Figure out a resolution to your financial crisis.





Your life can change in an instant. Or at least, it can feel that way.

Any drug related arrest can bring serious consequences. Whether you face charges related to personal possession or use, or are facing more serious charges of trafficking or intent to distribute, you are at risk of life-charge consequences. Most drug charges carry the risk of incarceration and costly monetary fines. Such charges can impact your ability to fund education through federal loans, obtain a favorable outcome in family law matters relating to custody or parenting time, and seek or maintain employment.

However, all is not lost. The choices you make immediately following an arrest for a drug crime can make all the difference. Don’t hesitate in seeking the advice of a criminal defense attorney. Following an arrest for any Arizona drug crime, an experienced attorney can review the facts of your case to determine your best possible defense and identify any procedural or factual flaws in your arrest. When facing drug-related charges, the information provided by an experienced lawyer is invaluable. Without it, you are risking your freedom and your livelihood.

My name is attorney Christopher Ariano and I can help.

As a founding partner and criminal defense attorney at Ariano & Associates, PLLC, I help criminal defendants across the state of Arizona defend against charges relating to drug crimes. With a strong legal background and offices across the state, I represent individuals arrested for drug charges in Arizona. While the below list is not inclusive, I offer compassionate and aggressive representation against the following charges:

  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
  • Possession or Use of Marijuana
  • Medical Marijuana Defense
  • Possession or Use of a Dangerous Drug
  • Possession or Transportation of Drug for Sale
  • Cultivation of Marijuana
  • Manufacture of a Dangerous Drug

Choosing a criminal defense attorney may seem like an overwhelming job. Will your attorney make your case a priority? Can you reach your attorney directly by phone or e-mail if a question arises? Does your attorney have the education and resources to ensure the best possible outcome for your case? If you ask my clients these questions, the answer is always a resounding yes.

“Chris was good, understanding and always was there when we had questions. A good guy. Thumbs up.”

As an attorney, my goal is to provide quality legal representation at an affordable price that is accessible to all individuals facing criminal charges in Arizona.
