How We Can Serve You

Attorneys Joshua Edwards and Brian Petersen fight hard to give their clients a voice. So many times – especially in criminal cases – those charged feel lost in the system and without a voice. We strive to help clients through the difficult process, making sure their voices and their stories are heard.

We routinely handle cases involving:

  • Domestic violence: According to Arizona law, domestic violence can be charged when the victim and defendant are married, previously married, or live together in the same household, have a child in common, victim or defendant is pregnant by the other, or the victim is related to the defendant or his/her spouse by blood.
  • Disorderly conduct: A police officer has the right to charge someone with disorderly conduct when the individual is disturbing the peace, drunk in public, or loitering. We represent individuals facing all types of disorderly conduct charges.
  • Criminal damage: The charges will vary depending on the value of the property damaged. With charges this serious, now is not the time to take your chances with a public defender. Instead, seek the legal representation you deserve at Edwards & Petersen | PLC.
  • Criminal speeding: In Arizona, a criminal ticket is a serious issue for you and your future. If you are found guilty of the charge, you will permanently have a criminal record. Avoid this harsh penalty with the help of Edwards & Petersen | PLC.
  • Assault: Arizona law defines assault as intentionally causing physical injury to another person, placing another person in reasonable apprehension of impending injury, or knowingly touching another person with the intent to cause bodily injury or to provoke the person.
