We're Here to Help with your DUI or Misdemeanors
Julie spent the first three years of her legal career as a prosecutor, first for the La Paz County Attorney’s Office and then for the City of Flagstaff. While with the City of Flagstaff Julie’s caseload consisted primarily DUI cases, allowing her to hone her investigation, negotiation and DUI trial skills as she litigated both bench and jury DUI trials.
Since then Julie’s successfully defended many clients in all sorts of DUI and misdemeanor criminal matters. In fact, Julie takes pride in defending her clients as she clearly understands defending criminal clients often involves the assertion and defense of many important and vital constitutional rights.
“If we don’t know our rights and we don’t assert them … Then do we really have rights at all?” Arizona Lawyer Julie LaBenz
Julie approaches her cases with a reasonable, rights-based and vigorous defense of her clients, who generally consist of first time offenders with no prior experience with the criminal justice system that find themselves facing a criminal charge, that’s usually somehow related to alcohol.
It’s no surprise that nobody makes the best decisions when they’ve been drinking. Often, the poor decisions made while under the influence cause people to come into contact with law enforcement and get charged with a crime.
Others, simply happen to have made a poor decision and then find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Facing a criminal charge for the first time is usually overwhelming, frightening and a situation full of uncertainty and confusion.
An unfamiliar legal process unfolds around the suspect and it’s important to not only understand your rights, but to also effectively assert them.
Currently, Julie defends clients against criminal charges in the Sedona Municipal Court located at 102 Roadrunner, Sedona, Arizona 86336.
