Choose Your Defense Attorney Carefully

If you, a loved one, or your business is threatened by a criminal charge or investigation, you need a criminal defense lawyer who is fully prepared to protect you and defend your constitutional rights.

Grand Jury Proceedings

Under both federal and state law, a grand jury issues indictments. An experienced attorney can advise a person on how to handle a grand jury investigation.

Illegal Search and Seizure

The United States and Arizona constitutions protect the people from unreasonable searches and seizures. If any evidence has been obtained during an illegal search, your lawyer must move quickly to suppress that evidence.

Glen

"I was charged with some very serious crimes which would have sent me to prison, cost me my career, and my reputation.I went to josh after a recommendation and meeting with several other lawyers in town. 100% I made the right choice going with josh. He believed in the case, was always attentive and available, and most importantly was extremely aggressive in my defense. I had my bogus charges dismissed after josh led a very aggressive investigation to clear my name and the accusations and am thankful and relieved. There are only a handful of lawyers in Tucson to consider let alone hire if you are charged with a crime. Josh is one of them."

Chris

"I hired Joshua Hamilton to take over my son's case that was not going well. Joshua Hamilton has been an aggressive, caring and direct attorney. He did what my son's previous attorney could not do before I fired him. He got my son's case dismissed. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Joshua Hamilton."

"Josh has helped me with multiple incidences over the past few years. He knew how to handle every situation that had come up during those cases. He told me not to worry from the beginning because he was confident that he could get the charges dismissed, and he did every time. Josh made the process very easy and was open to any questions along the way so I knew exactly what was going on. He is very knowledgeable about the law while being professional and kind."

"Clay defended me for three DUI arrests many years ago. He made no unrealistic promises, and he navigated through my cases with marvelous precision. His patience, sensibility and reasoning resulted in an outcome far less severe than what any highly advertised lawyer could have provided. If you're facing criminal charges, call this guy first."
