Phoenix Criminal Defense Attorney

Why Hire a Former Prosecutor

When you are entangled with the criminal justice system, it will be entirely necessary to secure the best legal defense possible. There are two types of criminal defense attorneys, those who have worked as a former prosecuting attorney and those who have not. Naturally, an attorney with previous experience working for the "other side" of the law will have an intimate knowledge of how the prosecution thinks and acts, whereas an attorney, who has not worked as a former prosecutor, would not have access to the same level of knowledge or wisdom merely because they have not personally worked as a prosecutor themselves.

As a Phoenix criminal defense attorney, what sets Joshua S. Davidson apart from the rest of the criminal defense attorneys? He is a former prosecutor who knows the ins and the outs of the criminal justice system. He applies his exclusive experience as a former prosecutor to his criminal defense cases because he knows how to maximize his experience to the full extent of the law. This well-rounded knowledge of both "sides of the fence" allows him to work his case from both angles. He understands what weaknesses to look for in a prosecutor's case and he can use those weaknesses to his client's advantage when negotiating or when in court.

As a felony prosecutor, Mr. Davidson has conducted more than 70 trials to a jury, and he has also tried hundreds of cases before judges. Due to his successful career as a prosecuting attorney, he is well known among Arizona prosecutors and judges, and he maintains a reputation for fighting aggressively and passionately for each of his clients. Today, he focuses his practice strictly on criminal defense law.

Former Prosecutor Turned Criminal Defense Attorney

Before becoming a criminal defense lawyer, Joshua S. Davidson effectively prosecuted all types of criminal offenses ranging from DUI, to domestic violence, to drug cases, aggravated assault and murder. The majority of his time was spent working in the Major Crimes Division of the Maricopa County Attorney's Office where he personally handled felony domestic violence cases. During his career as a prosecutor, he argued multiple motions to dismiss and completed dozens of jury trials involving charges that ranged from simple DUI to felony murder cases. Joshua S. Davidson is licensed to practice in all Arizona state and federal courts.

Attorney Davidson has received recognition throughout the community and from former clients that he successfully defended. The firm has been recognized by the Better Business Bureau as an accredited business and the legal team holds membership in the Scottsdale Bar Association, State Bar of Arizona, Arizona Attorneys for Criminal Justice, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the National College for DUI Defense.

When you are selecting an attorney to represent you in possibly the greatest challenge of your life, you're going to want to choose someone who had a successful career as a prosecuting attorney before entering the field of criminal defense. Knowledge is power and only an attorney with prior experience as a prosecutor would have an edge over the prosecution. When it's your future and your liberty that is at stake, you can't afford to choose someone who lacks experience working on both sides of the law.
