I interviewed many attorneys for my case, but all of them seemed to only be interested in how I would be paying them. I didn't feel any of the other attorneys even had an interest in getting on the phone with me unless I feigned interest in hiring them. Matt was the only attorney who contacted me directly, took the time to go over details of my case and overall put me immediately at ease. He gave me a number where I could, and have- Texted or called day or night, and Matt always responds immediately. Matt was not the least expensive attorney I could have hired, and he wasn't the most expensive...But his attention to detail, his knowledge in the criminal defense world is something that is inherently Matt. If he wanted to, he could easily demand a blank check fee schedule, as he is worth every penny, but instead he offers a flat rate fee, with no surprises or hidden costs. I can now say in the two months he has been my attorney, I feel safe and protected from possible prosecution. I am confident Matt will see me safely thru this dark side of my life. I will find out tomorrow how this journey will proceed, but I know with Matt standing beside me I am prepared to stand up and fight for myself, and not be strong armed into a plea deal or worse just because I have previous criminal history. Do yourself a favor, call and speak with Matt right away! He will not disappoint. By the way, Matt is not only my attorney, I now call him a friend. This is the attorney you want!

I have reached out to attorney Matt Hayes. He was very kind,and very understanding of my situtation. Matt constantly assures me that it’s okay, and he’s always available. If you are looking for someone who is looking for your best interest and willing to actually listen to your needs and worries during a difficult situation this is the right attorney for you. He also provides you his contact information where he can be reached at all times unlike some attorneys who you’ll leave a voicemail and never get a return phone call, which can be very frustrating. I would highly recommend attorney Matt Hayes... Hire Him!

So far so good..... Attorney Marc Lessow, in The Scholl Law Group, has proven to be well versed in family law. Don't let his calm demeanor fool you....this man has fight when the situation calls for it. If you need a family attorney who listens to you no matter how crazy your situation might sound, studies your case, gives you an honest opinion with no hype, and is 110% prepared once in court....I have no qualms in recommending Attorney Marc Lessow.

Choosing the right lawyer for you and your circumstances will be a large influence on your case and this place has them.

My AZ Lawyers is a team of highly educated and dedicated lawyers and support staff. In their bankruptcy department they have put together a knowledgeable team dedicated to helping you thorough these sticky situations. This team includes Morgan Mccain who has practiced bankruptcy law estate planning and probate law in multiple states for over 7 years. There is also Heather Chase who you can tell has a true passion for helping those in need, not only that but she had her own firm for more than 4 years. Behind these two you have some amazing paralegal and legal staff Jennifer, Richard, Sherri and Anna. In the Divorcé and Family Law department there is a caring and exuberant team there ready to help you. Giancarl Sapelli is confident in his practices and defiantly has the experience to back it up, he is kind, logical and knowledgeable and will be there to walk you through your case expertly.

The Lawyers here take the time and dedication it takes to fine tune their craft and continue to learn and do more. In the Criminal Department you will meet Rob Curigliano he has many years of legal experience and has the education background to back it.

After costs incurred after my mother suffered from cancer, I was forced to declare bankruptcy in 2014. Having no legal experiences up until that point, I contacted MyAZLawyers. (I should mention out of the gate that this website really doesn’t do them justice and looks sketchy—they need a better web developer!) At any rate, the office staff and the attorneys are professional, thorough, and really, really know their stuff. They are busy people—but they’re on your side from the beginning. It is an absolute pleasure working with this law firm all the way from the administrative staff, to the legal assistants, to the attorneys themselves. I truly never expected to be taken care and to have my case handled the way it was. Recently (going on two years since my case/discharge), I received a call (which I now know to be a scam) from an organization claiming I had defrauded a financial institution, committed breach of contract, and committed theft by deception –referring to a 2010 payday loan application online (I’ve never taken out a payday loan in my life). This organization assured me that my case was going to court and that I was going to be served and that a formal complaint had been filed. Terrified, I contacted my attorney (Morgan McCain)—and he not only put my mind at ease immediately—but actually ended up calling said company to gather information about the “pending litigation” and, in a beautifully professional manner, ended up indirectly proving to me that they were a scam and that the charges and debt they referenced were not legitimate at all. (Think end-of-your-life mentality for 24-48 hours transforming into almost crying-laughing, joy, and immeasurable relief listening to the exchange between ultra-savvy and professional lawyer and fraudulent/unethical company.) It was something they likely deal with daily, but to me it was nothing short of superman coming in to save the day. Even after my bankruptcy was discharged, to them I was still a client and they took care of me. If you have an issue, go see these folks. (Especially recommend Morgan McCain if you get any say in the matter.) James K 12/2/2016

This group is just amazing! First of all, they are very compassionate and professional. Having to file bankruptcy is stressful enough, but they made me feel calm and respected. They respond to emails and calls very quickly, and answer any questions I have, and truly seem to care. They were also upfront about all of the fees, what the payments would be, and NO hidden costs like some attorneys. My attorney is Morgan McCain, who is very kind. Also Jennifer & Cheyenne have been really helpful and nice. I would highly recommend this office!

