Real life criminal law is NOT like television.  Cases are not resolved in one hour, and the solutions are normally not simple.  Because of the stress and fear caused by the investigation or arrest, you may feel the need to hire the first attorney you speak with.  Hiring counsel can be the most important decision you make.  With a few simple questions, you will know if the attorney you are consulting can really help you. 

About Howard Snader

Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, I believe I have a unique insight of the community, people, and politics of the region.  After graduating from a local high school, I earned a B.S. in Psychology from Arizona State University in 1984.  I immediately entered Northwestern School of Law of Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon.  I earned my law degree in 1987 and began working as a law clerk/bailiff for the Honorable William T. Moroney of the Maricopa County Superior Court.  Upon leaving Judge Moroney, I clerked for a local insurance defense firm for approximately one year before becoming a prosecutor for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.    As a Deputy County Attorney, I prosecuted hundreds of felony and misdemeanor cases. Most importantly, I learned how the criminal justice system operates from the inside.

A certified specialist in criminal law by the State Bar of Arizona Board of Legal Specialization since 1995, Mr. Snader has the experience to get results. Working throughout Arizona with his principal practice in the Phoenix, Scottsdale metro area, he began his practice of law in 1990.

As an expert in criminal defense, he has defended hundreds of cases involving DUI and other alcohol related driving offenses and drug offenses, Mr. Snader is also an expert in defending cases involving aggravated assault, domestic violence, gun related crimes, sex crimes, child pornography, internet pornography and fraud. He will take your case seriously. And, as a sole practitioner, he will handle it personally.

Mr. Snader received his J.D. the Northwestern School of Law of Lewis and Clark College in 1987 having previously earned a B.S. in Psychology in 1984 from Arizona State University. He is a member in good standing of the State Bar of Arizona, the Maricopa County Bar Association and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Immediately after graduating from law school, Mr. Snader began working as a law clerk and bailiff for the Honorable William T. Moroney of the Maricopa County Superior Court. He later clerked for an insurance defense firm for approximately one year before becoming a prosecutor for the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, prosecuting hundreds of felony and misdemeanor cases.

Mr. Snader became a board certified specialist in criminal law in 1995. He was recertified in 2000. His trial skills are formidable. He has successfully defended several complicated cases lasting months in trial. While an early dismissal is certainly desirable, he will not hesitate to go to trial to get the best results for his clients.

A seasoned criminal law specialist, Mr. Snader knows the system inside and out. He is a former prosecutor, has taught criminal law in several paralegal schools and is a frequent lecturer to law enforcement agencies and other attorneys. He knows the system and he knows the players. He will use his formidable knowledge and experience to fight for you.

Board Certification in Criminal Law

Arizona's Board of Legal Specialization operates under the authority of the State Bar of Arizona. The board awards a specialist certification upon a showing of the attorney's litigation experience, training, recommendations from other attorneys, a written examination, and lengthy background check.

At a minimum, in order to receive specialist certification, an attorney must be licensed to practice law for at least five years with four years of practice in the specialty field (Mr. Snader has over 15 years of experience); have devoted at least the equivalent of 50 percent of a full-time law practice to the specialty field (Mr. Snader's practice is limited to 100% criminal defense); handle a wide variety of cases in the field and a specific number of cases in the specialty field; demonstrate integrity, professionalism and a high degree of competence in the specialty field; have the approval of attorneys, judges and or other professional colleagues in the specialty field and pass a written examination. Specialists must apply for re-certification every five years.

Howard Snader has been a certified specialist in criminal law since 1995.

Howard Snader was recertified as a specialist in criminal law in 2000.
