BIO Armando Nava founded The Nava Law Firm, PLLC and practices in the areas of criminal defense, DUI defense, and Federal litigation, where he is a fearless, aggressive and effective advocate. After working in a large firm and successfully defending hundreds of cases, Mr. Nava decided he wanted to create a firm with a more personal touch. He wanted to be able to treat each case like it was his only case without the hurdles of big law firm life. He believes everyone deserves the best defense possible. He cares deeply about his clients and does everything in his power to get them through what can be a harrowing experience.
Mr. Nava grew up in El Paso, TX, where his father’s job as a police officer led to a passion for the criminal justice system. He knew at a very young age he wanted to help those who needed it most. Mr. Nava received his undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University. He then moved to Arizona in 2007 to attend the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University where he graduated cum laude. He was admitted to the Arizona State Bar and the United States District Court of Arizona in 2010.
His legal education did not stop at Law School. He has attended hundreds of hours of specialized training in identifying weaknesses in the Prosecution's case. He has received extensive training in forensic science and works with some of the best forensic experts in Arizona. He recently taught a Continuing Legal Education Seminar on the subject of DUI Defense. Coupled with his passion for defending individuals from government overreach, Mr. Nava's acquired knowledge and natural abilities have resulted in a high number of dismissals and acquittals for his clients.
In his tenure, he has represented clients in courts all over Arizona. He handles every type of criminal case, and he regularly appears in Justice Court, City Court, Superior Court, and Federal Court.
