At Ashley D. Adams, PLC, we have a well-established track record of success that can make a difference, whether in defending charges of white collar crime, health care fraud, financial fraud, general fraud charges, other criminal or civil matters, or representing our clients during a government investigation.



We focus on defending clients charged with white collar criminal offenses at the federal and state level. Whether you have already been charged, are being investigated, or are facing regulatory challenges, we have the experience and resources to represent and advise you. There is a reason that we consistently get referrals from former clients: we offer diplomatic but aggressive legal representation in the most complex cases. Whether you are being investigated by the FBI, the SEC, local police or are struggling with issues related to the Arizona Corporation Commission, we are prepared to help you.  


The term “white collar crime” typically refers to business-related financial crimes. Many of these crimes violate federal law and are often charged in federal court by the United States Attorney’s Office or by the Arizona Attorney General’s office in state court. These cases are often complex and can involve numerous complicated legal, financial and factual issues. Retaining an experienced attorney is absolutely crucial when the force of the federal or state government is allied against you. With state regulators and law enforcement officials, you may find that they are even more tenacious than the feds. Local regulators and investigators may be particularly concerned about appearing "tough on crime." This often leads to violations of the accused's rights.

Our seasoned criminal defense attorney possess the skills and knowledge necessary to provide you with a winning defense. Ashley Adams is among Arizona's most respected defense lawyers and is on your side no matter your legal challenges.  Regardless of the type of white collar crime charged, our law firm focuses on the best interests of our clients. We can be aggressive when necessary but we know that insightful and creative diplomacy is often just as effective. Whatever the situation, we are prepared to adapt accordingly no matter the charges against you. 

From stock brokers accused of "pump and dump schemes" to business owners implicated for money laundering, we are prepared to help you. Some of the types of cases we have handled include: 

Fraud: Accounting, medicare, mortgage and other types of fraud
Administrative Disciplinary Matters involving the ACC, FBI, FTC, IRS, SEC, or other similar body 
Complex Commercial Litigation
• False Claims Act / Qui Tam Matters
• Foreclosure Scams
• Fraudulent Appraisals
The above represent only a very small sample of the types of cases we handle. You may be facing challenges related to Sarbannes-Oxley or RICO charges. We are prepared. Because we have been advising and representing clients in these complex areas of the law for so many years, we know you may be experiencing overwhelming anxiety in the face of the charges alleged against you. We understand and we know how to protect your rights. 


Our law firm provides comprehensive legal services centered on the needs of residents of Arizona.

With 20 years of legal experience and education, Ashley Adams has a solid reputation for legal excellence and expertise in Arizona.

I was facing the overwhelming wrath of the federal government. The only one who stood before me to shield me was Ashley Adams. I was not only impressed with her knowledge of the law but also how she understood perfectly the complicated nuances of my case. God bless you Ashley -you are not only an outstanding lawyer but an excellent human being as well.
