CRIMINAL DEFENSE CASES WE HANDLE
In Arizona there are six levels of felonies, with a class 1 felony being the most serious and a class 6 felony being the least serious. Sentencing ranges for a felony can result in anything from probation to a lengthy prison term. A felony conviction will result in the loss of an individual's civil rights, including the right to vote or own a gun.
Misdemeanors are less serious than felonies and generally do not affect an individual's civil rights if convicted. There are a few misdemeanor offenses that can result in the loss of the right to own a gun. Penalties for misdemeanor convictions can range from a fine, to loss of MVD driving privileges, court ordered classes, probation or jail time.
RESTORATION OF CIVIL RIGHTS
When an individual successfully completes the term of his/her sentence, in many cases the Arizona Legislature has provided a way to have the conviction dismissed and the civil rights restored. We have successfully helped many through this process as they work to get their life back on track, often times being able to restore a client's civil rights without the client ever being required to appear in court.
