We Are Here To Fight For You
PREVENT CHARGES FROM BEING FILED:  Sometimes there are windows of opportunity to prevent charges from being filed.  Police may make the arrest, but it is the prosecutor who decides whether to file the charges.  Often times further investigation is needed before the prosecutor can file charges against you.  It is during this time that we contact the prosecutor and negotiate in an attempt to prevent them from filing charges.  In certain circumstances, we also contact the investigating police department to advise them that you are represented by counsel.  That means no interviews unless counsel is present. If you think you are being targeted as a suspect in a crime, contact our office as soon as possible for a consultation.

REDUCED CHARGES:  Sentencing laws in Arizona are extremely harsh.  We will work to negotiate your charges into reduced charges and reduced penalties.  Most criminal cases are unique.  Many different factors affect the ultimate outcome.  The ability to achieve reduced charges and/or penalties will depend on the set of variables for your own individualized case.  What’s important to us is to make sure we understand what makes your case unique and distinct.  Having that understanding is what helps us to negotiate the best possible outcome we can achieve for you.

PRE-TRIAL LITIGATION:  We will file any appropriate motion in an effort to fight your case and whittle down the government’s case against you.  Factors such as a lack of probable cause to arrest you,  unlawful search and seizure,  involuntary confession, and illegal arrest, would all be litigated prior to the start of trial.  If successful, pre-trial litigation can result in the entire case being dismissed or incriminating evidence being prohibited.

JURY TRIAL:  Ms. Willmott is a skilled criminal trial attorney.  Her experience and knowledge in handling numerous jury trials will be to your benefit to protect your constitutional rights and prevent the government from trampling on those rights.

SENTENCING:  It is important for us to understand you!  The more we know about you the better we can present mitigation on your behalf.  Mitigation is not an excuse for criminal behavior, but it is an explanation to help the court understand the difficulties and stumbling blocks you may have faced in your life.  If you are convicted by jury or by way of a plea agreement, we will use mitigation and work hard to persuade the court for more lenient and appropriate punishment.
