Mesa Criminal Defense Lawyers

A criminal conviction has wide-reaching impacts on those accused of the criminal act. Not only are they at-risk of losing their freedom, but often their family, their job and other integral areas of their lives are at risk as well. A criminal lawyer may provide the answers and defense you need. Our criminal defense attorneys serve clients around the valley and specifically in the Mesa & Gilbert areas.

The criminal defense attorneys at Fowler St. Clair in Mesa Arizona, carefully and thoroughly assess the criminal defense cases that are presented to them, with the goal of full assurance that they can defend their client within the parameters of the law and with their ethical code intact.

Arizona’s strict laws and well-earned reputation for tough law enforcement require criminal defendants to have bold, persuasive and knowledgeable defense attorneys on their side. Public defenders are a common choice for those facing criminal charges, but the fact of the matter is that public defenders often have overwhelming caseloads which leave them little time to devote to the thorough research needed to put together a strong case on behalf of a criminal defendant. Private attorneys like our defense lawyers do not have that problem.
