After working for firms and handling numerous cases, I realized that one of the most important things to clients is having an attorney who understands their case from start to finish. When one hires a firm they often never hear from the attorney they originally spoke with again because that attorney only is in charge of intake. The person may not even have the opportunity to speak with their attorney about their individual case before making a payment and instead, their consultation might be referred to a case manager following a script, who may or may not be an attorney. Other times a person's case is transferred to various attorneys within the firm who may or may not know the details of the case. This can sometimes cause confusion with expectations, desired outcomes, probability of success, or frustration with the need to continuously repeat information or provide documents.

It is largely for this reason that I decided to start my own practice. When you hire me you can rest assured that I will be your attorney from start to finish. Your free initial consultation will address your goals and expectations from the start so you can decide whether to proceed with my representation. Thereafter, you can be assured that I will remain a part of your case until the end and will be in direct communication with you.

Since being admitted to the California Bar in 2010 and the Arizona Bar in 2014 I have focused almost entirely on criminal law.  Arizona has some of the harshest laws and penalties in the country for common crimes such as DUI/DWI, and it is my goal to ensure that your rights are nonetheless protected. You may have a defense on constitutional grounds such as an unreasonable search of your vehicle, invalid stop, or violation of your rights to remain silent and obtain counsel. The law is consistently changing and I am focused on coming up with the best strategies to protect your constitutional rights.

If you are charged with a crime, give me a call and find out how I can assist you.

Great Lawyer!!!
I hired Mr. Parven to represent me in a case involving an overweight and a criminal offense while driving a commercial truck. From the moment he took my call, he was very professional and knowledgeable, and gave me a free consultation of what he thought the result of the case was going to be. Everything resulted exactly like he said. The case was dismissed and i saved a lot of money in tickets. He always kept me up to date with the status of the case and followed up with me frequently to ensure that everything was on track. If you need a lawyer for Criminal Defense, Traffic Ticketing, or DUI, i strongly recommend Mr Parven.

The Best Decision I Made...
I do not have a lot of experience when dealing with attorneys but I am extremely glad I chose Mr. Parven to represent me. When someone is in the situation where they need to hire a defense attorney for the first time it can be overwhelming and very scary. William was approachable, down to earth, and sympathetic to my unique circumstances. He was honest and upfront about my situation during our initial meeting. He was flexible and worked with my financial situation. He broke down step by step what would be occurring in my case and what he would be doing to help me. He also encouraged me to be proactive and help myself by completing certain tasks that would be viewed favorable by the courts at a later date. William took a personal interest in me and my situation as it became increasingly more complex thanks to my own stupidity. Even though I actually caused more problems than I should have, William seemed to always be there to help me out of a jam. I owe this man a lot and in my humble opinion is the best attorney I could have chosen. William fought for me. Yes I made some mistakes that landed me in hot water but there were some very unfortunate circumstances that surrounded these events and a lot of people started to kick me while I was down. William was the one person who stood up for me and prevented me from losing everything. I hope I never need his services again but I will recommend him to anyone who wants an honest, hard working man who will fight for what is right.

Dedicated attorney, gives re-assurance, and Won.
Facing a charge that would have ended my employment and therefore my livelihood, I was fortunate to find William Parven. While I know attorneys can never give guarantees, Mr. Parven answered my many phone calls, often after hours to give me assurance while we went through our 7 month court battle. He was able to provide enough support to me, and evidence questioning the charges, that in the end, the charges were able to be dismissed. Mr. Parven was not just a great attorney challenging every aspect of the case against a very dedicated prosecutor, he was a re-assuring hand during the drawn-out proceedings. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a defense attorney. May I never have a situation where I need an attorney again, but if William is in practice, I will seek his help. Thanks Sir!

Confidence is key
William Parven is an excellent attorney! Mr. Parven took over my case after my previous lawyer left the firm and he treated me as if I was his original client. He is thorough, attentive and passionate about his job. He went into my case confidently and we won! I can't thank him enough.

If you need an Attorney, look no further.
There many attorneys in Tucson to choose from, but there are very few who will work hard and relentlessly for you . Mr. Parven was there for anything we needed, he answered all calls and emails immediately. Mr. Parven goes after every aspect of the law above and beyond what’s is required. He’s a fighter and that’s what you need.

Attorney you can trust
I was in need of an Attorney desperately, I had never had an issue with the law or had gone to court for anything. I did some research and found William, I called and that same day he met with me. He talked to me for at least 3 hours, and explained the process of a DUI. I still wasn't sure if I could afford to even hire an attorney, He was nice enough to work with me and give him monthly payments that were reasonable. I never ones had to be chasing him around to get him to do anything. Not only that but he got me the best plea possible, from DUI to a reckless driving. I will forever be grateful to him.

