Charged With A Crime? Take Action Now.

A criminal conviction is a serious thing. It can lead to probation, fines and other penalties. Depending on the seriousness of the charge, jail or prison time could be involved. Many people facing seemingly minor criminal charges simply plead guilty and try to move on with their lives.

This is a big mistake.

For instance, a conviction may make it very difficult to find a job or to take a new job. In certain situations, a conviction may limit your right to bear arms. The fact is, the stakes are very high. When you have a skilled, knowledgeable lawyer on your side, you will get the information you need to make wise decisions about your case.

At Keith A. Hammond, P.C., we represent people from all walks of life facing criminal allegations. Most of our clients are citizens who have had few, if any, previous brushes with the law. For instance, our law firm often represents students from Northern Arizona University. We defend against all types of charges, including:

  • DUI/drunk driving: We investigate all the evidence in DUI cases to identify your strongest legal options.
  • Domestic violence: A conviction for domestic violence can lead to penalties that affect your personal, professional and family lives.
  • Assault: Assault charges can arise after a bar fight, domestic dispute or another confrontation.
  • Sex-related charges: Few crimes carry the stigma as a sex crime. Contact us as soon as you have been charged, so we can build the strongest defense possible.
  • Drug charges: We represent people charged with all types of drug crimes, including drug possession, possession with intent to sell, drug paraphernalia charges and more.

With more than 25 years of legal experience, Flagstaff criminal defense attorney Keith Hammond has established a strong reputation for his efforts in negotiation and litigation. In every case, he looks closely at the evidence to find all possible defenses. For example, if the police made an illegal search and seizure in a drug case, any evidence resulting from this search must be suppressed.

In many cases, our role is simply to show the prosecution that our client deserves and needs a second chance. Keith Hammond has successfully negotiated many plea agreements that protect his clients from the worst consequences of a conviction. Of course, there are also times when there is no alternative but to take a case to trial. Keith Hammond has tried 41 cases before a jury over his career. As a result, he understands how to present a case that is likely to resonate with a jury. However your case is ultimately resolved, we will be at your side each step of the way, answering your questions and addressing your concerns.
