    Understanding White Collar Crimes in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County

    Living in Winston-Salem or anywhere in Forsyth County, you may be aware of the local economic landscape and the presence of various professional sectors. Unfortunately, with a thriving business environment, white-collar crimes can become a significant concern.

    Local government entities such as the Forsyth County District Attorney's Office and the Winston-Salem Police Department are vigilant in investigating and prosecuting white-collar crimes.

    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.

    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. If you suspect that you may be the subject of a current or future investigation, it is always best to consult with a lawyer experienced in defending white collar crimes.
