If you or a loved one faces serious criminal charges, hire an attorney immediately to ensure the best possible result. Once you retain representation, your attorney will handle everything from routine paperwork to cross-examining witnesses in the courtroom. Your attorney will also lay out the best defense strategies for your case’s specific circumstances.

 

One primary reason for our success is the past experience of our firm’s founders, attorney’s Derek Oliverson and Jeremy Huss. Derek Oliverson is a former police officer, prosecutor, and judge. This rare combination of experience provides Derek with direct insight into all of the parties involved in a criminal trial. Derek is very experienced in police procedure and DUI investigations, and is one of the few attorneys that has testified in a DUI trial as a police officer, prosecuted a DUI trial, and also presided over a DUI trial as a judge. With this unique combination of experience, Derek is now protecting people’s rights as a criminal defense attorney, and provides invaluable insight to clients based on his well-rounded experience. Jeremy Huss is a former 13-year prosecutor with extensive experience involving the most serious crimes in Arizona, including homicide, child sex crimes, sex assault, drug trafficking, and all types of violent crimes. Also, Jeremy Huss has significant experience with DNA, ballistics, and fingerprint evidence. This experience provides our firm with a thorough understanding of the legal system and prosecutorial strategies. We know the tactics the prosecution will likely use, and we devise our legal defense to counter these tactics.

 

To bolster your case, your attorney may introduce evidence and interview witnesses, with the goal to create reasonable doubt that you committed any of the charged crimes. Your attorney may even present a self-defense argument if you are facing charges like assault, manslaughter, or murder, in which case you may argue that you had to use force to protect yourself.

 

When you consult a criminal defense attorney, you will discuss the options for your defense. Attorneys approach cases differently based on the specific facts of your situation as well as their own experiences, skills, and education.

What are the consequences of a conviction?

In addition to jail or prison time and fines, a conviction will become a permanent record that can surface in a background check. You may not be able to find a job or lose a job you already have. You may not be able to find an apartment, and a conviction may also affect your custody and visitation rights with your children.
