Criminal Law

questions & answers

Question: Are there any resources that provide free or reduced cost defense for criminal misdemeanors in Phoenix? I cannot afford an attorney since I have been living pay check to pay check trying to pay off a $3000 title, but I do not qualify for a court appointed attorney ( bc state not seeking jail time) and do not qualify for any of the reduced/free legal aid programs on this site since without deducting bills I make about $2000 a month. Please help, as I do not want to defend myself at trial for criminal matters alone. It seems so unfair and unjust.

Answer: You may want to contact the Legal Learn at 866-637-5341 to see if you qualify for the Modest Means Project. If eligible, you can have a one hour consultation for $75.
