Tucson Criminal Defense Lawyer

Fighting to Protect Your Rights & Freedom

Have you been arrested for a crime? You may not know what steps to take to defend your freedom. That’s why the Law Office of Christopher M. Jeffrey is here. Our experienced criminal defense lawyer serving Tucson, AZ can help you navigate the complex legal system with a strong defense strategy that protects your rights and interests.

What Is the Difference Between a Lawyer and a Defense Attorney?

The difference between a lawyer and defense attorney is how the lawyer practices the law while helping their clients in the courtroom. A criminal defense attorney is an advocate of the law while supporting their clients through various legal strategies in and out of court.

Our Arizona criminal defense law firm defends our clients against a wide range of charges, from traffic crimes to DUI, to felonies. When you turn your legal matter over to us, we can work diligently to find the solution that is right for you. We understand how the justice system works, how to best fight criminal charges, and what it takes to achieve a favorable result.

What Is the Difference Between Misdemeanors & Felonies?

Whether you have been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, our legal team is prepared to deliver the strong representation that you require. Misdemeanors are typically less serious criminal offenses and, therefore, receive less severe penalties. Felonies, on the other hand, are more severe crimes that are punishable by much larger fines and sometimes significantly longer jail time.

Do not be fooled, however, by the fact that misdemeanors are less serious than felonies – in the eyes of the law, they are considered serious breaches of the law and punished as such. A Class 1 misdemeanor can land you in jail for up to six months and cost you as much as $2,500 in fines. Not only that, but the offense will also go on your permanent record and remain there until you turn 99. That means it will show up on a background check, which could make it difficult to obtain certain types of employment. Whether you have been arrested for a misdemeanor or felony, be sure to have a dependable legal advocate on your side.

Should I Take a Plea Bargain?

A plea bargain is an agreement between the prosecutor and the defendant, whereby the accused pleads guilty to a lesser charge in exchange for less severe sentence. Sometimes taking a plea bargain is the best option, but not always. If you have been offered a plea bargain, you should have an experienced criminal defense attorney carefully evaluate it before proceeding. Christopher Jefferey can help you ensure that your rights are being protected and that you fully understand both the short-term and long-term consequences of taking the plea bargain.
