Tucson Felony Defense Lawyers

Felonies in Arizona

Conviction for a felony in Arizona will likely lead to incarceration in state prison rather than in your local jail. The fines for felonies are also significantly higher than misdemeanors, and it can be difficult to expunge a felony from your record.

Fight back against your charges with the trusted Tucson criminal defense attorneys at Your Arizona Lawyer. A mishandled felony crimes charge can quickly deprive you of many rights. If you are not a citizen, you might also be facing deportation as a result of a conviction.

We provide free consultations to all clients. Call (520) 467-5100.

Serious Charges Require Aggressive Representation

Being convicted of a felony can affect your future job prospects as well as your ability to find housing. Convicted felons cannot vote or carry a gun. Your criminal record is visible to the public, meaning anyone will be able to see that you've been convicted of a felony in the past.

For this reason, our team at Your Arizona Lawyer moves quickly and effectively to protect your reputation and your future opportunities against these accusations. We pride ourselves in client education and make sure you thoroughly understand your charges and how to fight them.
