Minimize Damage to Your Professional Reputation

As a professional, corporate executive, or company, a charge alone can ruin a reputation. Many times an arrest can lead to the loss of a professional license (Series 7, Teaching License, Law License, Medical License), and arrests are also reported professional licensing agencies.

If our legal services are retained early enough in the process, our goal will be to try to prevent an arrest and the resulting public embarrassment. If we are retained after an arrest, our attorneys aggressively defend the criminal charge as well as your reputation through carefully planned statements in response to the prosecution or a professional agency.

Comprehensive Overview of White Collar Crime Charges

White collar crimes are usually identified as a non-violent crime such as the following state white collar and federal white collar crimes:

  • Fraud
  • Bank fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Real estate fraud
  • Grand larceny
  • Money laundering
  • Embezzlement
  • Internet crimes and internet fraud
  • Securities fraud and insider trading
  • Medicaid, Medicare & Social Security fraud

White collar crimes are usually serious felonies where the minimum prison sentence is one year. In federal court, prison sentences are determined by the federal sentencing guidelines. Sometimes, a probation sentence is not available and prison time is mandated, making it critical that you have aggressive defense on your side.

In most instances it can take years for the prosecution to build a case. Having an attorney by your side to speak directly to law enforcement is always advisable. Our clients never speak to law enforcement unless we are sitting next to them and we advise to answer a question. Our clients are never left alone.

Your property can also be threatened, as restitution can be required for certain offenses, resulting in the government seizing homes, cars, boats, or any unprotected asset. You need serious defense, and we are always available to meet and discuss legal strategy and the best white collar crime defense.
