White collar crimes are those that encompass a variety of non-violent crimes that usually involve financial transactions and are oftentimes committed by those in a position of trust to the alleged victim. The federal government has the necessary resources at its disposal to investigate and prosecute those accused or suspected of white collar crimes. Since many white collar crimes are charged as felonies, a conviction will cost you in substantial fines, jail time, and loss of your professional license.

White collar crimes are typically very complex cases which makes it all the more important to have an attorney with you who understands how such crimes are prosecuted and what defensive strategies are effective.

White collar crimes are generally non-violent crimes and can include:

  • Bank fraud
  • Wire fraud and mail fraud
  • Securities fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Forgery
  • Extortion, bribery, and public corruption
  • RICO and money laundering
  • Computer hacking
  • Credit card fraud and identity theft
  • Tax evasion
  • Counterfeiting
  • Theft
  • Healthcare or insurance fraud
  • Money laundering
  • Corruption

If you have been accused of a white collar crime, you may be facing numerous penalties that you may not even consider. Not only may you be looking at time in prison, but also probation, fines, community service, repayment of restitution, forfeiture of property, and the loss of employment opportunities in the future. Most cruel of all, your family can lose their home or important savings can be confiscated if it is connected in any way with the alleged crime.

Most white collar crimes involve some kind of deceit and concealment towards some financial benefit. Since many of those accused of these crimes have never been in legal trouble before, it may be some time before they seek legal assistance.
