The reality is that many people are charged with crimes they did not commit. Others are overcharged and faced with penalties far greater than their offenses merit. Many simply made a mistake and should not have their lives ruined because of one misstep.
At the Law Office of Douglas W. Taylor in Tucson, we will fight to maintain your innocence. We will hold the prosecutor to their burden of proof. If they believe you are guilty, they will have to prove it with evidence. We will shine a light on that evidence and show its flaws. We will research and investigate and bring evidence of our own when appropriate. Our goal is to get bad evidence thrown out, have your case dismissed, win your case at trial or have the charges and penalties reduced to something that will not damage your future.
With more than 15 years of experience in City, County, State, and Federal Arizona courtrooms, we are good at dealing with local prosecutors. We know how to negotiate with them when appropriate, and have a reputation for results during the pre-trial phase. However, we are also trial-ready. We are fully prepared to argue your case in front of a judge and jury if that is what it takes.

Felonies are not to be taken lightly. While a misdemeanor charge may not significantly disrupt your life, a felony has the potential to cause long-lasting damage that is difficult or impossible to recover from. Most misdemeanors max out at 6 months of jail time, where some felonies can even result in a life sentence. If you’re facing felony charges, you need to work with an experienced defense attorney who understands the gravity of your charges.
Our law firm has experience representing clients in a wide range of felony criminal defense matters, including:Violent crimes, such as assault, kidnaping, and domestic violence Theft offenses, including shoplifting, robbery, and embezzlement Major drug charges, such as drug trafficking, sale, possession for sale, and manufacturing Sex crimes, including sexual assault and sexual abuse
Don’t take your chances with a subpar attorney. You have way too much to lose, and we can help you hold on to as much as possible.
If your felony charges cannot be dismissed early on because the judge finds that the evidence is sufficient to proceed, or the grand jury hands down an indictment against you, you still have options. One is to plead not guilty; another is to plead guilty to lesser charges by arranging a deal; still another is to challenge the evidence and the case in the pretrial phase; finally, we can take the government to trial. Either way, we put up a powerful fight on your behalf.
