Arizona White Collar Crimes Charges
As it stands currently, a suspect could be charged on either the Arizona or the federal level for the following crimes:
- Tax evasion
- Money laundering
- Identity theft
Of course, there are others, but historically, white collar crimes have always been an element of society. As long as there have been banks and financial transactions, there have been problems with crime, and in recent years with the advent of the Internet, white collar crimes have only risen in prevalence.
As a result, the public is clamoring for tougher enforcement of new laws and for stiffer penalties for convictions of these sorts of crimes that are now easier to commit than ever before. When this process of public outrage takes place, the reaction regularly is noted tangibly in the state and federal legislatures and ultimately becomes part of the criminal enforcement arms of the government.
Given this reality, you need to make sure that you secure the help of an experienced white collar crimes attorney in Arizona if you face these charges. ContactArentz Law Group PLLC today to get the process of building your defense started.
Arizona White Collar Crimes Investigation
Generally speaking, if someone is being investigated for white collar crimes in Arizona, he or she will be dealing with a much different type of government official than someone who is charged with a violent or a drug crime. Since the essence of these crimes involve paperwork, computer files and the tracking of transactions, different arms of law enforcement will soon be involved if youre suspected of white collar crimes.
Examples of these arms of government include the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and perhaps the FBI on the federal level and bank investigators, financial regulators and tax authorities within the Arizona government. These government officials are experienced and skilled at their craft and will not leave any detail uncovered when investigating a crime of this nature.
Fortunately, like with any other crime, you have rights guaranteed by the Constitution, and you should remember to enforce them if you find yourself embroiled in this situation. There are two rights to remember above all others the right to remain silent and the right to have an attorney present. If you are being investigated and youre asked to answer questions, respectfully invoke these rights and contact the white collar crimes attorneys atArentz Law Group PLLC as soon as possible to schedule an initial consultation.
White Collar Crimes Prosecution Strategy
Depending on whether or not the white collar crimes charges you face are on the state or the federal level, you will likely face a team of prosecutors whose sole job is to secure convictions for investigations that result in the compiling of enough evidence to name a prime suspect. This process is meticulous, grueling and many times extremely confusing given the complexity of the statutes involved.
Therefore, these prosecutors will likely present what seems like a mountain of documented evidence and witness statements to a grand jury in an effort to secure an indictment. If the indictment is granted, the strategic aspect of the prosecutorial process tends to begin. Many times, prosecutors may be willing to prosecute you for the crimes with which youre charged, but they may also be looking to secure evidence against someone else if the nature of the crime charged involved other parties and/or some sort of conspiracy.
You should not be surprised if you are charged with crimes that represent the high end of the discretionary spectrum in terms of the potential penalties, as this is often done to prompt the defendant to work towards a plea bargain in order to avoid exposure to those harsh penalties. This is a common tactic and one that should be met with an experienced white collar crimes attorney who understands the intricacies of this process.

My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .

Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
