You should never speak to law enforcement without first speaking with your attorney. If you are being questioned by anyone in law enforcement, just read the message on the back of the Attorneys for Freedom business card, then just shut up.

I hereby exercise my rights as enumerated by the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution and Article Two of the Arizona Constitution.

Crimes are divided into two different categories, misdemeanors, and felonies. Misdemeanors are less serious offenses and felonies are offenses that are more serious. Generally speaking, in Arizona, a criminal offense that could result in one year or more in prison is a felony. Felony crimes are considered more serious because they usually involve violence or present a serious danger to others.

In Arizona, there are six (6) classes of felonies, with class one (1) being the most serious. The class of the crime will also help determine the punishment for the crime. Crimes such as murder or rape will be more serious with harsher punishments than a crime involving simple possession of drugs.

Many factors will be used to determine what class of felony someone will be charged with such as if the offense was a first offense if a dangerous weapon or instrument was used, was the victim a child, and others.

Felony crimes can include:

  • Property Crimes
  • Gun Crimes
  • Drug Offenses
  • Sex Crimes
  • White Collar Crimes
  • Violent Offenses

The prosecution will most likely present factors that will be used to increase the charges to a more serious crime, these are called aggravating circumstances. A skilled attorney will present factors that try to put their client in a better light, these are called mitigating circumstances.

Being charged with a felony means that your freedom is at stake. If convicted, you could end up spending years or even decades behind bars. In addition, a felony conviction will be a part of your permanent record. This could affect your ability to get a job, rent a home, attend school, and more. Not to mention the social stigma that is attached to being a convicted felon.

If you are facing felony charges, you should consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer immediately. Having an experienced attorney could mean the difference between freedom and prison.

Dear Kate Pierce,I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to you for making... the decision to take Tim's case. From the day one, our very first phone meeting I knew that we had a chance at getting better solution for my brother Tim's self Defense case. Your expertise, prowess and your personality gave us confidence that you are the one who can help Tim. I am writing this letter to you to express my family and my sincere thanks for your professional representation on his Self Defense case in the court, however this was a very stressful and lengthy battle specially during pandemic, but you gave us the needed confidence to stay focused and positive and more importantly you treated us as a friend not a client. You did such a great job in all aspects of the proceedings. We were frustrated with the cancellation of court's appointments, Pandemic situation and isolation and afraid of discrimination because of language barriers and believe, but you stand strong and ended the battle and we are happy and thankful to you and your firm.In the end, it all worked out well. I appreciate your hard work and wishing you all the best.(The work of your heart, the work of taking time, to listen, to help, is also your gift to the whole of the world). Jack Kornfieldread more
