Why Criminal Defense in Tucson, Arizona Matters
Arizona has the 6th highest incarceration rate in the United States. Prosecutors in Arizona are increasingly seeking longer sentences for individuals charged with crimes, and often seek to impose mandatory minimum prison sentences. Many prosecutor offices in Arizona have designed specialty divisions such as domestic violence units and property crimes units that focus resources and personnel with the one objective of a getting a conviction. These units are heavily funded by the government, and are staffed with highly trained prosecutors and legal support staff. In today’s ever increasing prosecutorial climate, your best defense against the weight of the resources of the state is to have an experienced Tucson criminal defense attorney by your side.

Importance of Selecting an Tucson Criminal Defense Attorney with a Proven Track Record of Success
In Arizona, a criminal arrest or conviction can cost a person their job, their housing, and can even affect child custody rights. I have successfully defended hundreds of people from various types of backgrounds – including doctors, teachers, nurses, lawyers, military and law enforcement personnel, and business people – in a variety of types of criminal cases including murder, drug offenses, domestic violence, probation violations, criminal traffic offenses, driving under the influence (DUI), theft, and shoplifting. With over 15 years of experience, Elias Damianakos understands that defending yourself against “the system” has become more and more difficult as prosecution offices have unlimited resources to prosecute you. Because of this, choosing the right attorney is very important decision. It is important to choose an attorney that has the right “fit” for the case and the issues involved.
