Attorney providing effective legal representation for Phoenix residents charged with a misdemeanor
Most people who are arrested for misdemeanors are not career criminals. They are honest people who made a mistake or were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Such individuals often do not know what to expect from the legal process and are afraid for their future. If you have been charged with a misdemeanor in Phoenix, Arizona then the first step is to contact an attorney. A lawyer can explain what to expect as your case progresses, advise you of your rights, and and help you to understand your options. Bretton Barber assists people in such situations. He will help guide you through the process whether you have been arrested for DUI, simple assault, or domestic violence, or other criminal law issues. It is the goal of Bretton and the Barber Law Group to help you get your life on track as quickly as possible.
Bretton will use your initial consultation to gain an understanding of the case. He will determine how you viewed the incident and get details regarding your arrest. He will lay out a roadmap, which you can understand. Once retained, he will then gather the necessary evidence (such as police reports, witness statements, etc.) and meet with you again to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your case. As Bretton handles all matters in the office personally, he will be present at your hearings and will be in regular contact with you throughout the process. Bretton’s number one goal for all clients is to have their case dismissed, but when that is not possible, he will work hard to obtain the next best result.
