Are You Facing Criminal Charges in the West Valley?

Being charged with a crime can result in significant penalties as well as a criminal record. Depending on the nature of the crime, the consequences can include incarceration, fines/fees, community work service, probation, treatment classes and other penalties. It is critical to obtain legal counsel before making any decisions in your case to ensure you understand the impact and potential long term ramifications a criminal conviction may have on your future. The Law Offices of Trent R. Buckallew, PC is experienced in both criminal and DUI litigation with a proven track record in successfully resolving countless cases over the years.

The Firm has a reputation for zealously representing each and every client in court with an eye towards resolving each case under the most favorable terms possible.

Mr. Buckallew has extensive experience as a criminal defense attorney, having handled criminal cases at all stages of the criminal process, from pre-charge investigations to complex felony jury trials, throughout the State of Arizona.

He also holds a Master's of Forensic Science (M.F.S.) degree and is an Associate Member of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.

Client Reviews
We hired Trent Buckallew to represent our son following a second MIP ticket he received while in college. Mr. Buckallew kept us informed throughout all proceedings and helped us receive the satisfactory outcome of dropped charges in exchange for taking an alcohol awareness class. He was personable, knowledgeable and treated our small case with care and compassion. We would highly recommend him to anyone in need of representation. SR

I appreciate everything you were able to accomplish for my father and will certainly be referring Mr. Buckallew to anyone I know who may be in need of an excellent criminal defense attorney. CM
Trent handled cases for me on two different occasions involving tickets for seat belt violations in commercial vehicles. Very happy with results. All charges dismissed. One case in Flagstaff and one case in Gilbert Court. KF
