I have worked both as a former prosecutor and defense attorney working for a successful law firm, I have experience on both sides of the criminal justice system. I have won cases through written motion practice and through trial. During my time as a prosecutor, I worked around some of the best defense attorneys in Arizona. These real-world teachers ranged from brash and flashy to smooth, experienced, and tough. Working from the inside, I learned how to prepare for trial while remaining open to the option of negotiating a deal. I learned to apply a tactful, prioritized approach to achieve the best possible outcomes for my clients.
My insight into the prosecutor’s mindset has also shown me what law enforcement’s priorities, inherent strengths, and hidden weaknesses. This knowledge is invaluable when my clients have no other option than to stand up at trial and fight for their freedom and reputation. I understand how prosecutors approach a defendant’s criminal charges, criminal history, and pre-trial behavior. Prosecutors often take pride in treating every case the same, even threatening significant punishment against an otherwise law-abiding person for a single criminal act. As you would imagine, prosecutors also use their powers to impose even greater penalties on individuals with prior criminal convictions. A skilled defense attorney can use the time between a criminal charge and trial to develop an action plan with their client to show the prosecutor that the defendant is remorseful, rehabilitating, and not a risk to re-offend.
