About Law Offices of Brandon White, P.C.
Criminal Defense Cases We Handle in the Greater Gilbert, AZ Metro Area
We leave it up to our clients to decide whether we're the best Phoenix criminal defense team, and we are confident because our track record speaks for itself. Here are just a few of the different types of matters we have helped our clients with:
DUI means driving under the influence of intoxicants- typically alcohol. Although DUI is usually a misdemeanor, under certain circumstances, Arizona can charge you with felony DUI.
A car can get you into trouble in a multitude of ways. Vehicular crimes range from misdemeanor offenses such as endangerment of injury to felonious criminal charges such as negligent homicide.
Criminal Traffic Ticket
An individual traffic ticket is no big deal, but a series of them, especially misdemeanor traffic charges, can put your driver’s license in jeopardy. Losing your license could lead to driving on a suspended license and further trouble.
Arizona treats violent crimes very seriously. Violent crimes include attempted murder, assault, kidnapping, domestic violence, and similar offenses.
White Collar Crimes
White-collar crimes are non-violent crimes typically committed for financial motivations. Many white-collar crimes are computer crimes and or involve fraud charges.
The penalties for theft vary greatly according to the financial value of the stolen items. In some cases, quibbling over the value of an item can make the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony.
Arizona can charge you with a property crime for anything from spraying graffiti onto a wall to burning down your own home for the insurance proceeds.
Conspiring to commit a crime can result in severe penalties, up to and including life in prison. It is easier to commit this offense than you might think.
Perjury is lying under oath. Under certain circumstances, it can result in years in prison. You don’t have to be in court to commit perjury.
Drug crimes range from simple possession of a small amount of a controlled substance for personal use to operating a meth lab in your basement. Penalties range from moderate to severe.
You can be convicted of a probation violation for activities as simple as associating with certain people, which would be perfectly legal if you weren’t on probation. The standard of proof is also lower.
Arizona adjudicates juvenile crimes using a completely different system than it does for adult crimes. This criminal law system is not always lenient.
Under Arizona criminal law, you can turn a relatively minor offense into a very serious offense by using a gun to commit it.
You commit the crime of solicitation when you try to get someone else to commit a crime. Penalties can be serious under Arizona criminal law.
Failure to Appear
Failure to appear in court for one charge can get you charged with a second offense. In some cases, the penalty for failure to appear is harsher than the penalty for the original offense.
Offenses and Penalties We Work with in Arizona
Arizona maintains three classifications for its offenses — felonies, misdemeanors, and civil offenses or infractions.
Felonies are the most serious type of criminal offense. Arizona subdivides felonies into six different classes based on severity. Arizona law authorizes capital punishment.
Misdemeanors are lesser crimes such as petty theft and first-offense DUI. Arizona maintains three classifications for misdemeanors based on severity.
In Arizona, civil offenses are offenses that fall short of criminal offenses but still carry penalties. Most of these are traffic offenses such as speeding or running a stoplight. Many of these civil traffic violations are moving violations and thus may be eligible to be dismissed through defensive driving school.
We Consistently Take Cases to Trial and Win
Traffic Ticket | Clients Testimonials
"So my situation was very serious. The day of the incident I had been diagnosed with the flu the day before and I was running a fever and wasn't feeling very well. And unfortunately I'd made a poor decision. I was accused of a DUI, but it got knocked down to reckless driving. When I first found out what I was accused of I was very scared.

I’m innocent! Do i still need a criminal defense lawyer?
Yes, you absolutely need legal representation, even if you are innocent. Although, our system does presume you are innocent until proven guilty. The fact is in reality, the criminal justice system has many ways of trapping innocent people into a conviction or intimidating them into making unwise plea bargains.
Can the police conduct a search without a warrant?
Yes, they can, under certain circumstances. The general rule is that they need a warrant, but there are many exceptions. The police can search you in the incident of a lawful arrest, for example. Our experienced legal team are trained to spot these issues and whether a valid exception exists.
What should I do if I am accused of a crime?
Get a Phoenix criminal defense attorney immediately. Invoke your right to remain silent and respectfully tell the police that you will not answer any questions without your criminal lawyer present, even if the police have not yet arrested you, this is your Constitutional Right not to answer questions. Finally, Stay off social media!
The police didn’t read my miranda rights — will my case be dismissed?
If you were not advised of your Miranda rights at the time of your arrest and were then questioned about the potential crime, then your Phoenix criminal lawyer may make a case to get some of those statements or “evidence” thrown out. Of course, each situation is different, so we urge you to seek legal counsel right away.
