When it comes to white collar crimes, there are no "soft" charges. You could face years in prison and heavy fines. Our attorneys fight for our clients' interests in the face of investigations and allegations.
Criminal Charges for Business & Financial Offenses
The term white collar crime refers to nonviolent, financially motivated crimes. Many are committed by "white collar" professionals or by people who work for a government agency, but not all of them. Some people accused of committing white collar crimes, such as counterfeiting or identity theft, do not wear a suit and tie to work as the term implies.
White collar charges are often brought against:
- Doctors (insurance fraud)
- Corporate executives
- Business managers
- Loan officers
- Other professionals
Because white collar crime often involves accusations against people in positions of public trust or well-known figures, charges can attract serious media attention. Once convicted of betraying the public, a defendant may never recover their career or rebuild their life.
