While these crimes often unfold in seemingly normal office settings, they can often land those who perpetrate them in prison. A charge stemming from a white-collar crime is a serious matter.

Serious Charges That Can Take Place At The Federal LevelTraditionally involving fraud, white-collar crimes are very serious infractions that often invoke hefty punishments at both the state and federal levels. Having a team of attorneys with the knowledge and experience to handle white-collar crimes can be critical to your case. We can offer defense services for several criminal charges, including:
- Fraud: This offense may involve bankruptcy, credit cards, health care, insurance, mortgages, welfare, or securities. Forgery charges can merit similar consequences, and our firm can assist with those as well.
- Blackmail and extortion: Illegally demanding compensation can be a significant crime. We can also aid in bribery and racketeering charges.
- Corporate espionage and intellectual property theft: Spying on a company can be illegal, especially when it is done to harvest trade secrets.
- Counterfeiting: Drafting counterfeit documents or currency is a serious, sometimes federal crime.
- Embezzlement and money laundering: Illegally funneling money from your business may find you charged with embezzlement. Attempting to “clean” ill-gotten funds with your business is also a violation of the law.
- Insider trading: What you thought was a harmless stock tip could prove to be a federal crime.
- Ponzi and investment schemes: Defrauding investors is often a harshly punishable offense.
- Tax evasion: Circumventing your taxes can leave you facing the legal heft of the United States government — our attorneys can help.
