Phoenix Criminal Defense Team

Phoenix Personal Injury Team

If you have been arrested, or are facing criminal charges, you need the representation of an aggressive experienced attorney. There are many lawyers in Maricopa County, but when it comes to marginalized, Black, Brown, and undocumented communities, there are few you can trust. YMLG offers a holistic and people centered approach to analyzing your legal matter. We have been incredibly effective in providing representation to non-citizens in criminal cases so that the end result of the criminal case will not result in deportation or other negative immigration consequences.

Migration is a Human Right

We firmly believes that human mobility via migration is a human right. We understand that we are located in one of the most anti-immigrant, racist states in the country and many of our cases are very difficult to win. However, we also believe that every human being has a right to travel across boundaries to find work and to support themselves and their families. We believe our communities are under attack for exercising this fundamental right to migration. Subsequently, our Law Firm is committed to fighting every case with this context in mind, and with the goal of fighting not just deportations, but the ideologies behind policies and processes that continue to oppress and hurt communities of color.


Our team of compassionate and experienced attorneys are here to help guide you in your time of need.
