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. ContactPhillips Law Group 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 atPhillips Law Group 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.

Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
