Welcome to the Law Offices of Michael A. Burkhart.  I have been a criminal defense attorney for over 15 years.  I have a proven track record of success and know what it takes to effectively represent a criminal defendant.  I am your attorney.

I represent clients accused of a crime or a DUI throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area.  I represent clients charged with felonies in the Maricopa County Superior Court and the Pinal County Superior Court.  I have handled hundreds, if not thousands, of DUI cases and all misdemeanor charges in the Chandler, Tempe, Mesa, Gilbert, Scottsdale, and Phoenix  Municipal Courts as well as all of the Justice Courts.

I knew what I wanted to do when I went to college.   I won awards in Criminal Justice Administration at the University of Arizona.  I then went to Vanderbilt university Law School so that we I returned home I had the best education I could get.  When you are up against the government you need a smart attorney.

Arizona's DUI laws are the toughest in the country, especially on first-time offenders.

Michael Burkhart began to concentrate on DUI defense in 2000 when it became apparent that the State was going after regular people who are not criminals. Since then he has attended countless seminars to stay up to date on the ever-changing science used by the State to prosecute people accused of DUI. You need an attorney familiar with the science of DUI defense.

Some attorneys don't think a DUI can be beat. I know they can! I have had many juries return not-guilty verdicts once the State's evidence is exposed by a seasoned and experienced trial attorney. After 15 years there are times that the State has dismissed the case just because I was ready to go to trial and the prosecutor new they would lose.  Every case is different and results vary, but without an experienced attorney a person is at the mercy of the State.

Do not go up against the State by yourself.  Call my office now and protect your rights.

I provide aggressive representation and pride ourselves on our commitment to the client. I offer free initial consultation for anyone seeking a criminal lawyer.
