Phoenix Gang Crime Defense Attorneys

Arizona has tough laws that place serious consequences on "gang-related" crimes. Our state's laws are written so that people who are convicted of crimes face more serious consequences if it is determined that a gang was involved.

In fact, in felony convictions, the penalty will be increased by three years if gang involvement is found. It becomes much more difficult to have a suspended sentence, pardon or release from prison prior to the full completion of the time of the penalty.

Suzuki Law Offices has represented countless people who have been accused of gang crimes. We take these matters seriously and know how to achieve the best possible results for you and your family.

Criminal Syndicate Offenses (A.R.S. §13-2301)

Arizona law defines a criminal syndicate as a group of people or organizations that are involved in continual felony violations. Whether you are a participant in a criminal street gang or involved in promoting their illegal activities, you could face felony charges which entail serious penalties.

Some offenses associated with criminal syndicates:

  • Money laundering
  • Human trafficking and smuggling
  • Trafficking stolen goods and property
  • Drug offenses
  • Extortion
  • Fraud and racketeering
  • Kidnapping
  • Arson
  • Bribery

There are a broad range of offenses that can be associated with gang crimes. Make sure you work with a tough, experienced attorney who understands the nuances of each crime to help you minimize the penalties you face.

Aggressive Action Against the Gang Enforcement Bureau and Law Enforcement

In Arizona, a government organization called the Gang Enforcement Bureau operates GIITEM, or the Gang and Immigration Intelligence Team Enforcement Mission. This organization consists of law enforcement agencies from multiple districts who pool resources and intelligence regarding criminal matters involving gangs and illegal immigration.

During his time at the Maricopa County prosecutor's office, our founding attorney, Richard Suzuki, worked in the gang enforcement unit, handling violent crimes and crimes related to gang activity. He handled cases such as homicides, stabbing and robberies, so he understands how prosecutors view these cases. This experience helps us protect your freedom against law enforcement and this powerful government organization.
