Defense Of Fraud And White-Collar Crimes

Fraud and white-collar crimes traditionally refer to unscrupulous business practices or crooked politicians. It now also includes a wide range of modern cybercrimes, identity theft or other charges. While the victim is rarely physically injured, these charges are taken very seriously and handled in federal court. It is common for charges to include large fines as well as jail time in a federal penitentiary. Moreover, a conviction can also affect one's ability to conduct or run a business in the future.

Are You Concerned About White Collar Charges?

Government agencies have extensive resources to investigate these cases. Contact us if you suspect that law enforcement is looking at the business dealings of a company you work for or if they are targeting you specifically. These organizations typically build a case before even notifying you of the charges. As with other types of criminal law charges, hiring an attorney early in the process often allows you to avoid more serious issues and perhaps even successfully fight to dismiss those initial charges, win an acquittal in court or another positive outcome.
