If you are facing serious drug crime charges in Arizona, or even suspect that you are under investigation, it is imperative that you seek qualified legal advocacy as soon as possible. Your freedom may be at risk, and the government's case will only get stronger the longer you wait. Because not all drug crime attorneys in Phoenix are qualified to produce the results you need, you will want to be certain the lawyer you choose has what it takes to make a difference in your case.

Whether you are facing drug possession charges or serious felony or federal drug crime charges, Suzuki Law Offices wants to hear about your case.

Aggressive Representation for All Types of Drug Offenses

Our founding attorney, Richard J. Suzuki, defends both first-time and repeat offenders against a full range of drug crimes related to meth, cocaine, crack, heroin or other controlled substances in state or federal courts.

These previous cases include the following:

Why You Should Hire a Drug Crime Lawyer

Drug trafficking and many other charges carry mandatory prison time upon conviction. Early intervention by a Phoenix drug lawyer can be critical. You may already be under investigation. You may be talking to undercover officers or confidential informants without knowing it. The prosecution can use anything you say against you. When you work with Suzuki Law Offices, we take immediate steps to protect your rights and attack the prosecution's case.

We examine every facet of the investigation, the arrest, and the search and seizure by exploring:

  • Did they have probable cause for the warrants or wiretap?
  • Did they exceed the scope of the warrant?
  • Is the government's informant reliable or willing to say anything to help his or her own cause?
  • Do the amount of drugs and the circumstances warrant intent to sell or trafficking charges?

Our team can help you find the answers to these questions and construct an aggressive defense for your drug crime.

Should I Accept a Plea Bargain or Go to Trial?

Our number one concern is to help clients avoid prison time and allow them to return to their lives and loved ones. First-time drug offenders may be eligible for diversion (including TASC drug treatment) to avoid a criminal record. This opportunity is usually available just once, making it vital for you to work with the right lawyer even if you have no criminal history.

If you have prior drug crime convictions or face more serious drug charges, we prepare for trial, but always probe for holes in the prosecution's case to expand your options. At Suzuki Law Offices, we exhaust every strategy to get charges dismissed, evidence suppressed, or to find bargaining chips to downgrade charges or negotiate lesser sentences.

Is Marijuana Legal in Arizona?

Contrary to what many people believe, Arizona has some of the strictest drug laws in the US. Even the possession of a small amount of marijuana can be classified as a felony. In fact, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, marijuana charges account for 56% of drug arrests in the state. While persons are permitted to use medical marijuana under the care of a licensed doctor as well as a program administrated by the Arizona Department of Health Services, persons can face severe penalties for violating Arizona marijuana laws.

What is Proposition 200?

Proposition 200 is a law created to protect the rights of those charged with numerous drug offenses in Arizona. This law guarantees lenient sentences for first and second-time offenders, but it is important to note that not all drug offenses qualify.
