Criminal Defense & Civil Litigation Attorney in Phoenix, AZ
Criminal Defense & Civil Litigation Attorney | Arizona
Jack Litwak obtained his B.A. from SUNY at Buffalo and his J.D. from Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. Throughout law school Jack focused on developing his litigation and trial skills. Jack practiced as a certified limited practice attorney with the Maricopa County Public Defender’s Office, Maricopa County Legal Defender’s Office, and the City of Phoenix Public Defender’s Office where he gained valuable courtroom and trial experience. He also spent three years clerking at civil litigation law firms in Phoenix. Jack began his legal career litigating matters involving allegations of personal injury and wrongful death, premises liability, construction defect, product liability, and general tort defense. Jack then spent several years with the Maricopa County Public Defender’s office where he handled hundreds of felony and misdemeanor cases ranging from simple assault and drug possession, drug trafficking, white collar, dangerous crimes, all the way up through murder. Jack’s passion for trial work and litigating constitutional violations, coupled with his dedication to his clients, resulted in dozens of dismissals and numerous not guilty verdicts.
Throughout his experiences Jack recognized not only his passion for litigation but also for fighting for the underdog—those who often have no one else to support them when their liberty or wellbeing are at stake. Jack believes there are two sides to every story and that everyone is entitled to have their story told and their constitutional rights protected regardless of race, gender, or class. Jack leaves no stone unturned, as he explores and investigates every possible issue in a case. Jack firmly believes that people need an attorney who truly cares about their clients, who would represent them the same way he would want to be represented, and who will fight as hard as they can to level the playing field at trial and to win. No matter the situation, everyone is entitled to the best representation possible.
In his spare time Jack volunteers as an assistant coach for the Arizona State Sun Devil Mock Trial team where he helps train future lawyers.
