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.

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.