I highly recommend Dana Hogle as a criminal law attorney – he is a genius in the courthouse. He has a great relationship with many of the other lawyers, judges, and courthouse workers. Dana represented me earlier this year and I was extremely impressed with him. He handled my case very professionally – was straight forward and honest with his game plane, while being respectful and understanding. As a result, my case was DISMISSED!! Thanks again we need more juvenile defense attorneys like you.

Great from the first time I had a consultation with Mr. Hogle. He was awesome and laid out the facts about my case that a lot of other attorneys I met with prior didn't bring up. I was told that my DUI case was going to be an up hill battle, because of my situation, were the other DUI attorneys I talked to made it seen like no big deal and they could get it done. I feel they just wanted my money, but Mr. Hogle was honest about the facts. I appreciated that, and that's why I hired him.

I got arrested for four different charges. After speaking with a few attorneys in Mesa I decided to go with my gut and hire Mr. Hogle. The entire process is more dramatic than anyone could understand unless you've gone through it yourself. After months of fighting to prove my innocence I had all my charges dismissed with prejudice. I am so thankful for the fight in figure that Mr. Hogle brought to the choir room each and every time

I hired Michael for a misdemeanor DUI after talking to a few lawyers and made the decision based on his timely response, on this professional conduct and affordable cost. The entire court process was a breeze and he had me informed and moved the court date until a time that I could adjust my schedule to make time for jail time and probation. Although he did advise me to review the plea with an immigration attorney it slipped my mind because of my tight schedule and unfortunately there were Immigration consequences to the case. After I got out of the mandatory jail time, ICE got involved. When I tried to get in touch with Michael from within ICE detention he was prompt to respond and coordinated with my Immigration Attorney to make sure she had everything she needed to help me. Unfortunately after three long, very strenuous and utterly frustrating time in Immigration detention, I decided to leave the country. Since I had to stay in detention for the whole time, I couldn't finish home detention on the outside, nor did I have access to any communication medium other than a telephone for a few hours a day. Michael was supportive and understanding of this unintended traumatic situation and put every effort to help me on the pending DUI case on the outside. I still have a court date pending for the home detention I missed, but Michael is working actively for me to have that dropped by substituting it for the time I spent in Immigration detention. Currently, my life is on hold because I can't apply for a visa until this case gets dropped and I am out of the country, but with Michael helping me I am confident we will see resolution soon. I recommend Michael for this professional conduct, his ability to emphasize, his prompt communication and addition to his competence as a DUI attorney.

Michael Pittman is an extremely knowledgeable, talented, and hard working attorney. I trust him more than any other attorney that I have met, and I would refer him to anyone that I know. He was patient with me, responded to my questions timely, and he got me the result that I wanted. He gave me all of the information that I needed to make an informed decision, and kept me informed through the whole process. I could not think higher of Mr. Pittman, or his services.

A truly skilled attorney. I found Ryan's contact info after an extensive search online for a local Phoenix area attorney to handle my case. I spoke with several attorneys before deciding that Ryan was the one that had the credentials, experience, and after a conversation seemed by far the most knowledgeable to handle my situation. I was shopping for not only the best price, but also the best attorney and I honestly feel I got both. He was the most reasonably priced and had a payment plan! He was very good at taking my calls or text and really kept me in the loop. I always felt a self of relief during the stressful situation with the thought of "this is one clever guy" kept coming to mind. He is confident and clever. He for sure knows the tricks of his trade. He was a major reason for my case being dropped. I highly recommend! KG

Ryan represented me on a criminal case where I was charged for something that was not accurately reflective of the situation. I live in a city where the police are quite overzealous and have a reputation for exacerbating circumstances beyond what the normal response should be. I felt strongly that I did not commit a crime, and Ryan took that to heart, heard my position and then fought for it. It would have been easy to settle for a plea bargain, but Ryan really fought for me, articulated the facts to the district attorney and ultimately was able to get the charges dropped. I could not have wished for a better outcome. I highly recommend his services.

Mr. Ariano helped with my grandson's DUI charge. The first time I spoke to him over the phone I knew he was what I was looking for. He had a very calming way of speaking and he seemed very honest. He always got back to me and my son quickly with any inquires I had, and he did it himself, not through channels of secretaries and or other lawyers.

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!

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.

Michael Munoz is the best DUI Attorney out there. Going into my DUI had no clue what to expect and to be honest I was terrified about the effect it would have on my life and my job. When first meeting Michael I knew he was the one. He sat me down and went step by step what to expect during the DUI process from both the Court System and DMV Side of the process. Once you have Michael Munoz on your side they will set you up with an online account where you can track all your documents and court dates which makes it easy to keep up with your case but Michael and Anna are always available if you have questions. He was able to get me an awesome deal from his skills and expertise he has acquired through out his professional career. There is no doubt that Munoz Law should be your first and only call to get you through the DUI Process. Also, Anna is so great and is readily available to answer any of your questions! - Brian R.

Finding yourself in a scary situation can make it very difficult to move forward. Having Michael Munoz on your side makes all the difference.

I couldn't have asked for a better attorney during this difficult time. My situation seemed very helpless and the outcome was much better than I could have hope for. Charged with a super extreme DUI that was plead down to a regular DUI Michael Munoz definently worked very hard for me.
