Joseph N. Roth
Joe Roth’s practice is a blend of civil litigation, criminal defense, including government and internal investigations, and appeals. He has experience defending clients against antitrust claims, was an integral part of the team that represented a public company under investigation by the SEC, and has litigated numerous emergency relief matters in state and federal trial and appellate courts. Joe’s appellate work is varied: he helped secure the reversal of a former public safety officer’s conviction for aggravated assault, he co-authored a petition for writ of certiorari in the United States Supreme Court, and he argued before the Arizona Court of Appeals about the scope of Arizona’s mechanics lien statute, resulting in a favorable published opinion.
Joe also devotes his time to pro bono work. He represented a client charged under Arizona’s untested assisted-suicide statute, and on behalf of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers he recently filed an amicus brief in the Fifth Circuit concerning the application of the Confrontation Clause in one of the largest-ever prosecutions for material support of terrorism.
