BEST LAWYER
Andrew was very professional and didn’t waste time. He gave me a quote that was very reasonable. He let me know all the details and times for everything. Get this man if you want the best possible outcome for your case

Tenacious Lawyer that made a lasting impact!
One thing I never expected to find in a law firm is someone who was as deeply committed to my case and its outcome as I was. Andrew really showed so much patience and compassion while also being what I would call an absolute Bulldog during negotiations which worked out heavily to my advantage. Honestly I don't think many lawyers, especially criminal defense ones, would have have put in the amount of time and effort I saw from Rising Phoenix. When you need someone who will listen to you and make solid decisions based on your individual case, Andrew didn't let me down, I know he won't let you down either.

Amazing!
Mr. Long was an incredible lawyer for me. It was my first trouble with the law so I did not understand most things but Mr. Long helped me with every step of the process and explained any questions I had. He was readily available and amazing with reassurance. I highly recommend Andrew Long to help you.

Best possible outcome thanks to Andrew!
Andrew was an incredible lawyer throughout the entire process. I received a DUI, and was up against dire circumstances. Andrew kept me in the loop constantly, and got me the best possible outcome. I was facing 60 days of jail time, and ended up with 0 days of jail time. Finally, a misdemeanor of my stature typically incurs 5 years of probation, and again I received 0 years. Andrew braced me for worst case scenarios and got me the best possible scenario! I will not have to go to jail, and I can put this offense behind me thanks to his hard work & diligence. Thank you Andrew!

Response from Andrew Long June 14, 2021
Juan, Thank you for the review! It was a pleasure working with you. One minor correction: My name is Andrew Long, the law firm at which I formerly worked was Matthew Lopez Law. Thanks again!

Top level attorney. Exceeded expectations and won me an amazing outcome.
I am a CA driver that was arrested for DUI in AZ. I had 2 priors in CA approximately 9 years before the arrest and with my blood alcohol level registering at 1.78 via the breathalyzer, I was facing some serious consequences. Andrew presented the facts to me clearly and without promising false hopes, but his plan to mitigate the consequences made sense so I put my faith in him. Andrew delivered, and then some. With the letters and pre-trial tasks he gave me to complete, he was able to secure a plea deal to the lowest available misdemeanor, “Driving while under the influence, below .08.” His impassioned defense of me during sentencing also convinced the judge to suspend my entire jail sentence! Andrew also represented me at my MVD hearing where I was facing a 1 year suspension for my alleged refusal to consent to a blood draw. He did his homework and procured the body cam footage from the arresting officer and discovered that I had given consent, but the officer had badgered me into a refusal that I did not comprehend. The MVD trial judge listened to Andrew’s defense and audio and was convinced that I had not violated the statute and MVD ruled in my favor, voiding the 1 year suspension. Andrew achieved victory for me on every front in my case and I could not have asked for a better representative to be in my corner. His knowledge of the AZ criminal court system was apparent and the outcome is proof of his abilities. I cannot thank him enough because what he gave me was priceless: staying out of a jail cell and be home with my loved ones.

Knowledgeable, Diligent Attorney
When anyone in your family is facing criminal charges, and worse yet with serious threat of conviction based on those charges, it's a horrible time. Having a qualified attorney really is a game changer. Andrew always gave excellent legal advice, advised us of our options, and was responsive to all my emails and calls. I think he truly understands that a conviction will impact the rest of someone's life. I would hire Andrew again, although hopefully I never have to, and would recommend him to family and friends should they ever need representation. We got an excellent result from retaining Andrew. However, even if we had not, I'd have felt he did everything he could. That says a lot, I think, about the quality and character of an attorney.

Attorney long
Andrew just help me and my father on our assault case. He kept us updated all throughout the process and always very professional. If I ever was to need an attorney again or someone close to me, I wouldn’t think twice before calling him or referring him. I 100% recommend him, our results were the best results we could’ve expected. We are extremely happy with how our case ended.

Forged in fury
Mr. Long was my defense attorney appointed by justice court in my case. After our first consultation he quickly noted and dived straight into the flaws in my case. At every corner and turning point he was clear precise and efficient. This was my first expierence running in with the law. Thanks to him, hopefully it'll be my last. I hadn't ever needed a lawyer before in life, if I had to choose one on my own accord I highly recommend Mr. Long to any and everyone asking. I personally thank him for the act of valor he showed by representing me, not to mention winning my case with resilient professionalism. No public pretender here.

Hired Attorney for my father
I met and observed Attorney Andrew Long, while he represented my father in jury trial for less than one (1) week, and I was overwhelmingly impressed, I observed Attorney Andrew Long's passionate interest in key facts, understanding an articulating detailed facts, diligence and commitment, and very organized chronologically structured, opening and closing statements, not including, highlighting and announcing inconsistencies from the prosecution. Andrew Long, paid attention to every minutiae detail in my father's case, from the arrest and police report, to recording devices used, written statements, and very thorough cross-examination, this man has a sharp eye and intelligent analysis and will put you under the microscope, so to speak, if you're lying, in order to falsely accuse someone of a crime for sure.. My father was charged with a crime that he did not commit, although the system charged him with three counts that could have costed him decades in prison, Attorney Andrew Long, was amazing, the man was very outspoken and strong, speaking from his heart and from the facts of the case, that no one could dispute, I sat in watched a truly gifted man/attorney, that I can see, took pride and honor in his line of work. I've been in a court room over a dozen times in my life, born and raised in Los Angeles County, California, and this was my first time in a Arizona Courtroom, and Attorney Andrew Long, knocks all the LA/CA Attorneys down, by far, I mean, he's committed and dedicated to the facts, knows how to rebuttal a false accusation, especially false witness testimony, and makes sense of a situation, an incident, an articulated detail concept that most attorneys don't even know how to immediately understand, as it's developing by never before heard testimony. I observed Attorney Andrew Long, do just that on the fly, point out the obvious and make complete sense, on his rebuttal and the facts, and I was damn impressed. Attorney Andrew Long, almost and had me in tears, as he had to represent and describe sensitive facts of the case regarding my father, and it touched me so much, this man, this attorney, is so sharp, squared away, I couldn't believe how well be got to know my father like that, especially for me, a 36 year old man, I can say no more words here, as I write this out... All in all, This is a man that knows what the steaks are, how the system can arrest a individual and easily charge that person with a crime, and prosecute them in a court of law, and easily convict an innocent person, although if you have attorney Andrew Long representing you, the one simple phrase I heard my whole life is "the truth shall set you free" and Attorney Andrew Long, will do just that ! Thank you, my dad could of spent 17 years in prison for being innocent and would of most likely, have died in prison, due to his age and health, and a son/family member would of lost his father to a broken and sometimes corrupt system, that destroys lives like this on a daily basis.. Thank You again Attorney Andrew Long!

