THE FINEFROCK LAW FIRM PLLC is an Arizona criminal defense law firm dedicated to helping people by providing an aggressive defense for clients who are being investigated or have been arrested and charged with any misdemeanor or felony offense, including the following criminal matters:

PRE-CHARGE / INVESTIGATION MATTERS

The Finefrock Law Firm PLLC offers pre-charge / investigation services for criminal matters where formal charges have not yet been filed. During an investigation, police officers will attempt to gather damning evidence and elicit incriminating statements from an accused person. After being retained, The Finefrock Law Firm PLLC will inform our clients of their constitutional rights and contact law enforcement to inform them that any future contact must be done through Attorney Marcus “Rocky” Finefrock, Esq. In essence, an information barrier will be constructed in order to prevent any misinterpretation of statements or mistakes an accused may make by making any statements or taking any impulsive actions on their own without benefit of counsel. If needed, The Finefrock Law Firm PLLC will conduct an investigation to gather favorable evidence and obtain beneficial statements from others and engage in preliminary negotiations to divert criminal allegations, to resolve the matter informally, to reduce the proposed criminal charges or to ultimately prevent criminal charges from being filed. We may also assist with your surrender to law enforcement, if necessary, in order to attempt a peaceful entry to the criminal justice system. If you or a loved one is being investigated for a crime, take the matter seriously and immediately contact The Finefrock Law Firm PLLC at 480.584.4886 to protect your rights.

THE FINEFROCK LAW FIRM PLLC is dedicated to helping people who have been arrested in Arizona. Marcus “Rocky” Finefrock, Esq. is an aggressive criminal defense lawyer who is ready to handle tough cases in any Arizona court. Rocky has a reputation as a tough criminal defense attorney who uncompromisingly represents his clients’ rights by attempting to reduce the criminal charges or fighting against a criminal conviction, allowing you and your loved ones to once again move forward with your lives.

TAKE YOUR MATTER SERIOUSLY

Being accused of a crime is a serious matter and not one to be taken lightly. Jails are full of innocent men and women who have been victims of the criminal justice system and have fallen through the cracks. It is important that you fully understand your legal rights and know when to enforce them to prevent you or a loved one from being unjustly accused and dragged through the court system. The sooner you get an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side, the better chance you have of protecting your rights.

DO NOT PLEAD GUILTY

It is imperative that you retain an aggressive criminal defense attorney as soon as possible so that you can explore your options and realize certain defenses. An accused’s failure to question and force the government to a certain standard by pleading guilty would be giving up valuable constitutional rights and privileges that could ultimately affect the amount of time you spend in jail and the amount of fines, fees and jail costs owed, without receiving anything in return.

DO NOT TAKE LEGAL ADVICE FROM A PROSECUTOR OR A COP

Often times, there are many things the prosecution does not want you to know. For instance, the government may not have all the witnesses available or witnesses needed to prosecute their case or the prosecution may have evidentiary issues proving every element of the crime. Also, the government may have exculpatory evidence that could prove your innocence. Great things can sometimes happen when the defense is ready for trial and the prosecution is not. A rush to judgment to plead guilty after speaking with a prosecutor or a family friend who is a law enforcement officer might prevent you from the realization of certain potential defenses that could dismiss your case, reduce the charges to a lesser-included offense, or give you a chance to consider alternatives that might help you to avoid the maximum penalties, fines and typical inconveniences associated with someone who is not represented by counsel.

THE DISMISSAL OR ACQUITTAL OF YOUR CHARGE IS POSSIBLE

Every criminal case is different. There are different facts and circumstances leading up to the reasons why a police officer arrests you for a criminal offense. Each accused person may have a different response to interrogation questions posed throughout the investigation. Each arrest may involve an array of law enforcement officers with varying levels of competence and experience. One suspect’s case could result in a very different outcome, though both suspects are charged with the same offense.

COMMON CRIMINAL DEFENSES
