We will fight to provide you with the best legal defense available, regardless of the crime you’re charged with or your criminal history.

Yes.

When you are arrested and charged with a crime, we understand you may feel overwhelmed, stressed, and worried about the consequences of a criminal conviction. The last thing you need to worry about is whether or not you can afford to hire an attorney to protect and defend your rights.

Accordingly, the attorneys at AZ Law Firm will always provide you with a free initial consultation. During this consultation, one of our attorneys will evaluate your case, inform you of any defense options that may be available, and allow you to ask any questions that you have. We also offer affordable rates for all of our clients and, if needed, payment plans. Our firm accepts cash, checks, debit cards, and most major credit cards to cover the costs of your legal representation.

We represent people with a wide variety of criminal charges, including (but not limited to):

  • DWI
  • Possession of Marijuana /Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • Drug Offenses
  • Public Intoxication
  • Assault
  • Family Violence
  • Theft Crimes
  • Traffic Violations
  • Minor in Possession / Consumption
  • Expunctions
  • Probation Violation
  • Violent Crimes
  • White Collar Crimes
  • Misdemeanors

Yes. We will work with you, if necessary, to create a payment plan you can afford.

During the free initial consultation, one of our attorneys will evaluate your case and provide you with a realistic assessment of how long it may take (and how much it may cost) to resolve your case.

Yes, if…

If the outcome of your case is one that allows for an expunction, we can 100% help you with that. If it doesn’t, we may be able to help with a non-disclosure.

While an expunction basically makes it as if nothing ever happened, a nondisclosure can hide certain offenses from certain agencies. Which one (if either) you qualify for depends on the final disposition (or outcome) of your case, and we’re happy to explain your options during our consultation once we have all the details.

It never hurts to have someone you can call if you think you may be in a bind. First, call us at (512)-400-7070 to schedule a consultation and discuss your potential needs. Then, we can discuss how having an attorney on retainer would be beneficial to you. Together we can decide how our attorneys here at AZ Law Firm are able to assist.

Of course! We recommend calling an attorney any time you or a loved one ends up in jail. Calling a bail bonds person will usually mean you lose your money since they can’t represent you afterward. When you call AZ Law Firm for jail release, the money used for bail will go toward representation should you choose to retain us as legal counsel. Obviously you have many choices in the area for representation, but we’re confident that after meeting with us you’ll be ready to take on what’s next with one of our attorneys by your side.

We’re here to help!

DWI

 

The very first thing you need to do if you’ve been charged with a DWI is: call an experienced criminal defense attorney. This is especially important if you’ve been arrested. Do not call a bail bonds person because any money you give them will be gone, but an attorney will usually apply the bond money to the cost of representation. We do.

You only have 15 days after your incident to request an administrative hearing for your driver’s license, so it’s important that you act fast. Our DWI attorneys know exactly what to do and when/how to do it to help you remain a legal driver—that includes assisting you with an occupational driver’s license when your license is suspended.

Yes. It will be suspended for at least 90 days (regardless of whether or not you’re subsequently convicted), but the length of time varies based on whether or not you refused or failed a breath/blood/field sobriety test, whether or not it’s your first time being charged with DWI, and other factors. Your license will probably be taken by the officer and you’ll be given a few pieces of paper with information regarding your rights and what penalties you face.

Plenty. First, no attorney can promise you any particular outcome. Don’t get swept up in stories of dismissals and waived enhancements. Every case is different and should be handled as such. We here at AZ Law Firm will go over the evidence in your case and listen carefully to the details from both sides to help you determine your best course of action. Depending on your situation, there may be several options available to you—deciding which one to pursue is always your choice. After your free consultation, pretty much all of your initial questions should be answered. There are many moving parts and time-sensitive pieces involved in a DWI case, but we’re familiar with all of them. Let us help you.

Drug Crimes

Drug offenses are among the most common types of offenses handled in courts across the nation, but there are harsh penalties imposed in the state of Texas on drug law violators. These penalties include jail time, imprisonment, fines, probation, and other court-ordered penalties.

  • Assault
  • Aggravated assault
  • Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon
  • Sexual assault
  • Family violence
  • Kidnapping
  • Rape
  • Murder

The consequences for each charge are understandably different, with the penalties being fairly severe upon conviction for violent crimes. It’s vital to hire an experienced attorney who knows what questions to ask, what evidence to look for, and who to interview as a witness.

Regardless of what happened, full disclosure during your initial meeting with an attorney is incredibly important, and we can’t stress that enough. Without the whole truth (and nothing but), it’s impossible for your legal counsel to build the best possible defense. There maybe something that seems insignificant but is a game-changer in court. Don’t let the prosecution get a leg up by shortchanging yourself and holding anything back—the conversation is privileged and stays confidential. We take that very seriously.

Whether or not you’re arrested for the charge, you’ll have about 2-3 weeks before your first court appearance. During that time, it is important that you find an attorney. Because the range of possible charges is pretty wide (from a class C misdemeanor to a first-degree felony), with the difference between consequences for a conviction of those charges being fairly significant in some cases ($500 fine vs. five years in prison), you want to make sure it’s the right attorney.

You want to be sure that the attorney you hire is familiar with the options, and isn’t afraid to aggressively pursue the best one for you. The details of your specific case are important, and scheduling an initial consultation is the best way to get started. No attorney can make any promises on an outcome, but we here at AZ Law Firm can draw on our experience and knowledge to point you in the right direction, and then fight with you all the way to your disposition.

We represent people with a wide variety of criminal charges, including (but not limited to):

  • Intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causing bodily injury to another, including the person’s spouse;
  • Intentionally or knowingly threatening another with imminent bodily injury, including the person’s spouse;or
  • Intentionally or knowingly causing physical contact with another when the person knows or should reasonably believe that the other will regard the contact as offensive or provocative.

As you can see, even threatening someone can be categorized as assault. There are so many variables and potential defenses when it comes to an assault charge, especially when you consider that there are different types of assault charges. Don’t let a misunderstanding or mistake become a permanent mark on your (or a loved one’s) record without a fight—call us for a free consultation today.
