Negligent Homicide Dismissed

On September 22, 2022, a Maricopa County Superior judge determined there was no probable cause and dismissed the criminal case of negligent homicide against a woman defended by the Nava Law Firm. The Nava Law Firm always believed that this woman was WRONGFULLY charged with the negligent homicide of an on-duty police officer, and we worked diligently to identify weaknesses in the prosecution's case along with alleged corruption. “It was a relief. I feel like I can finally breathe, I can move forward with my life, this has been a very difficult process. It’s been three-and-a-half years…” - the Nava Law Firm’s client

We kept the client from serving years in prison.

Theft of Means of Transportation

A man was out on a walk and was stopped by police because he was in the area of an attempted vehicle theft. The man maintained his innocence, but the owner of the truck identified him as the man he saw attempting to steal it. We worked tirelessly to prepare a defense and get the prosecution to see reason.
