Amazing Lawyer
I cannot even begin to describe the gratitude I have for Steven Meyerand. As I am sitting here a free man looking forward to every waking moment with my family. He and Jared are an amazing legal team to have on your side. I was charged with a class 3 felony for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon which carries a minimum prison sentence of 5yrs in Arizona. I did not do what I was being charged with but I made some critical mistakes in not fully cooperating and antagonizing law enforcement on the night of the incident. I was completely guilty for contempt of deputy but not for what I was being arrested and charged. Needless to say when the State refused to let the case go we went to trial. The trial took 3 horrible nerve racking weeks to get through with hours upon hours of testimony. His guidance and reassurance during the trial helped me and my family get through this trying ordeal. At the end of it all he convinced the jury I was Not Guilty. Arizona does however have what is called lesser included charges, which for this case was a class 6 felony for Disorderly Conduct with a Deadly Weapon. The lesser charge if found to be dangerous would have been a minimum of 1.75 yrs in prison. I was found Guilty for the lesser charge but since he convinced the jury it was non-dangerous it was left as an undesignated felony with 3yrs probation, which means I can work to get it reduced to a misdemeanor. See! that is how amazing he is, I know all of this now because of his commitment, knowledge and professionalism to making me understand my rights and options. Steven guided me through every phase with a full understanding of what was happening with honesty and integrity. I feel this was the best possible outcome short of a full dismissal and I have him to THANK.

Mr. Meyerand did a wonderful job taking care of a charge against me that was very nebulous at best. He was very professional, and thorough. I would recommend him highly.

Steven fought till the end (DUI Case re-opened)
I would highly recommend Steven Meyerand of AM Law Firm for any and all DUI Cases in Arizona. He was very understanding, easy to talk to, thorough and very professional throughout the entire process. My DUI case was very unique due to the fact that it was a "re-opened case." Steven's knowledge as a former prosecutor was extremely evident when he was able to have my case "DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE". He always made me feel that my case was a top priority and really helped me throughout this emotional and stressful experience in my life. Thank you Steven and AM Law Firm!
