Charged with a White Collar Crime? You Might Be Facing Several Charges.

White-collar crime is a general term for crimes committed in the workplace, often through taking advantage of employment privileges. Some specific criminal charges that fall under this category include:

  • Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Income tax evasion
  • Theft by swindle
  • Securities violations

If you have been charged with a white-collar crime, you may be facing up to four different but related areas of legal exposure: jail time, loss of a professional license, a criminal record that can harm your future employment and private lawsuits (civil litigation) on the part of anyone claiming harm from your alleged conduct.

We have the experience to handle all of these matters. We will do an extensive analysis of the claims being made against you. We will do an independent investigation of the facts and retain expert witnesses if necessary. We will then explain the range of potential outcomes so you can make an informed decision about how to proceed.
