White Collar Crimes

Experienced Representation When Everything Is On The Line

White collar crime is a broad classification used to describe charges of theft, misrepresentation and corruption, often involving financial transactions and business operations. These cases are often a top priority for investigators and prosecutors, making it critical that those accused of wrongdoing have experienced counsel protecting their rights.

What is White Collar Crime?

The term white collar crime comprises a wide array of criminal acts that are committed in a business or professional setting for financial gain.  Those accused of white collar crimes face not only the pressures of criminal prosecution, but also negative publicity and catastrophic damage to their finances.  Penalties for white collar crimes range from probation, fines and criminal forfeiture, to lengthy prison sentences.  Our criminal defense attorneys understand the severity of the consequences for their clients and will work diligently to obtain the most favorable outcome possible including getting charges dismissed, negotiating a plea bargain or obtaining a not guilty verdict.

If you are under suspicion or investigation for white collar crime charges, our criminal defense firm can promptly inform you on how to respond.  Under no circumstances should you talk to anyone without an attorney! Your silence cannot be used against you. However, statements made to the police investigators without the presence of an experienced attorney by your side can seriously jeopardize your defense options. 

Our criminal defense attorneys represent clients in state, local and federal jurisdictions and defend clients against a wide range of white collar criminal charges such as:

  • Securities fraud
  • Tax fraud
  • Mail and wire fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Real estate fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Forgery
  • Embezzlement
  • Conspiracy
  • Money laundering
  • Identity theft
  • Credit card fraud
  • Medicare, Medicaid and healthcare fraud

Aggressive representation by a qualified criminal defense lawyer can also reduce or eliminate potential civil consequences of criminal prosecution such as claims for restitution, damages and forfeiture.
