Unscrupulous Law Enforcement Officer

A cop in Maricopa County, Arizona pretended to be a lawyer to try to make an unlawful arrest

Unscrupulous law enforcement officer unethically pretends to be an attorney at The Attorneys For Freedom Law Firm. Maricopa County sheriff’s deputy, Jeff Miller, lied about being an attorney to try to lure a woman to be arrested.

A law enforcement officer unethically pretended to be an attorney employed by OUR law firm. Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office deputy Jeff Miller pretended to be a lawyer at our firm on a phone call with our client’s mother.

Miller pretended to be a lawyer representing the Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm to coerce a woman into coming into the law office for an interview regarding a legal matter involving her underage son. Miller, who described himself as “Attorney Brown”, called the woman’s home asking her to come to the law firm’s office and planned to arrest her on account of an outstanding warrant for an unrelated incident. Miller’s plan ultimately backfired when the woman felt that there was something suspicious about the call, and called back to the Attorney for Freedom’s office. The law firm then called the number back and found out it was the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

“I haven’t ever seen anything close to this,” Andy Marcantel, a partner with Attorneys for Freedom told ABC-15 Arizona. “My partners at the law firm who have been practicing for almost three decades have not seen anything like this. My ethics counsel, who was ethics counsel for the state of Arizona State Bar with decades of experience has never seen anything like this. This is crazy, totally outrageous.”

The State Bar of Arizona released the following statement regarding Miller’s actions:

No person may practice law in the State of Arizona or represent in any way that he or she may practice law in the State of Arizona unless that person is an active member of the state bar or is otherwise authorized to do so by the Rules of the Supreme Court of Arizona.

Marcantel filed a complaint with the MSCO months ago regarding Miller’s egregious act of false identity but was told that the department’s investigators are “too busy” to attend to the matter, as the department is backlogged with over 2,000 misconduct cases that require investigation.

Hopefully, there will be consequences for this unscrupulous officer.

I hired Attorneys For Freedom in 2020 for a very serious matter involving my significant other. I... spent a couple of hours calling around looking for attorneys and the ONLY attorney willing to talk to me on behalf of my significant other was Andy Marcantel. It was end of day and he took the time, to speak to me and to myself, my significant other and his family, the next day as well.I knew immediately, I wanted to hire Andy for this serious matter. My significant other was facing serious time and we were both terrified. I trusted Andy and his team to get the absolute, best, possible outcome. From the very beginning, Andy was nothing short of truthful, communicative, professional, informative, kind and hilarious.I would email Andy late at night with concerns or questions and he would communicate back immediately just to let me know he was scheduling us a meeting the next day to go over everything. For almost 2 years, Andy and his team worked diligently on this case and about 3 weeks ago, it went to court for the last time and my significant other received the BEST outcome possible. Considering what he was facing, I will never be able to thank Andy properly for his work but what I can do, is let EVERYONE know, if you’re in need of a law firm, I HIGHLY recommend Attorneys For Freedom. You will not be disappointed.There is so much integrity, kindness and care in that office.Attorneys For Freedom holds true to their mission statement and their values.Andy, I cannot thank you enough for everything and the time and effort you took to ensure we understood every single part of the case and the justice system. I’m eternally grateful to you.read more

I had my doubts at the beginning, Andy, is one of the best guys I have known. He answers every... question I ask, he is there from start to finish. He has a client now for the rest of my life, if anything were to happen. I cannot be more happier with the way these guys run their businessread more
