You are facing Methamphetamine charges in the State of Arizona, a zero-tolerance state, and you may be wondering about your future. Our founder and head criminal defense attorney, Ryan Michael Garvey, understands. He knows the tactics and procedures of the prosecutor’s office and he has kept thousands of people out of jail and prison with their futures intact.

We consider our founding lawyer as one of the nation’s most successful trial attorneys because he was trained by the U.S. Justice Department and has been expertly trained in prosecutorial tactics. He anticipates the prosecution’s next move because he used to be the prosecution. Before he founded Sonoran Law Group, Mr. Garvey was a County Prosecutor – and he was undefeated at trial. There is no better experience a criminal defense attorney can have and there is hardly any better record of success than his from when he was a prosecutor.

The charges you currently face are ones that our criminal defense team knows and understands well. Arizona Revised Statues, ARS 13-3407, describes this crimes as the possession or use of a dangerous drug, in this specific case, classified as Methamphetamines. This drug charge is particularly scary in Arizona because the punishments can be very serious and have particularly harsh sentences for those convicted. To discuss the details surrounding Proposition 200 in Arizona and its potential to protect your rights, contact the Sonoran Law Group today.

What Is Considered a Dangerous Drug in Arizona?

This very serious drug statute, ARS 13-3407, prohibits a person from knowingly possessing or using a dangerous drug. A dangerous drug is defined as any prescription narcotic pain killer, prescription antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication possessed or used without having a script. This could also involve any other illegal drug, except for marijuana.

This illegal drug may be a methamphetamine, cocaine, opium, mushrooms, or some other type of illegal substance envisioned within the statutes. Because your charge involves Methamphetamines, you should seek advice from Sonoran Law Group immediately and without delay.

Book a consultation – it is worth every second. We can discuss your charges and help you move forward.

Past Case Results We Have Achieved

Now let’s talk about something that we think may help you choose us. Results matter. Consider this result the Sonoran Law Group achieved for a recent client that faced three felonies, including possession of methamphetamines, and who faced a rather lengthy period of incarceration. Our client, K.O. (we have used initials to protect the client’s privacy rights) was standing in front of a department store in downtown Mesa in the evening when a police officer stopped her boyfriend to investigate a 911 call regarding a noise disturbance in the business parking lot. Soon, the investigation carried over to our client despite the fact that K.O. was the alleged victim in an altercation. Nevertheless, the couple emptied their pockets for officers, and the contents got K.O. arrested for possession of methamphetamines, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

The Sonoran Law Group resolved this case with no charges filed. (To discuss the strategy used in this case and how we can use similar tactics in other cases, please click here to talk to us!)

In fact, the story doesn’t end there. Within a short period of time, our same client K.O. was charged with four more serious felonies, which should have involved a lengthy sentence of DOC / prison. Once again, Mr. Garvey and his criminal defense team went to work. K.O. got a mere punishment of probation, community service and a small fine. It’s not miracles that win cases; its hard work, dedication to our clients, and beyond aggressive litigation team skills that gets the job done, time and time again.
