Defending Those Charged With White-Collar Crimes


White-collar crimes are no longer the strict domain of business people and politicians diverting funds for financial gain. The internet age has ushered in a new era of computer-based fraud that includes identity theft, credit card fraud, theft of intellectual property and new crimes that have yet to be named. While the victims were not physically injured, law enforcement and government officials are proactive on the state and federal level in pursuing prosecution. These charges can involve massive fines and lengthy jail sentences, so it is always best to speak with an attorney knowledgeable in these matters as soon as possible.

We have extensive experience working on white-collar crime in the Southeast. We are on top of all the emerging rulings taking place in this area of law, but we still work with our clients the same way, sitting down and listening to the details of their cases. Depending on the charges and which courts they involve, we then construct a strategy based on experience that will help limit the impact these crimes will have on your life.

We Have A Strong Background In White-Collar Defense

White-collar crimes include a wide range of charges. Our experience includes the following areas:

  • Fraud: This includes selling false goods and the intentional misrepresentation of an asset’s value either online or face-to-face.
  • Corporate fraud: Often causing significant damage to the economy and financial loss, these charges can also include deceiving investors, auditors and analysts.
  • Tax evasion: Providing false information on your tax forms or illegally shielding assets to avoid taxation are common examples.
  • Insider trading or self-dealing: This involves illegal trading of stock outside of regular hours.
  • Computer-based crimes: This is the trafficking or theft of information on governmental, organizations’, business’s or individual computer systems, including the sale of passwords.

Everyone Deserves A Strong Defense

If you or a loved is charged with a white-collar crime, it is advisable to speak with a lawyer with a strong background defending these legal charges. This is particularly true if the case involves the federal government with its’ seemingly endless legal resources. Not only can our attorneys argue your side of the case for the best possible results, we also can fight back against the asset forfeiture of money or belongings that are often unfairly seized as part of these cases.
