Stewart Salwin is a top-rated criminal defense attorney who is a former prosecutor and Harvard Law School graduate. He draws on his years of criminal law experience as both a prosecutor and defense attorney to provide his clients with the best representation available.
We know from experience how cops and prosecutors put together criminal cases. We used to do the exact same thing. We know the playbook and their tricks. Now we can use our insider knowledge to your benefit in fighting your criminal charges!
An Aggressive, Proactive Approach to Your Defense
Some Arizona defense attorneys are happy to take a wait-and-see approach in representing their clients. If you go with a public defender, your attorney will likely never look at your case before your first court date.
We believe there is no time to waste. Important investigations can take place prior to your court date, or even before criminal charges are filed. Discussions with the prosecutor can also begin so that we can start negotiating your case. By starting our defense immediately, we can start to gather evidence and witnesses in your favor and get a jump start towards defeating your charges.
Close Personal Contact with Your Defense Attorney
Facing criminal charges can be alarming. Nothing adds to this stress more than being unable to reach your own attorney.
At Salwin Law Group, we provide easy access to your lawyer. We are here to provide not only legal representation, but also moral and emotional support during this very stressful time in your life. To achieve this, every client receives Stewart Salwin's personal cell phone number, and every client phone call, email, and text will be returned as soon as possible.
Close client interaction is important for your defense. Knowing your side of the story and having a good relationship with you is key to a good attorney-client relationship and strong defense.
When you hire us, Stewart Salwin is your personal attorney. You won't be passed off to somebody else who you never met, or worse, get a new attorney every time you go to court.
We've worked with numerous clients on a wide variety of criminal defense cases, and can apply my previous experience to your unique situation. You can rely on us to set realistic expectations for each case and remain honest with you throughout the legal process.

Why You Need a Criminal Defense Attorney
Many people who are accused of committing a crime can instantly feel guilty, and forget that they have legal rights that should be protected. The criminal justice system can be complicated for the average person to navigate – you need the experienced of someone who has helped others in the same situation before, and has demonstrated success in court.
At Salwin Law Group, I believe that all individuals are innocent until proven guilty, and I’d give you the same advice I’d give to a friend or family member. You shouldn’t have to add to your stress by trying to research the specifics of your case by yourself. I, as your lawyer, can do all the preparation and litigation on your behalf. You can trust me to represent your best interests and know my way around a courtroom.
