Arizona Criminal Defense

Serving all of Arizona with Offices in Tempe,
Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Mesa

When hiring a criminal defense lawyer, you will need to discuss your legal options. Attorneys approach cases differently based on the specific facts of your situation as well as their own experience, skill, and education. When you hire Oliverson & Huss Law PLLC you benefit from a former judge and prosecutors applying their experience to your case.

If you or a loved one faces criminal charges, it is vital that you hire an experienced and aggressive Arizona criminal defense attorney immediately to ensure the best possible result. Once you retain representation, your lawyer will handle everything from routine paperwork to cross-examining witnesses in the courtroom. Your attorney can also lay out the best defense strategies for your case’s specific circumstances.

To bolster your case, your attorney may introduce evidence and interview witnesses, with the goal to create reasonable doubt that you committed any of the charged crimes. Your attorney may even present a self-defense argument if you are facing charges like assault, manslaughter, or murder, in which case you may argue that you had to use force to protect yourself.

We offer free consultations, during which you can discuss the specifics of your case and learn about your options. Call (480) 616-8229 today.

Personalized Defense Solutions

Not only experienced, but effective.

Judicial matters can be complicated, and we are on hand to answer your questions and keep you informed on every aspect of your case. We take great pride in using our experience to benefit you. A primary reason for our success is the in-depth knowledge of our firm’s founders, attorneys Derek Oliverson and Jeremy Huss.

Derek Oliverson is a former police officer, prosecutor, and judge. This rare combination of experience provides Derek with direct insight into the parties involved in a criminal trial. Derek is very experienced in police procedure, DUI investigations, and is one of the few attorneys that has testified in a DUI trial as a police officer, prosecuted a DUI trial, and also presided over a DUI trial as a judge. With this unique combination of experience, Derek is now protecting people’s rights as a criminal defense attorney. He provides invaluable insight to clients based on his well-rounded experience.

Jeremy Huss is a former 13-year prosecutor with extensive experience involving the most serious crimes in Arizona, including homicide, child sex crimes, sexual assault, drug trafficking, and all types of violent crimes. Jeremy also has significant experience with DNA, ballistics, and fingerprint evidence. This experience provides our firm with a thorough understanding of the legal system and prosecutorial strategies. We know the tactics the prosecution will likely use, and we devise our legal defense to counter these tactics.
