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.

Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman.
