- The Nature of Fighting Drug Charges in Arizona
The War on Drugs officially began in 1973 under orders from President Nixon, and since that time more than $2.5 trillion has been spent in an effort to enforce the ever-expanding list of drug laws. Part of this war included the creation of the Drug Enforcement Agency, or DEA, and experts would argue that the results have been mixed.
Arizona Drug Arrests
What is real, though, is that Arizona has followed the lead of the federal government and has continued to impose tougher drug laws with stiffer punishments in reaction to the public outcry to deal with this issue. Given that Arizona is a border state, the pressure is only ramped up on officials whose continuance in elected office at least partly depends on their willingness and ability to continue the War on Drugs on a state level.
As such, the police will work relentlessly to investigate and ultimately arrest a suspect believed to be involved in the drug trade, and that includes executing searches, turning witnesses in their favor and compiling huge piles of evidence to be sent to the District Attorneys office in an effort to obtain an indictment from a grand jury.
When an indictment is issued, the prosecutor will sometimes charge the defendant with the most serious crime allowed in an effort to open the negotiation process towards a plea bargain. It is for all of these reasons and more that if you face drug charges in Arizona, you need the help of a skilled and experienced Phoenix criminal defense attorney.

A defense attorney will be able to analyze the evidence thats available, including witness statements, decide how and if its advisable to fight for your innocence or to pursue a plea bargain thats fair and generally help you through the process by making sure that none of your rights as guaranteed by the Constitution go unprotected or unasserted.

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.
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!
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
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.
