private home and stealing something then they may be charged with theft and burglary. If they run from law enforcement prior to the arrest they may also be charged with unlawful flight. This means three separate crimes and a more severe punishment. In cases such as this Bretton Barber will do whatever possible to reduce the number of “stacked” charges against you so that you do not face an excessive sentence. Bretton aggressively defends all cases, whether you are charged with a minor misdemeanor, or face a more severe felony. Contact our office today. In addition to Phoenix we represent defendants in other Maricopa County cities such as Mesa, Glendale, Scottsdale, Chandler, and Gilbert. We also assist Pima County residents in Tucson.
Aggressive defense lawyer focusing on accessibility and communication
Bretton founded the Barber Law Group on the idea that everyone is entitled to a high level of legal representation. Many criminal defendants commonly complain that their defense lawyer does not stay in contact with them. Bretton regularly gives his cell phone number to clients so that they may contact him with questions and he often communicates with people outside of conventional business hours. We understand you are concerned at a time like this and the ability to contact your lawyer should not be an additional worry. Contact us today.
