Tucson Criminal Defense Attorney
I am a top rated and experienced Tucson criminal defense attorney having successfully represented people in hundreds of felonies and misdemeanors throughout Arizona, including: domestic violence, DUI/DWI, criminal traffic, assault, disorderly conduct, shoplifting, and more. I can also assist you with Arizona criminal record clearing and expungements, set asides, restoration of civil rights and firearms rights, reducing felony convictions to misdemeanors, and early probation terminations.
Choosing the Right Tucson Criminal Defense Attorney for the Job
If you have been accused of a crime, choosing the right attorney is an important decision. It is important to choose an attorney that has the right "fit" for the case and the issues involved. I am a top rated Tucson criminal defense attorney, and over the past 15 years, I've represented people from all walks of life - from doctors, to police officers, to lawyers, to students. Each client I represent gets 100% of my efforts, and no case is "unimportant." Also, every client that is represented by my office is represented by me - not by an associate, or a "junior" lawyer.
Elias Damianakos Former Tucson Felony and Misdemeanor Prosecutor
Elias Damianakos is and experienced Tucson criminal defense attorney, and has handled hundreds of criminal cases. I have worked for the Tucson Prosecutors Office and the Pima County Attorney's Office. I am admitted in Arizona, New York, U.S. District Court in Arizona, and the 9th Cir. U.S. Court of Appeals.
Local, State, and Federal Experience
I am a former felony and misdemeanor prosecutor, and past nominee for prosecutor of the year in Arizona. I have knowledge of local court practices and procedures, as well as experience in many other jurisdictions in Arizona, such as Chandler, Cochise County, Eloy, Gilbert, Maricopa County, Mesa, Nogales, Phoenix, Pima County, Pinal County, Santa Cruz County, Willcox, and Yuma County. This is important because of the way different prosecuting agencies and courts handle criminal cases. For example, a 2nd or 3rd DUI offense may carry a significantly different penalty in Tucson City Court, versus Pima County Justice Court, or Mesa Municipal Court.
