Put Your Case in the Hands of a Former Prosecutor

When you work with a Phoenix criminal lawyer at Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C., you can benefit from the experience we offer as former prosecutors. Richard Suzuki, Matthew Bartz, and Brad Smith have all served as criminal prosecutors in Arizona. What does this mean for you? It means they know how the other side of the courtroom operates. When you are facing time behind bars, enormous fines, and a tarnished reputation, this is the level of experience you want on your side.

Attorney Bartz alone has handled thousands of criminal matters—ranging from misdemeanor offenses to complex felonies. Furthermore, Attorney Suzuki worked as a criminal prosecutor for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office and the Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Arizona. While there, he handled federal felony and misdemeanor cases. For this reason, you can trust that your case will be in capable hands when you turn to Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C. for help.

Don't Wait to Act When Your Future is On the Line

Some people think that it wouldn’t be worth the money to hire a criminal defense attorney. Instead, they turn their case over to a public defender. This is a decision that could make a bad situation worse. Public defenders juggle enormous caseloads, which means they may not be able to provide the level of attention you deserve. Don’t suffer any consequences that you would have otherwise been able to avoid; turn to us after an arrest to ensure your case is handled right the first time.

If you have been arrested in Phoenix, AZ, you have no time to waste. Contact Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C. now!