Excessive speeding citation
I received a citation for excessive speeding while returning from a thanksgiving weekend trip with my wife. The citation was given to me in a county notorious for having very strict interpretation of traffic laws and I was facing a permanent misdemeanor conviction for excessive speeding which would have had ramifications in my personal and professional life. I hired Mr. Parven to deal with the case and he did an amazing job. During our first meeting he was very transparent and up front about his pricing for his services, which was very reasonable and comparable to other attorneys in the area dealing with similar cases. Throughout the entire process he was always available and prompt in answering my many questions via phone or email conversations. He crafted a strategy that was very unique to my case and ultimately had the charges dismissed completely to a defensive driving school course. It was amazing having him as my attorney and I would recommend him without reservation to anyone seeking help in traffic related cases.

Straightforward and informative
I was pulled over in Blythe, CA for going 105 in the 75 MPH zone headed toward AZ. I of course got hit with the 100+ speeds charge and was immediately in distress. Of course I should have not have been speeding at all but it is what it is. When I came here for legal advise on whether I should even try to fight it he was very informative on the possibilities and likelihood of winning the case. All the other lawyers wanted a deposit and all kinds of paperwork before they would even talk to me. He was clear on his availability and the cost of his service. Was courteous enough to send me confirmation emails with paperwork included. He also called and went over every option with me before he told me what was my best option. I was aware I was going into a losing situation considering my charge. But he did give me hope with his professionalism and his knowledge on how the system works. We ended up actually winning the case because one of the officers did not show. We may have won by a good amount of luck but he made the process a lot less stressful. He called me the day of and the minute he was outta the courthouse. Hopefully I never need his services again but I know if I do he is my 1st option.

Above and beyond
When I was stopped for a DUI I was devastated. As an educator, I thought everything was over. Mr. Parven was able to quell my fears and told me that we have tools to fight this. Over the span of a year, Mr. Parven meticulously went over every detail of my case and was eventually able to get all my charges dropped. Mr. Parven was very understanding of my financial situation and worked with me to make sure that I had the best representation possible. I would recommend Mr. Parven without any hesitation to anyone struggling with any legal issues. His knowledge of the law has been a life saver. Thank you again.

OUI charges dismissed
An OUI conviction would have resulted in the lose of my job and William worked very hard to protect me and was able to get the case dismissed. He was extremely knowledgable and professional and I am truly grateful I found him..

Upmost integrity and professionalism
Mr. Parven Contacted me on a question that I had posted. After discussing my case and everything I had already done. He advised that it wouldn’t be fair if I hired him or any other attorney as I had already did every myself. He told me to keep him informed on the outcome of pre-trial conference. He called me the following day of the conference and everything he told me was going to happened did. I appreciate his honesty and integrity. I would definitely will call him if I ever need a honest and professional attorney.

Response from William Parven September 27, 2017
Thank you for your kind review. One of the main benefits of hiring an attorney is it will save you lots of time and worries because you won't have to deal with the hassles of the court system. It is always advisable to contact an attorney from the start to maximize the benefit you will receive. In most cases it is also advisable to have an attorney to fight for your rights throughout the process to maximize your chance of obtaining a favorable result. However, every case is unique, and occasionally, for minor cases, the cost of an attorney might not be justified if you have the time to do it yourself. I believe it is important to give honest and detailed consultations to ensure you know you are making a good investment when hiring an attorney.

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. Parven is a very professional lawyer. Through out my case, he reassured me that I would get a favorable outcome. He instructed me on the law and gave me step by step instructions on what was necessary for me to win the case. My DUI charges were dismissed thanks to Mr. Parven. I highly recommend him.

Went the extra mile
I came to William John Parven to help me out with my criminal traffic ticket. Not only did he help me, but he went out of his way to get me the best possible outcome I could have hoped for. Getting this ticket was a pain but William made it so much better. He was punctual, professional, and patient. What could have been a lasting mark on my record was reduced to only a minor issue and for that I am very grateful. Thanks William!

Civil and a class 3 Misdemeanor case for a Parking ticket settled
For a non moving parking offence I was given a notice with a civil and a class 3 misdemeanor case. As I was really worried about the criminal offense being charged for a simple parking offence, I found William through the online search. William carefully handled the case at every stage explaining to me all about the civil and criminal charges applicable to my case. He clearly provided me a strategy on how this case will be handled throughout. At every stage of the case, William did all the paper work and followed up with the court and attorney and he even made a personal visit to court on this case which made a lot of difference. He used to call me or send me detailed emails on the case proceedings as soon as the hearing was over. This kept me up-to-date on the case without having to go online looking for the case status. Finally the matter was settled with a civil case and a nominal fine with no points on my license and most importantly the criminal charges were dismissed. William has been truly trustworthy and highly professional. I would highly recommend William in case you are looking for an able lawyer for any of your traffic violation tickets.

Professional
Mr. Parven was able to get a very old, yet very damaging issue taken care of for my boyfriend. He was very professional, and very diligent in resolving the issue (and was also able to get the fines brought way down). Because he also practices here in CA, he even helped with an issue here as well, and actually got the case dismissed.
