Ms. Hallam is a fierce advocate for her clients. I have seen her go to battle while at the same time lend a hand to help her clients up from the lowest points in their lives. She truly cares about those she helps and is a lioness in the courtroom. I highly recommend her.

Q. i called police on boyfriend lied to them now boyfriend in custody with charges pending cant afford 7500 need lawyer
A: Call the detective working on the case, or the victims advocate office at the county attorneys office, and tell them that you were not telling the truth. Give the detective a new statement. And contact your boyfriends attorney. There are victims rights in Arizona, so you will have to waive your right to not speak to the defendants attorney. So tell the defense attorney you are waiving your rights and you would like to speak to him or her regarding your recantation. I hope that helps! Best of luck Josephine Pesaresi Hallam Hallam Law Group
Q. I've been charged with a few things by word of mouth and lies, a family member and cops are involved what do I do?
A: First of all, I’m sorry you’re going through this. The crimes you’re facing a very serious. The meth sales alone, have a punishment of five years prison minimum, 10 years prison presumptive, 15 years prison maximum. And that’s flat time. Any scales, baggies, ledgers, can be used as indicia and sales. The meth found on your person can also be a problem obviously. First piece of advice is always don’t allow a search of your car if asked, tell the police you want to remain silent and not speak to them. If indeed you did write a statement, you need to go to a lawyer and see if there’s anyway that statement can be thrown out as coerced or involuntary. Do not speak and Jail phones if you’re incarcerated because all the calls are monitored and tape recorded as evidence. If indeed you did write a statement, you need to go to a lawyer and see if there’s anyway that statement can be thrown out as coerced or in voluntary. Do not speak on jail phones if you’re incarcerated because all the calls are monitored and tape-recorded as evidence. Make an attorney appointment, many of us on Justia give free consultations, take advantage of the free consultations , and get some advice. In the meantime, don’t speak to anyone about your case, because they can be called to testify against you if you give them any information. Josephine Hallam Hallam Law Group
Q. Can I send character letters directly to the judge instead of through the court appointed lawyer?
A: First, I am sorry your attorney has not given you confidence. It is hard enough to face criminal charges, but not having an attorney who you feel is in your corner is unbearable. Second, you should always give anything you need the Court to see to your attorney first. It is not advisable to submit anything directly to the Judge without your attorney reviewing it first. It is important that your attorney see it to be sure all the contents are acceptable and also so your attorney can use the letter contents in their own sentencing memorandum and materials. So, my advice, it send the letters through your attorney, and ask for confirmation when they have been submitted to ease your mind. Best of luck. I hope that helps. Josephine Hallam
