Violent and dangerous crimes receive a lot of attention in the media and are often what people think of first when asked to name a criminal offense. Because there is so much attention paid to crimes such as homicide and aggravated assault, prosecutors often bring charges without fully investigating their cases.
Their motivations are many — they don’t want to appear soft on crime, they hope that positive headlines will help their careers and they truly wish to put criminals in prison. Given the high profile and complicated factors involved in violent and dangerous crime cases, it is critical to have an experienced and knowledgeable defense lawyer if you have been charged with one of these offenses.
Violent Crime Lawyer in Phoenix
At my Phoenix-area law firm, the Law Offices of Howard A. Snader, LLC, I offer clients charged with violent and dangerous crimes an aggressive and thoroughly researched defense. As an attorney practicing criminal law since 1989, I have the experienced needed to build strong defenses.

Examples of My Cases
I have successfully defended clients against charges including:
- Aggravated assault
- Weapons offenses
- Disorderly conduct involving a gun
My success in major felony cases such as these is based on my ability to identify weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. I work long and hard to find the missing evidence or witness. I work to find mistakes with the investigation and with the handling of evidence, mistakes in the charges and mistakes in interviewing witnesses. These mistakes can add up to an acquittal or dismissal of the charges against my client.
