An attorney with the skills and experience you need when facing the fight of your life
When you are arrested and charged with a criminal offense, the consequences you face can be severe. Depending on the charges, you could be looking at expensive fines, months in jail or years in prison, and even the death penalty if convicted of a capital crime. In addition to criminal penalties, you could lose your driver’s license or a professional license, and your ability to get or keep a good job. Persons convicted of crimes in Arizona soon find out how that conviction impacts every area of their life, from where they can live and work to their reputation in the neighborhood, community and even their relationships with friends and families. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to take any criminal charge seriously and secure the best legal representation you can get.

Experience and success across the spectrum of criminal law
While Blumberg & Associates is highly experienced in murder trials and the most serious violent felonies, you can count on us for zealous defense in any Arizona felony or misdemeanor case, including domestic violence, juvenile offenses and probation violations. Every case is important, and you deserve quality representation from a lawyer with the skills, experience and dedication to provide you with a strong defense. Call Blumberg & Associates for help with any of the following:
Drug Crimes – Law enforcement agencies and prosecutors vigorously go after drug crimes and seek harsh penalties that make headlines. This approach means that innocent people are often swept up in the police department’s net, and individuals find themselves charged with much more serious crimes than they may be guilty of. Don’t fall victim to the government’s traps and pressure tactics that trick you into giving confessions or making incriminating statements. Let your first call be to Blumberg & Associates, and find out how we can help you in a confidential consultation.
Sex Crimes – Facing a trial for a sex offense means facing the harsh judgment of prosecutors and juries and a lifetime on the Arizona Sex Offender Registry, severely limiting your ability to live a peaceful and productive life. As a person accused of a crime, you are entitled to a presumption of innocence and to defend yourself against the charges; sex crimes are no different. At Blumberg & Associates, we offer help, not judgment.
Violent Crimes – The penalties for conviction of homicide, assault or other crimes of violence are severe in and of themselves, and they also typically count as strike offenses, leading to the possibility of life in prison if convicted. Bruce Blumberg has won five first degree murder trials and many violent crime trials, and we can help you avoid the most serious consequences of a conviction for a violent crime.
Federal Crimes – Facing charges in the federal system means facing a massive, well-funded federal agency and highly trained lawyers, with the possibility of lengthy mandatory federal prison sentences, incredibly steep fines and asset forfeiture on conviction. When the stakes are high, choose a lawyer who knows how to navigate the rules of procedure, evidence and sentencing in the federal system.
White Collar Crimes – White collar crimes often involve complex statutes requiring intricate and highly technical defenses. Phoenix attorney Bruce Blumberg has a Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree in Taxation, enabling him to better understand and deal with the complicated laws and regulations surrounding financial crimes.
What does it mean to be Board Certified?
The State Bar of Arizona recognizes less than four percent of the attorneys in the state as Certified Legal Specialists. To obtain a legal specialty in Criminal Law, you must demonstrate substantial involvement in criminal law over several years in practice, and you must have handled a number of hearings and criminal felony jury trials, including serious felony offenses. Board-Certified attorneys must also demonstrate honesty, professionalism and a high degree of competence substantially greater than what is expected of the general criminal law practitioner. Specialists must pass a written exam covering criminal law and procedure, rules of practice and evidence, and ethics in the profession. Before recommending an attorney to the Board for certification, the Criminal Law Advisory Commission also reviews references from at least five practicing attorneys or judges who have worked with the lawyer in criminal law matters. Certified Legal Specialists must continue their legal education and seek recertification every five years to maintain their Board-Certified status.
