Mental Health Defense Protecting Our Clients' Rights

Phoenix Mental Health Defense Lawyer

As everyone knows, one’s mental health plays a significant role in one’s behavior. Those suffering from mental health issues can be driven to actions that put others at risk; these actions may be done not out of malice or intent to commit harm in the present but due to trauma from past circumstances or individuals. 

Mental health issues pose a complex challenge for these individuals and for the criminal justice system that oversees the resolution of their cases. Mentally compromised defendants may be overlooked by a system ill-equipped to address mental health with the sensitivity and specificity it requires. This can lead to a cycle of misunderstanding, mistreatment, and missed opportunities for rehabilitation. 

At Ryan Garvey Attorneys, PLC, we understand the impact of mental health issues as they relate to the criminal justice system. Our attorney works to ensure that those who need a mental health defense when accused of a crime secure the legal considerations necessary when facing the consequences.
