  • Steven W Zachary

    I endorse this lawyer. Attorney Lutgring provides great answers to people who are requesting information. She not only gives her opinion but resources to help people get more information. She is a great asset to the criminal defense legal community. If I had someone in Tucson who needed an attorney I would send them to Ms. Lutging.
