    Best Criminal Traffic lawyer In Town!!!
    I would highly recommend Cary Lackey. Cary is such a God Sent Blessing. He brought my criminal speeding traffic ticket down to a civil matter that saved me from criminal charges going on my record. He walked me through the whole process and was there at every pre- trial conference and court hearing. He will stay in contact with you through your whole trial, until the end. He's an amazing lawyer. Again, I would highly recommend him to anyone.

    Professional all the way. Listened to our situation and determined a plan of action.
  • Chiemela O. Nov 9, 2015
    I hired Mr. Lackey after my involvement in a speeding ticket. Since I was accused of driving criminal speed, Mr.Lackey understood how sensitive my case was and how concerned I was that it would be on my record. When meeting with Mr. Lackey the morning before the trial, he had thoroughly researched ways to strengthen my case and presented a strong defense for dismissal of the ticket altogether. Despite difficult court conditions and a stern judge, Mr. Lackey advocated for a direct verdict during the trial and got my ticket reduced. Although I had to enroll in driving school, my ticket was reduced to a traffic violation and I do not have to face this incident on my record. Mr. Lackey handled the high pressure court situation calmly and professionally the entire time. I am very thankful I chose to hire him, it was worth every penny!

    Mr Lackey is a excellent attorney. When my son was in trouble he assisted. He kept me informed, answered all my questions and responded to all my calls. He informed me every step of the way. He treats his clients with dignity and respect. I would highly refer him to anyone who is facing criminal charges.

    Cary was very knowledgeable in everything I went through. He never had me waiting or questioning anything that was going on in my case. Thank you Cary for everything you have done for me and my family! Best referral I could have ever received to handle my case!

    I was facing my third marijuana possession charge. I knew I had to lawyer up and fight this felony charge I was facing. Carey Lackey was able to keep me from going to jail and I was given probation. Truly a life saver! I couldn't have asked for a better out come.


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I speak with the client over the telephone, or respond to their email, in the most detailed way possible. I try to discover what kind of issues they are facing, and let them know how I can help them.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I graduated from the Arizona State University College of Law and passed the Arizona bar examination in 1995. I have been practicing law for 20-years. I began my career as a Maricopa County Deputy Public Defender, worked for a year as a Staff Attorney with the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco, then returned to the Phoenix area to work for a large law firm in downtown Phoenix (Streich Lang, now Quarles Brady). After that, I worked as a Deputy Maricopa County Attorney, before opening my own practice in 2002.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Every case is different, with different challenges, and, obviously, different pricing.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I always had a strong interest in the law, going back to my childhood. Becoming an attorney was the realization of a childhood dream for me.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Professionals, non-professionals, just regular folks! I have also represented juveniles in delinquency matters, as well as corporations in white collar criminal matters in state and federal court.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Like my father always told me, "you get what you pay for." Experience matters in this business, so, most of the time, the cheapest is not the best.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What is a realistic outcome? What are the different variables at play, here? What can I afford?
