As criminal defense lawyer Thomas Hogle fulfills many important roles during the course of a criminal case. He is responsible for defending a person who is charged with a crime. He or she speaks on the client’s behalf. We play this essential role for our clients charged with crimes in Surprise, Arizona.
A criminal defense lawyer is also responsible for talking about the status of the case and negotiating with the prosecutor regarding any particular plea bargain. A criminal defense lawyer may be able to help secure a favorable deal for the defendant that results in a reduction of charges or the possible punishment.
If a plea bargain is not appropriate in your specific case, we will take the case to trial. In a trial, a judge and jury will hear the prosecution’s side of the case (district attorney and law enforcement) and the defense (you and your criminal defense lawyer). After weighing the evidence and hearing arguments, the jury will decide whether you are guilty or not guilty of the charges made against you.
If you were arrested or charged with a crime in Surprise, your trial will take place in the Surprise Municipal Court on 16081 N Civic Center Plaza, Surprise, AZ 85374 or the Maricopa County Superior Court at 201 W. Jefferson Street, Phoenix, AZ 85003

Most criminal defense lawyers in Surprise, AZ will charge what is called a “Flat Fee” to defend you of your criminal or misdemeanor charges. What this means is you will pay a specific amount of money determined by the attorney. There are several variables that are taken into consideration by the attorney as to what the flat fee amount will be. At Canyon State Law we believe that every case is different and so our fees are different for each client.
Ethics rules prevent an attorney from calling themselves “the best” attorney regardless of their win record, the status of cases handled or years of experience. Every legal case and set of circumstances is different just as people are different from one another.
