Our Drug Defense Attorneys in Phoenix, AZ Can Help You

We accept cases related to all alleged types and quantities of illegal drugs — marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, LSD, Ecstasy and pharmaceuticals. Our approach is extremely focused. We do in-depth investigations of the facts and laws involved. Did the police do an illegal search? Did they use untrained drug dogs? Did they interrogate you in violation of your constitutional rights? We’ll find out. And we’ll use this information to keep evidence against you out of the courtroom.

Threshold Amounts under Arizona Drug Law

Under Arizona law, convictions for quantities of drugs larger than a “threshold” amount can result in mandatory prison time. The threshold amount is different for each type of drug. For methamphetamine and cocaine, nine grams is enough. For marijuana, the quantity is two pounds. For heroin, one gram.
