Probation Violations

If you're on probation as part of your criminal sentence, violating the terms of probation often means it’s revoked, and you finish the remainder of your sentence in prison or jail. Some people may unwittingly violate their probation; a Flagstaff criminal lawyer can help justify your violation. 

Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile offenders are treated differently than adults, both in terms of sentencing and whether the charge stays on their permanent record. Skilled Flagstaff criminal defense lawyers can help prevent a youthful misjudgment from haunting your child for the rest of their life. 

Gun Crimes

Gun Crimes

Gun crimes in Arizona encompass crimes in which a firearm is used or unlawful possession of a firearm. It also includes how a firearm is transported (concealed carry or open carry) and where it is taken (it’s a crime to bring a firearm to a school, for example).


A person who encourages, requests, or commands another to engage in a specific action that constitutes a misdemeanor or felony is considered soliciting the misdemeanor or felony. The level of charge depends on what crime is solicited; i.e., felony solicitation is soliciting another party to engage in a felony. 

Failure to Appear

If you are out of jail on bond, the terms of your release include appearing in any court actions, like a hearing or your trial. If you fail to appear for a scheduled court date, a warrant is issued for your arrest, and your bond will likely be revoked. 


Expungement is the legal method of removing a crime from your permanent criminal record, placing you at the status you were before being charged with the crime and reinstating your legal rights. Some criminal matters in Arizona cannot be expunged, like certain sexual or violent offenses and some gun crimes.

I, unfortunately, had a felony charge that was committed prior to having my first child and securing my salary position as a software engineer. I called BrandonWhiteLaw and had a very pleasant conversation, made a deal, secured Nicholas Spare(associate of Brandon White Law)  as my attorney and he immediately got to work! Not only did Nick and his paralegal help throughout the case, but truly their entire firm is so helpful :)

They are so polite, prompt, and helpful every time you call, always answering with, “who do I have the pleasure of talking to today?” Which really makes you feel welcomed and special.

While navigating the case and monthly payments, Shannon and Bree and every other person who answered the phone was so helpful and accommodating. They make it VERY VERY obvious that you’re not just a client with the care and attention and help they extend. I truly felt like home there during this very stressful time.

Nick and the firm fought very hard on my behalf, helping me avoid all major punishment by helping me get probation :)
