Ted is well prepared!
Ted Agnick went above and beyond in my OOP case. He was caring and compassionate. Ted did his homework and was ready for battle. I considered representing myself, and that would have been a HUGE mistake. Ted knows the statutes and keeps up on which ones have changed. These details were very important in my case. I needed an attorney that was, "detail oriented", and extremely knowledgeable. Ted is exactly what you are looking for in a lawyer! Thank you again, Ted Agnick, and thank you to your wonderful team!!

thorough and responsive
Mr. Agnick was great. Honestly it's hard to tell who's good and who's not because I don't have a lot to compare to. However, I've hired a real estate lawyer and a family lawyer since then. The experience was not the same as Ted. I was a squeeky wheel for him and had a lot of questions. He stayed patient with me. The answers were quick and concise as I imagine he stays very busy. Mr. Agnick got me a good deal on a fairly serious matter. Others that I spoke to did not get the same outcome.

President at Sun Tech Painting Inc.
Ted did a wonderful job with my case. Through the difficult time after the accident, Ted and his very accommodating staff worked hard to insure the other party's insurance company followed through with their obligation. Ted even took the time and patience to reach a better settlement than the other party was originally willing to settle on. I highly recommend Ted Agnick's law firm.

Very Satisfied. Ted Agnick is the Man!
My son had a complex and difficult case. He was facing a nasty mandatory minimum sentence for a crime he didn’t commit in a county of very determined and punishing prosecutors. I hired Ted Agnick to represent him. Ted Agnick cares; he cares about his client and he cares about being the best defense attorney he can possibly be. Ted proceeded to delve deeply, explore every avenue, he scoured the earth for the best and brightest expert investigator that he could find and together they brought my son’s case to a better resolution than I had dared to hope for. This attorney deserves to have his star rise because he is one of the good ones. Thank you, Ted!

Spectacular Attorney
I spoke in length with Ted about an arrest the happen to my lady friend who wanted her "case sealed". Ted did a record search and explained exquisitely that because the case was "purged and dismissed" that the difference between a "sealed case" and a "purged-dismissed case" is "cleared" instead of "dismissed". Therefore resulting in tremendous savings as well as understanding the case. He's very knowledgeable, ethical and thorough. Just a great Attorney, I would highly recommend him.

Criminal defense
I found Ted to be very thorough in His investigation of my Grandson's case. He was very personal with my family and kept us informed of all movement in the case. He was honest and trustworthy. I would use Him again if I needed criminal counsel and I would recommend him to anyone needing a good defense. Very knowledgeable of the Law.

My DUI case
I heard of Teds law office through a friend and I was in need of help. After talking to Ted and his staff I felt confident that they could help. It seemed like it would never end, month after month it seemed to drag on but through it all I was kept informed every step of the way. I am very pleased with not only the result of my case but the attention I was given by his staff. Thank you

Stellar Determination!
Mr. Agnick is someone I had found when searching for a friend of my daughters, who needed some legal help. Ted not only took her case, allowing payment plans, he was able to get all charges were dismissed. I then referred a friend of mine with a ‘different’ sort of legal issue – Ted Agnick, got the case dismissed. I never thought I would need his services! But, one Sunday afternoon, I was in big trouble! Mr. Agnick took my case. The charges against me were really bad… I was being charged with 3 felonies with one being aggravated. For a 45 year old woman with Multiple Sclerosis, a 22 year government Program Administrator, wife and mother of three beautiful daughters, and have barely had a speeding ticket, I couldn’t fathom what I was going to do. Ted ensured I was calm, by explaining the entire court process. My initial plea bargain was an Open 6 aggravated, with supervised probation and I could “work” my way down to a misdemeanor, eventually. Being sick, there was no way I could have a probation officer knocking on my door at whatever hour, I could be in an MS flare and I wouldn’t dig on (and I doubt the P.O. would either) anyone seeing me this way. I also use medical marijuana in treatment of many symptoms caused by my MS and Ted fought to allow me to be able to continue the use of my medication. Long story short… I received a misdemeanor DUI: 1 year suspended license (6 months interlock), $1500 in fines, 40 hours community service, alcohol and drug awareness course and up to 2 years unsupervised probation. My life is getting back on track and it’s because of Ted’s perseverance, knowledge and caring about his client! I hope I never need his services again, but if I or anyone I know does, he will be the only referral from me! Thank you Ted!

Mr. Agnick and his staff were approachable and made me feel like a very important client and not just another case on their list. Mr. Agnick was able to come up with several strategies on how to purse my case and give me options in preparing a defense. We were able to get the exact outcome that I was looking for. The fee was very reasonable. I would recommend Mr. Agnick to anyone with a DUI or criminal charge.

Thumbs up.
I speak very highly of Mr Agnick. He delt with my case professionally and courteously. He got me the exact results i was looking for, without going to trial and with a reasonable fee. I appreciate everything he and his staff has done for me.

Will definitely be referring
Ted Agnick was right away very concerned about helping me and demonstrated a lot of knowledge that would later benefit us in my case. Ted and his team were good about communicating the status of the case. He was also very willing to work with me on the payments. Ted did what he does best and was able to get my case dismissed completely. I am very grateful to have been recommended to him and will definitely be referring people to him.

