About me

Flynn has litigated all manner of criminal cases, from assault and domestic violence charges to drug charges, to sexual misconduct and murder cases. While at Gallagher & Kennedy, PA, Flynn worked to establish a DUI and Vehicular Crimes practice, and has litigated issues related to impaired drivers before the trial courts and the Arizona Court of Appeals. Since establishing that practice, Flynn has represented all types of licensed drivers, including those with specialized licensing and certifications, in a variety of vehicular matters including DUI, aggressive/reckless driving, aggravated assault with a vehicle, and leaving the scene of an accident cases.


Flynn represents professionals before their licensing agencies, in conjunction with parallel criminal allegations and in situations in which professionals are accused of violating the practice restrictions and standards of their licensing entity.

Flynn has extensive civil litigation experience in the trial courts at all levels of practice, and has litigated complex civil cases including racketeering claims, fraud, and unlawful shareholder oppression. Flynn is also retained frequently by family law attorneys to consult on issues involving the intersection of domestic relations law and criminal law.

Flynn’s knowledge of science and technology has allowed him to successfully litigate complex legal issues involving computer forensics, police technology, DNA analysis, mobile technology, surveillance, and toxicology.
