About Our Firm

Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer in Phoenix, Arizona

The Law Office of Rachelle S. Ferraro is a small firm which enables us to provide individualized personal attention to our clients. When you retain the Law Office of Rachelle S. Ferraro, you receive Rachelle S. Ferraro, certified criminal law specialist, as your attorney.  You will not be passed off to an associate attorney.  Because we have lower overhead than some of the larger criminal defense firms, you receive aggressive personal representation at a more affordable fee.

Since I began the practice of law in 1998, I have always been on the defense side.  Out of necessity because public and sometimes judicial sentiment seem to be pro-state and pro-prosecution, I learned to think "outside the box" very early on in my career. That creativity has served me well in devising strategies, legal theories and even in negotiating creative resolutions to my clients' sometimes peculiar situations.

Having tried over 90 cases to juries, I have earned a reputation as a skilled litigant who has been victorious in several "unwinable" cases. Dissecting and working up thousands of cases, I am known as a thorough, detail oriented, hard working dedicated advocate. Board certified as a criminal law specialist by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization, I stand out in the top of my field.
