“Your freedom is my concern and I will do everything under the law to protect it”

-Thomas W. Dean


Welcome to the website for cannabis defense attorney Thomas W. Dean.  If you are charged in Arizona with crime involving marijuana, interested in participating in the legal cannabis industry, or are looking for information on marijuana reform in Arizona, then you have definitely come to the right place.  Mr. Dean’s practice is devoted to the representation of two groups in the cannabis community whose interests often overlap.

First of all, Tom is all about fighting for the rights of persons accused of violating Arizona’s heinous marijuana laws.  Secondly, Tom provides guidance and representation to entrepreneurs in the cannabis industry to ensure that they do not run afoul of the many pitfalls and ambiguities in the law. Better to see Tom on the front end and avoid getting busted in the first place. Either way, Tom is here to help you. Please take a few minutes to check out the wealth of resources offered on this website.


Tom Dean has been a criminal defense lawyer since 1993 and has been winning marijuana cases in Arizona for over 20 years. Tom has represented persons charged with every kind of marijuana offense, including cultivation, transportation, sales, extraction, DUI, and simple possession.
