Defending One Person's Rights Means Defending Everyone's Rights
Explaining to his readers how an oppressive communist regime had taken over in Russia, novelist Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote, simply, "We didn't love our freedom enough." Each attack on our individual freedoms, no matter how small it may seem, can open the door to a complete loss of it.
When you are charged with a crime, you come face-to-face with the potential the loss of your freedom. Whether you were pulled over in your vehicle or arrested after a search warrant, chances are that you are looking for an attorney who places the highest value on the full restoration of your freedom.
That is exactly why I became a criminal defense lawyer. I love my freedom, and I know that the criminal trial court is the only legal forum in which the freedom of individuals can be defended against government intrusion.
My name is Steven D. West. I tried my first case in 1984 and have been defending the rights of clients accused of a wide range of crimes — from high-profile homicides to misdemeanors — throughout Hawaii and Arizona, ever since.
If you have been accused of a crime, the U.S. Constitution provides you with the right to a defense. Contact my Tucson criminal defense law firm or call my office at 520-468-6791, or toll free at 866-603-9939 to discuss the charges against you.
Over 25 Years of Criminal Defense Experience
Your rights and your freedom are on the line when you are involved with the criminal justice system. I take your case very seriously. I thoroughly investigate the facts of each case and any evidence the state's prosecutor or U.S. attorney may have against you. My goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for you while keeping you fully informed of the strengths and weaknesses of your individual case.
I know that I can go into the courtroom, question witnesses effectively and defend you. I will fully explain the risks involved with trial, and it will be your decision whether we will take your case in that direction. I will also explain the law, the facts and how the law applies to your facts. After you have all the information, then you can decide, with my help, how to proceed.
Each case is unique, and I strive to treat each client as an individual. There is no one defense strategy that applies to every case.
