If you or a loved one has been charged with a violent crime in Arizona, you need immediate legal counsel. That is why the defense lawyers at Paradise Valley Law are available to take your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Contact us today Toll Free at 888-8-FELONY for a free consultation.

Crimes that might otherwise be a high-level misdemeanor or low-level felony can be charged as major felonies if dangerous allegations are present. Any of these dangerous allegations automatically escalate violent crimes to mandatory prison time, even on a first offense.

Under Arizona law A.R.S. §13-105 , a "Dangerous offense" means an offense involving the discharge, use or threatening exhibition of a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument or the intentional or knowing infliction of serious physical injury on another person. If you or someone you know has been charged with a Dangerous crime, call today for a consultation. 

Sentencing guidelines for Dangerous offenses are much harsher and you need an experienced attorney to help.




Even in plea negotiations, the prosecution will usually demand the minimum prison time:

  • Use of a deadly weapon – using or carrying a gun while committing a crime

  • Use of a dangerous instrument – can include a knife, baseball bat, beer bottle, etc.

  • Serious bodily injury – life-threatening or lasting injuries caused by violence

Our Phoenix violent crime Defense Lawyers will look at all aspects of your case, from your arrest to any available defenses.
