    Types of White Collar Crimes

    White collar crime commonly refers to those crimes committed in a professional capacity and usually involving an element of financial gain. Charges that typically fall under white collar crime include:

    • Tax evasion
    • Securities fraud
    • Insider trading
    • Identity theft
    • Mail fraud
    • Medicare fraud
    • Mortgage fraud
    • Public corruption
    • Official misconduct
    • Embezzlement
    • RICO
    • Antitrust violations
    • Counterfeiting

    It’s Never Too Early To Start Planning Your Defense

    White collar cases are often very complex to investigate. Prosecutors and investigators frequently rely on information provided by the subject of an investigation in order to prove claims against them. A knock on the door from an FBI agent, a letter from the IRS, or law enforcement requesting access to information without a warrant — all can be the start of evidence gathering for their side.

    You may not even realize the impact your statements have on your case, which is why it is important to have a lawyer assisting you as soon as possible.

    What are the Penalties of White Collar Crimes?

    Convictions carry severe penalties, including restitution and jail/prison time - defendants take a risk without an attorney representing them. You may also be subject to forfeiture laws and lose your property even if you aren't charged or convicted.

    Defending an individual accused of committing a white collar crime takes unique knowledge and professionalism. Contact us today for help.
