Stephen R. Glazer

I have been defending clients since I opened my own firm in 2002. I only practice criminal law, and I dedicate a large portion of my practice solely to DUIs. Every DUI case is different. Although I can’t guarantee a particular outcome, I can tell you that I am a Certified Criminal Law Specialist. If there is a way out, I will find it. My team and I dedicate our careers to providing clients with the best possible outcome. We will be here for you or your loved one every step of the way. We pride ourselves on communication. We do not leave the office until every phone call and e-mail has been answered.

Simply put, DUI law is complicated. For that reason, we provide representation throughout every aspect of a client's case: court proceedings and filings; MVD hearings and driver license reinstatement; and compliance with court and MVD-imposed requirements. We understand how important this is to you. Please read what past clients have written about us on our review page.

Avvo Badge I am rated a perfect 10 by AVVO. AVVO's mission is to help people make the best decisions for their important legal needs. Finding the right lawyer often comes at a critical time in life. Most people have no idea how to go about searching for an attorney, and resources that offer answers to questions are overwhelming and difficult to understand. AVVO has made it easier by rating lawyers. The rating is calculated using a mathematical model that considers elements such as years of experience, board certification, education, disciplinary history, professional achievement, and industry recognition-all factors that are relevant to assessing a lawyer’s qualifications.

The American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys (AAPDA)

AAPDA Badge The American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys (AAPDA) has compiled information from DUI Defense Attorneys to determine exactly what skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies win the most DUI cases at trial and are also used to get DUI cases successfully resolved for the defense prior to trial. Members of the AAPDA have received advanced level training on these strategies and also have access to the resources and tools that are used to win and successfully resolve DUI cases, which are resources and tools that only a very small percentage of DUI attorneys have access to and utilize.

The American Society of Legal Advocates

ASLA Badge I am a proud member of the American Society of Legal Advocates (ASLA) as of January, 2014. ASLA awarded me as one of the Top 100 Criminal Defense Lawyers in the State of Arizona. This is an invitation-only legal organization comprised of the nation’s most skilled lawyers. This award recognizes his stellar legal credentials with proven commitment to community engagement, leadership, and the highest professional standards.

Top 100 Trial Lawyers

The National Trial Lawyers Badge In 2013, I was asked to become a member of The National Trial Lawyers, making me the only criminal defense attorney in Flagstaff that has the award. This elite honor is only awarded to the Top 100 Trial Lawyers from each state. Attorneys are invited only if they have superior qualifications, leadership skills, and trial results as a legal professional.

AZ Finest Lawyers

AZ Finest Lawyers Badge On July 8, 2011 I was named one of Arizona's Finest Lawyers. Based on a peer-reviewed nomination, the Executive Board selected me because of my demonstrated record of high achievement, excellent legal skills, and a well-earned reputation for integrity.

Jake Smets

Jake Smets

Jacob Smets, was born in Chandler, AZ to blue collar parents. Jake's most prominent quality is a hard work ethic, a principle he learned from his folks. Jake graduated early from Northern Arizona University with two Bachelor of Science degrees in American Political Studies and History with a minor in global studies. Both degrees were earned while playing on the college hockey team, the NAU Ice Jacks.

Upon graduating from NAU, Jake worked in sales and technology for six months before attending the University of South Dakota School of Law in Vermillion, SD. Throughout law school, Jake was active in numerous extracurricular activities. These included competing in two trial competition teams; actively worked as a board member of the Environmental Law Society and the Sustainability Committee at USD; donating his time to Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) services, representing children in dependency matters; built houses with Habitat for Humanity; completed both RD HURD-a Family Law Indigent Law Defense Practicum-, and Veteran's Legal Education Group legal clinic, as well as running the Veteran's Black Hills 14th Annual Marathon. Meanwhile, he was also able to hold down three part time jobs, a testament to his ability to prioritize and multitask as well.

Jake graduated from law school in May of 2018 and was eager for an opportunity to return to Flagstaff. Luckily, he found that opportunity with Glazer Hammond, PLLC, working as a criminal defense attorney.
