Protect Your Rights by Knowing Your Rights

Daniel J. DeRienzo

Facing a criminal conviction causes fear for many people, and many people do not know what rights they have let alone how to protect them. At the Law Office of Daniel J. DeRienzo, our experienced attorney and compassionate staff fight to protect our clients’ rights.

Attorney Daniel DeRienzo has more than 25 years of experience protecting the rights of his clients. He has served as the Chief Public Defender for Yavapai County and has vigorously defended clients at his law firm. He handles felonies and misdemeanors involving:

  • Homicide
  • Drugs
  • Assault
  • Domestic violence

Without knowing your rights, you cannot protect them. Even if you think you do not need an attorney, meeting with our attorney can help ensure that you have the knowledge to defend yourself. Call our Arizona law firm to schedule a consultation in which we can discuss your case. You will meet directly with Mr. DeRienzo. He will educate you about the issues involved in your case. If you decide to have a public defender represent you, you will know what types of questions to ask and what to expect.

At the Law Office of Daniel J. DeRienzo, we provide aggressive representation to each of our clients. Prosecutors often overcharge. We thoroughly investigate as soon as possible so that we know of any weaknesses in the case against our clients. We understand that the penalties our clients face are harsh, and we ensure that our clients trust that they have a dedicated, experienced and compassionate advocate fighting for them.

Sex Crimes Defense

Allegations of sex crimes are very serious, and penalties for a conviction can include prison time, fines and registration as a sex offender. Many people get into trouble with Internet sex crimes, or after having sex with someone who lied about his or her age. Sometimes accused victims embellish their stories or their stories are twisted when reported by others. If you have been accused of a sex crime, Mr. DeRienzo is an aggressive and skilled trial lawyer who can help.
