Laura J. Killham, Esq.

51 Reviews

KILLHAM LAW OFFICE has the advantage of an experienced former trial Prosecutor. Clients have the benefit of a veteran trial Prosecutor with experience in Maricopa County Criminal Courts. I know the personnel and have interacted with them from both sides of the judicial system. I know how the Prosecution thinks and their strategies. I can anticipate their moves. Most defense attorneys do not have extensive Prosecutorial experience. This experience provides an outstanding advantage when defending your case, fighting for your rights and freedom. Use my experience to your advantage with your criminal case.

"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Laura for 14 years as a prosecutor and a defense attorney. I have tried many cases against her. Laura is both highly competent as a lawyer and very concerned about her clients’ well being."

"I went up against Ms. Killham as a prosecutor and found her to be a fair but strong adversary. When she left the prosecutor’s office, I was happy to refer cases to her that I couldn’t take on."
