About Our Firm

Experienced, Aggressive & Caring Representation

Many of the attorneys at MayesTelles PLLC are former prosecutors. How does this benefit you? It means our attorneys know how the other side thinks. We have the ability to see cases from every angle, and anticipate the moves of the opposing side. We are familiar with prosecutor tactics and know how to counteract them with strong defense methods.

Both of our principal attorneys, J. Blake Mayes and David Telles, are listed in "The Top 100 Trial Lawyers" by The National Trial Lawyers. This distinguished legal recognition identifies the top 100 trial lawyers by state. Out of the millions of attorneys in the United States, being in this list is a singular honor. Attorney J. Blake Mayes has received the highest honor on Martindale-Hubbell® of AV Preeminent™. This peer review rating indicates that Mr. Mayes has achieved the highest ratings in a number of categories, such as integrity, ethics, professionalism, and record of accomplishment. Martindale-Hubbell® is also the oldest legal rating service in the nation.

The Arizona Business Magazine has also featured J. Blake Mayes in the list of Top Lawyers. The magazine arrives at the list of top lawyers after sending out a survey to law firms in the region. The firms were asked to vote on their top attorneys in each category.

The Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers is a distinction from Martindale-Hubbell®. According to Martindale, this award distinguishes the leading law firms and most prestigious partners at law firms in each region. The Bar Register award has been given for more than 90 years and honors lawyers that are truly preeminent in their field. Attorney J. Blake Mayes has been honored with this award.

Hiring an attorney to handle your defense sounds expensive, which is why many people accused of crimes opt for state appointed counsel – public defenders. These public defenders have far too big a caseload to be able to focus or care about the outcome of your case. Hiring a private criminal attorney in Phoenix does not have to be expensive.
