A few years ago I got into some trouble with the law and was looking at a pretty hefty jail sentence. Once I was able to post bail, I immediately started looking for an attorney to represent me. I talked to a few different locations and each one fed me the same story about how everything was going to be alright and that they would dedicate an entire team to my case...Complete lies. When I met with Mr. Lawson, he told me the truth and was very straight forward. He told me that what I had done was serious and that I could be facing some serious consequences. Of course this would freak anyone out but the truth is better than a sack of lies.
On our first day of court I could immediately tell that Mr. Lawson knew what he was doing. Since he was a public defender for sometime before going into private practice, he was familiar with all of the judges and knew the styles and patterns of every prosecuting attorney. Since my case dragged on for roughly two years, I was assigned several different judges and prosecuting attorneys, each of which Mr. Lawson knew and was very familiar with.
By the end, Mr. Lawson was able to go above and beyond my expectations. At first, I was given a seven year sentence, by the end, I was only sentenced to one week in tent city which I did not have to serve due to an error made by a judge. I was also granted my bail money in full and was allowed to finish college out of state. The initial charges would have been a Felony 3, by the end, I was charged with a Misdemeanor which will be removed from my record within 3 years. If you have committed a crime, I would highly advise Slade Lawson as your representation, you might not have the same situation that I did, but at least you will know that you are being represented by the best attorney in Arizona.
