Providing Zealous Defense to Protect Your Freedom & Future—Arizona Criminal Defense Lawyer

Whether you are under investigation or have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony in Phoenix or elsewhere in Arizona, the decisions you made regarding how to proceed can have a lasting impact on your life. If you are convicted of a criminal offense in Arizona, you may suffer very serious criminal penalties, including county jail, or state prison time, substantial fines and assessments, loss of driving privileges, community service, probation, counseling and other forms of punishment. 

Arizona criminal defense attorney Dianne Sullivan has over a decade of experience defending those charged with crimes from minor misdemeanors to serious felonies in Tempe, Phoenix and throughout Arizona.  Ms. Sullivan provides insider knowledge and expertise built on her time as a former prosecutor with a high conviction rate.  She uses her thorough knowledge of the litigation strategies of prosecutors and law enforcement investigative techniques to provide effective criminal defense to those charged with crimes in Arizona.

At the Sullivan Law Offices, we understand that when you face a potential misdemeanor or felony conviction it can disrupt virtually every aspect of your life.  If you are convicted of a criminal offense anywhere in Maricopa County, it may result in job loss, disruption of family relationships and long-term barriers to your academic or career aspirations.  Many people charged with a crime in the greater Phoenix area make the mistake of simply accepting whatever plea offer is made by the prosecutor through a public defender.  While this may satisfy one’s desire for closure, many times those who make this mistake do not consider the more long-term consequences of a criminal conviction.  Depending on the specifics of the Arizona criminal offense with which you are charged, the adverse consequences of a conviction may last long after you have served your formal sentence.  Some of the common long-term effects of a felony conviction in Arizona may include:

  • Damage to one’s personal and professional reputation
  • Disqualification from some professions, occupational licenses and financial aid
  • Risk of immigration deportation and other loss of immigration benefits
  • Loss of right to vote or possess firearms
  • Restrictions on where you may live or be present
  • Information available for employers and landlords during background check

Given the often debilitating impact of a criminal conviction in Arizona, there are far too many people that simply accept the first offer from the prosecutor through a public defender.  Given the enormous adverse consequences of a felony or misdemeanor conviction in Maricopa County, you should exercise your right to remain silent and contact experienced Phoenix criminal lawyer Dianne Sullivan.

At Sullivan Law Offices, PLLC, we provide extensive investigation, effective legal research and analysis, artfully drafted motions and persuasive courtroom advocacy.  Ms. Sullivan will diligently seek to have the charges against you dismissed or obtain an acquittal at trial.  If the case against you is compelling, Ms. Sullivan will expose the weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case to obtain the best possible plea agreement which may keep you out of jail and result in your participation in diversion or alternate forms of sentencing. 

Sullivan Law Offices provides diligent and persuasive criminal and DUI defense to those accused of felonies, misdemeanors and DUI/DWI.  Our Phoenix criminal attorneys can handle cases in Mesa, Tempe, Avondale, Goodyear, Glendale, Surprise, Chandler, Scottsdale or any court in Arizona.  We offer a confidential consultation absolutely free so call us today at 480-284-8740.
