Certain drug and narcotic charges are punished severely under Arizona law. In fact, Arizona has some of the most stringent drug laws and harshest punishments in the country. If you are facing criminal charges for methamphetamine offenses or drug and narcotic offenses, hiring an experienced lawyer is crucial to your defense. The Weingart Firm has over 30 years of solid experience defending clients charged with drug crimes in Arizona. We utilize strategies such as using Proposition 200 for sentence reduction and replacing jail time with an alternative such as diversion or drug treatment programs.
If you have been accused of committing a violent offense in Arizona, you will be facing mandatory prison sentencing. These crimes include murder, arson, armed robbery, kidnapping, and any crime involving deadly weapons or dangerous instruments such as guns, knives, motor vehicles, etc. The Weingart Firm aims to minimize your exposure to punishment for violent offenses by utilizing self-defense pleas, and closely examining the processes by which evidence was gathered against you. We present your side of the story and bring to light all the facts of your case.
If you are facing charges of domestic violence, stalking, cyberstalking, or harassment, having an experienced lawyer on your side can make all the difference on the outcome of your case. Penalties from these crimes have become complex and severe in recent years, ranging from years in jail to hefty fines upward of $150,000.
Is your child in trouble with the law? We can effectively defend juveniles for any offense, including violent crimes; however, we are the experts when it comes to representing juveniles on less serious offenses, such as: drug possession, underage DUI, or possession and use of a fake ID. We strive to protect your child’s future by diverting away from the criminal justice system and toward community-based treatment programs.
We represent persons charged with offenses generally referred to as “white collar” crimes. This encompasses such crimes as fraud, money laundering, identity theft, and embezzlement. Our agonizingly detail-oriented approach to white collar crime cases will give you the strongest case possible. We review how the government came to possess evidence against you, utilize financial experts and computer consultants to make sure the evidence matches up with the actual records, and aggressively look for any cracks in the prosecution’s case.
Are you a licensed professional accused of a crime that may negatively affect your license? We provide defense for licensed professionals in criminal cases such as DUI, domestic violence, drug possession, and serious crimes involving motor vehicles. Furthermore, we also consider how the outcome could have a potential negative effect on your professional license and take the proper actions against this to help ensure your future. If needed, we can engage with your licensing board to possibly thwart or eliminate disciplinary proceedings. We help such licensed professionals as teachers, pilots, attorneys, judges, nurses, dentists, and police officers.