To Whom it may Concern:
It is imperative that I also bring to your attention, the one and only positive comment I can make about this entire fiasco. I would expect that the State of Arizona and everyone involved, to pay attention and recognize what a true asset you have, working as a Public Defender. He is someone I Highly recommend that the State of Arizona use as a role model to teach others about integrity, morals and common sense. Because I am poor and have no money, I got stuck with a Deputy Public Defender named Andrew Long from the Mohave County Public Defenders Office at 318 N. 5th St. Kingman, Az 86402. By the grace of God, Mr.. Long was appointed MY Public Defender. He was the ONLY one in the entire judicial system that would listen to a word I said. . He seen how I was being intentionally screwed by BERNI and took it upon himself to protect my rights and see that justice prevails We were dumbfounded that I was found guilty for a crime I would never commit. All based on premeditated, Malicious, Frivolous Complaints made by BERNI, who has never even been a participant in court....... And allowed to manipulate the entire process without any consequence for his actions... Andrew Long not only believed in me, and how I was cheated out of my money almost 2 years ago. He did not give up on me. If I was the richest man in the world, I could never repay Andrew Long, for his relentless pursuit of Justice... He is an extreme asset and I have nothing but admiration and gratitude for him and all he has done for me, without having to help and no incentive other than Justice.... God Bless Andrew Long... A public defender is overwhelmed with cases, make very little money, and have nothing invested in their clients.. They have no incentive nor obligation for what they do. I was Amazed by the extraordinary lengths Mr.. Long has gone to and the time invested to help me... He could easily have walked away... But he did not.... Andrew Long has more integrity and common sense than the entire Judicial system that I have had to battle needlessly for 2 years.. Not only was I WRONGFULLY CONVICTED for a Crime never committed.... Mr...... Long filed an Appeal for me and had my Conviction reversed and I AM NOT GUILTY for a crime never committed.... Please take a look at the time and effort this man put into the appeal.... My God man, who does that ??? With absolutely nothing to gain, he went so far beyond what any other person would do. He has been with me to the very end and, Andrew Long is the standard to which others should be measured.

I couldn't be happier.
Mr. Long is the best. He always had time to talk to me about my case and showed constant effort to make sure I fully understood my situation and options. He always kept me informed, was friendly and easy to talk to and charismatic, and always replied promptly when contacted. Not only was he able to get the desired outcome with my case, he also made me feel like he genuinely cared about me and about protecting my rights. Andrew Long fought very hard to find me justice and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a defense attorney who is thorough and very knowledgeable of the law.

Dismissed!!
Mr Long was assigned to my case after my original attorney left. I was blessed to have him as my attorney. We had a few disagreements in the beginning. Once, we conquered the trust issues, a bond was made. He spent a lot of time and energy preparing for my trial. :He worked on the motions during his weekends. He let me know what I needed to do and what to expect. His goal was to win the case and he never looked back. Mr. Long was very knowledgeable and knew what needed to be done. He showed great determination and persistence in his work. The case never went to trial. Because of his expertise, the case was dismissed. I feel, he cared for my well being A lawyer, like Mr. Long, does not come along very often. I was fortunate to have him represent me.

Amazing public defender!
Andrew was assigned to to myself for an OUI case that we strongly wanted to fight against. He was so professional and involved from the beginning. He always responded in a timely matter, understanding to our specific situation and was available via email or phone at all business hours. I can't express enough how empathetic and involved he was. He caught every detail in the police report and the items I was able to provide. He had lots of questions for us and really prepared himself for our trial date. He made sure we were ready and confident and supported us every step of the way. I really appreciated how involved he was and how passionate he was about fighting for what was right. He came to trial ready to put up a fight for myself and act as an advocate for myself as a client. I was confident in his abilities and put my trust in him from the way he portrayed himself. I had about 3 court days and a trial over the length of a year and he was reliable and ready each time. After a long year, I was found NOT GUILTY due to his hard work and dedication. I would and will always recommend Andrew to anyone that may need him. Do not hesitate when picking him to represent you!!

"Andrew Long is a fantastic criminal defense attorney. I worked with him while he was employed the Mohave County Public Defender's Office and I personally witnessed that he fully invests himself into representing clients. I saw him get jury trial acquittals on seemingly unwinnable cases and I saw him push the prosecution into seeing the flaws in the State's case to obtain favorable resolutions. He forces the prosecution to prove their burden and does not back down. I would not hesitate for a second to personally hire Mr. Long as my defense attorney if the need ever arose."
