Misdemeanor Criminal Defense

Tucson, Arizona, Misdemeanor Criminal Defense Lawyer Douglas W. Taylor

Many people don’t know that misdemeanor offenses can still have a drastic, long-lasting impact on your life, despite their typically lesser punishments. That is why misdemeanor criminal charges should be taken every bit as seriously as their felony counterparts.

At the Law Office of Douglas W. Taylor, I pride myself on offering aggressive, experienced misdemeanor criminal defense representation to clients throughout Tucson and Southern Arizona. I help clients understand their rights and the options available to them while seeking a resolution to their misdemeanor case.

Some of the types of misdemeanors I commonly handle are:

  • Most drunk driving (DUI/DWI) charges (though some may be considered a felony)
  • Traffic violations including speeding tickets, reckless driving and driving with a suspended license
  • Minor drug offenses (such as possession of a small amount of marijuana)
  • Shoplifting
  • Domestic violence offenses

These are just a few of the misdemeanor criminal charges that I can help you with. I can meet with you to review your case and determine the best way to pursue a resolution. I will explore every option in mounting your misdemeanor criminal defense.
