Phoenix Trial Lawyer Experienced in Violent Crime Cases
Most violent crimes carry a presumption of prison time. If prosecutors can prove "dangerous allegations" that heighten the charges, you may face a mandatory prison sentence.
It is critical that your lawyer have the experience and strategies to fight these charges to avoid a conviction or minimize the adverse consequences. Contact Suzuki Law Offices immediately if you are facing serious felony charges for a crime of violence.
Aggressive Defense by a Former Prosecutor
Free Consultation • 602-635-1369 • Hablamos Español!
Criminal defense trial lawyer Richard Suzuki represents felony defendants across the Phoenix metro area, Maricopa County and surrounding counties of southern Arizona. He has a proven record of favorable outcomes in a full range of violent crimes including:
- Aggravated assault
- Arson or destruction of a structure
- Gun crimes/weapons offenses
- Domestic violence
- Child abuse allegations
- Orders of protection
- Gang crimes
- Armed robbery
- Home invasion
- Rape/sexual assault
- First-degree burglary (occupied building or entering with a weapon)
Crimes that might otherwise be a high-level misdemeanor (assault, stalking) or low-level felony are charged as major felonies for any of the following factors:
- Deadly weapon — Using or even carrying a gun while committing a crime
- Dangerous instrument — A knife, baseball bat, beer bottle or anything on one's person or used against the victim capable of causing serious injury
- Serious bodily injury — Life-threatening or lasting injuries from a weapon or physical assault
Any of these dangerous allegations automatically escalates violent crimes to mandatory prison time, even on a first offense. Even in plea negotiations, the prosecution will usually demand at least the minimum prison time.
Aggressive Defense for These High-Stakes Cases
Richard Suzuki is an accomplished criminal defense lawyer, a former Deputy Maricopa County Attorney and a former Assistant U.S. Attorney. He uses his experience to gauge the strength of case against you and give you honest and knowledgeable advice about your legal options.
Mr. Suzuki explores all viable defenses to violent crimes, including self-defense or defense of a third party, mistaken identity and lack of intent to cause harm or commit a crime. He scrutinizes every shred of evidence, including forensic evidence and witness or victim statements, and every aspect of the arrest or search warrants, to find grounds for dismissal or suppression of evidence.
If the state's case has holes in it, but a plea offer would still send you to prison, he is prepared to take your case to a jury. If a trial is likely to result in a conviction and a lengthy prison sentence or hefty fine, Mr. Suzuki is an effective negotiator who will try to strike the best possible deal for you.
