Case Dismissed.
He got my boyfriend's case dismissed by the state. It took a long time but we could not have asked for a better outcome and the permentant consequences to his life would have been severe. Andy exemplifies all the values his law firm strives to achieve. He treats you like you are his only client, bases everything on the evidence first, and offers outside-the-box solutions to problems that get results. He does not make promises he cannot stand behind and does an excellent job at managing client expectations. He has high ethical standards too. Im just incredibly impressed and he earned all of these comments.

The Guy is a STUD !!!! If you need Help. Look no further
I had some serious potential criminal Fed ATF + other agency issues. From day 1, Andy and his team were there and available even when they didn't have to be at all hours, sometimes with no notice.. Always protecting me and explaining all aspects and giving straight truth good or bad. They had a game plan as to how they thought would play out and they had a response in place in advance for each scenario. Which gives you peace of mind amongst the confusion. Even at one point when broke he found a way to make it work for me financially, all the while fighting for me as if I had a million dollar retainer. He knows wrong and right and will fight for what is right . I honestly cannot recommend anyone any higher, especially if your innocent

Best Defence Lawyer ever.
I had a big case that stressed me out so bad I couldn't think straight. Very compassionate, professional, kind, and very straightforward. I lucked out getting the chance to have him represent me. He was very aggressive in the court room. He worked the prosecutor until they gave a better deal than I could have ever imagined, considering the charges I had stacked against me. Andy is the man I will be calling if ever the need arises. (Hopefully not though)

I recently was charged with a super extreme DUI.... Andrew went to bat for me, and I could have never asked for a better defense. I'm so very thankful for him and his firm. Im happy to be doing the things the courts have offered me. Way less than it could have been. I'm also Sober... When I mentioned Rehab to Andrew, he assured me he had my back while I was in. I stayed for 60 days and didn't have to worry about court dates or what I was facing. I would recommend him and his firm to anyone in the same situation. So Greatful Stephen B

Thank you Andrew!

Want Justice? Look No Further...
I want to start this by saying that I, like many, never thought I would be in a position of having to hire a Criminal Defense Attorney. Unfortunately, a poor decision on my part, as well as bad timing and placement, led to a DUI. In the State of Arizona, the DUI laws are extremely severe, if not borderline cruel and unusual in regard to the major life disruption, and financial strain they put on you. I do not condone breaking the law and quite honestly, I didn't believe I was a threat to society or that I was putting anyone in imminent danger at the time. It is however, a zero tolerance State, and up to police discretion, regardless of the actual amount of alcohol in your system. I might suggest not even having one drink and getting into a vehicle, here. After that evening, my nightmare began but I knew I had a right to an Attorney and a damn good one at that. I am a Teacher, Musician, and Student going for a 2nd degree. I did not have the time or money to waste. I actually looked on this website and did quite a bit of research before consulting with Andy. I decided to go with him after our initial consultation. I could have gone with someone else if it weren't for the personal care and attention to detail this man provided. He not only lowered all the costs for me but even went out of his way to get me work as a Musician in order to help me financially. He earned my trust through his actions and I can honestly say, there is no other Attorney on this planet that I would turn to if I ever faced trouble again. He not only fought for me as if he were fighting for his own freedom, he kept me informed and helped me to understand everything that was happening along the way. I felt very comfortable talking with him and I can even say I now see him as a noble friend. He was able to get me a plea deal that was just, one that matched the offense. The State was out for blood and every last penny I had. He alleviated that completely. I was able to return to my life and keep moving forward. His tenacity, commitment, personality, knowledge, and intelligence makes for one hell of a Lawyer. He's so refreshingly wise for his age. We must fight for our freedom, whether or not our freedom is on the line. As for me, I definitely will be keeping him as the fighter on my side.

Criminal defense Attorney | Oct 27
Relationship: Supervised lawyer
"I have been practicing criminal law for over 21 years. In that time, I have hired many lawyers to work for my law firm. Because our standards are so high, most of the lawyers I hire don't make it at my firm. Andy is a rare find. He is one of the few lawyers I have met who really fights hard for the clients while truly empathizing with their situation. He sees his clients as people rather than merely clients of the firm. I would have him represent me in the event I needed a lawyer. That really says it all."