During a tough season, it's very important to have the best on your side.
During a tough season, it's so important to have the best on your side. Ted listens to all your concerns and has a big heart behind the "Attorney" label. He's extremely thorough, ethical, and knowledgeable. With my case, the police never actually had probable cause and then on top of that they lied about several things. Ted was able to look at every fine detail and develop the best strategy and direction to go in. If I didn't have Ted on my side, I would have lost my license for a yr or more, been in jail for 4 months, lost my job and more. I'm so thankful to have had A man of integrity represent me. If you need the best out there to help you, I encourage you to sit with him and talk to him and by the end of that first meeting with him you will have the discernment to know that he is the perfect fit. Oh and by the way, I'm only keeping this post anonymous because this is now in my past and I have already pressed forward in life.

Theodore Agnick, The Best Criminal Lawyer in AZ
Accepting my case, Mr. Agnick worked diligently to get the case dismissed. Using his extensive legal knowledge, Mr. Agnick presented a sound argument for dismissal. However, the Prosecutor was determined to get some type of conviction, and would not dismiss the case. Mr. Agnick did all the due diligence necessary including getting a disposition from the Prosecutor's witness which contradicted the police report, as well as subpoenaing that witness to testify in court. At the Evidence Hearing, the Prosecutor dismissed the case. I am forever grateful to Mr. Agnick for defending me. His knowledge, and his trustworthiness can not be questioned. He was very responsive to all my concerns and he kept me informed every step of the way. I highly recommend Mr. Theodore Agnick to anyone who needs a Lawyer.

Incredibly Skilled Attorney
When I was charged with my first DUI, Ted came very highly recommended by a friend of mine who had used him to get his extreme DUI dropped down to a reckless driving. After my initial consultation, I was most impressed with Ted's attentiveness to my side of the story and his assertive personality, a trait that I had not seen in other lawyers I had met with. His entire office was very knowledgeable not only on Arizona laws but also the status of my case. I spoke with his paralegals on a regular basis and on the rare occasion that they were not able to answer my questions I was put in touch with Ted almost immediately. I felt like I had an entire team of skilled lawyers at my disposal, helping to put some of my anxiety to rest throughout the case. Just as with my friend, Ted was able to get my DUI dropped to a reckless driving. He has saved me a ton of money, prevented jail time, and removed the stigma of having a DUI on my record and I am very thankful. I have already recommended him to my family and friends and I highly recommend you give him a call if you ever need excellent legal representation.

Highly Recomended
After interviewing 3 different Lawyers for my case I choose Mr. Agnick. I would highly recommend Ted to represent me at any time. His diligence was second to none and after defending my case for over a year the charges were dismissed for a lesser charge. It was all and more that I could have expected or anticipated. If you want a good attorney that will back you and fight your cause, don't look any further. Highly recommended!

Mr. Agnick is an excellent lawyer. He was on top of my case and had it resolved within days. We had a steady stream of communication by phone and email. I would highly recommend him. He was recommended to me and lived up to his reputation.

Great lawyer, reasonable price
Ted helped me out on reducing a trespassing charge successfully. Overall I think he did a very good job. Sometimes it seemed difficult to get a hold of him personally, but his assistants were generally helpful. I would recommend him.

Great Attorney at a reasonable price
I needed help with a DPS Fingerprint Clearance Card. I was only three weeks from my deadline (people can have a hard time preparing this in 3 months). Theodore was able to complete my appeal before the deadline and my card was granted within two weeks of filing the appeal. This would not of happened with the help of his entire office.

Excellent Results for DUI
Ted was extremely helpful with my DUI case. His knowledge of Arizona law, how it translates from other states, and his recommendations of how to proceed were crucial in my outcome. I have the utmost confidence that I would be in prison right now if I had retained a different attorney. My agg DUI was reduced so that I can serve the little time I got in work release. I was referred by a friend to retain Mr. Agnick, and I would encourage anyone else to do the same. Not only was he fantastic at court, he was also readily available to meet if I had additional questions. Absolutely worth every penny

"Fantastic attorney. One of the best attorney's I know. Ted was the criminal defense attorney in a case where I was the prosecutor. Ted impressed me because he was willing to go the extra mile for his client. He kept fighting when other attorneys would give up. Moreover, he was able to spot issues with the State's case to secure a better resolution than would have otherwise occurred. Ted is a top-notch attorney who sincerely cares about his clients and will fight hard on their behalf. I recommend him for criminal law, DUI, bankruptcy, and personal injury law."

Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 14
Relationship: Family member
"I know it is only "slightly odd" that I endorse my own husband....however, I love my job as a criminal defense attorney and owe it 100% to him that I ever decided to go to law school. I remember the first time I ever met Ted, we were in court. I was immediately impressed by the respect with which he treated his client and the voracious way he took on his representation. I was really hoping I never had to get on his bad side, because I knew that he would take no prisoners when fighting for his client. Through our 11 years of marriage, he still inspires me. I only hope that I am able to represent my clients as well as he does. My family always says that they would hire Ted first (as would I) because they know that he represents every client intelligently and never quits fighting."
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Ted for four years through both his criminal and bankruptcy practice. During that time, I have observed him to represent his clients diligently while obtaining phenomenal results. His good outcomes have a lot to do with his creative strategy and tireless effort. I would highly recommend him in any of his practice areas (he would be the first attorney I would call if I were ever to get in trouble - his phone number is easy to memorize :) )."
