White Collar Crime


White collar crimes are often not considered to be as serious as other crime but the reality is that a conviction for white collar criminal activity is just as serious as other major crimes.  In fact, the sentences for many white collar offenses can be surprisingly long, resulting in decades in prison and substantial fines.  Of course, as with all other convictions, it will follow someone for the rest of their life.

The nature of white collar crimes make it a difficult, but not impossible, case to beat.  Many times, the government will be relying on the person’s own business or financial records to prove their case and the investigation may have started without your knowledge.  With the help of a criminal-defense attorney, however, individuals facing these charges can often get the cases dismissed or the charges reduced.
