Few things -- in fact, likely nothing -- can be more harrowing for an individual than to find himself or herself on the receiving end of a state or federal criminal investigation.
And the reasons for that are multiple and obvious.
For starters, the resources commanded by local and larger law enforcement agencies that can be instantly brought to bear in a criminal probe are flatly immense.
And the penalties speak for themselves. As we note on our criminal defense website at Coughlon Law Firm, PLLC, in Phoenix, the adverse repercussions flowing from a conviction can include "years behind bars, stiff fines and a criminal record."
And, of course, a number of other negative results can also ensue, depending on the type and severity of the criminal charge that an individual faces.
If you are an Arizona resident who has been targeted by law enforcement officials in any criminal matter where a misdemeanor or felony charge could result (ranging from a drug offense or alleged commission of a violent crime to a DUI arrest, white collar probe or any other matter), a proven criminal defense attorney can help ensure that your interests and legal rights are fully promoted.
Arizona attorney Robert E. Coughlon, Jr., has more than two decades of on-point experience advocating with passion and diligence on behalf of persons facing serious criminal charges in both Arizona state and federal courts.
Although a particular legal outcome can never be guaranteed in any specific matter, our law firm can indeed pledge that we will make every effort in a case to have any criminal charges being faced by a client dismissed outright or reduced to the fullest extent of the law.
