- Maricopa County to Invest $7 Million in High-Paying Jobs | Legal News | News Ticker
Not only does everyone in Arizona understand that the state’s economy is struggling, but people everywhere in the state are living it as well. One of the main reasons that so many people find themselves in financial turmoil is because the jobs market is still at levels where no one would expect the state to turn around as a whole anytime soon in an economic sense. Therefore, some entities are taking action, and one such step was announced yesterday by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. The county is going to invest $7 million in attracting businesses to the county that offer high-paying jobs to employees.
Specifically, this step will allow companies that want to put operations here to apply for job training and infrastructure funds as long as that company agrees to pay its workers at least 125 percent of the county’s median income, which currently sits at $31,000.00 per year. The funds will come from interest income that’s being generated by the county’s cash reserves in its general fund, and it’s hope that such an investment will prompt businesses of different types to move into the county and start hiring.
Arizona Economic Trends
The move comes on the heels of reports that Arizona bankruptcy filings are about to set a record in terms of number of cases filed in 2010 after the previous record was set just last year. In addition, marriage rates and birth rates are on the decline but the rate of poverty is on the rise. These statistics always spell trouble both in the short-term and the long-term, and most people agree that an economy cannot gain a strong foothold of stability until the jobs market bottoms out and begins to move in a positive direction.

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.
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!

As an attorney here at PLG, I’m lucky to be surrounded by seasoned attorneys and knowledgeable staff that share my enthusiasm for helping accident victims. The team here at PLG treats clients with respect and empathy while fighting hard to get the results they deserve.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
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.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
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!!
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
