Aggressive White Collar Crime Attorneys Defending Your Rights and Freedom
While there is no fixed definition for what constitutes a white collar crime, the term is generally used to refer to a number of non-violent crimes that are grouped together. These crimes typically have cheating or dishonesty as their common element, and the cases are frequently complex and technical. Typically they are financial crimes.
Not every criminal defense attorney or criminal law firm is qualified to defend white collar criminal charges, due to the complex and unique nature of these crimes.

If you’ve already confessed we may be able to get your confession thrown out of court, depending on the circumstances. We will explore every avenue in minimizing or eliminating the penalties you could be facing.

Embezzlement is the theft from one’s employer. Embezzlement charges can be charged for any amount of money and frequently include credit card fraud, stealing of either small amounts over time or a single, large amount and may also include bookkeeping manipulation. The employer, who files the police report, can attempt to withhold your salary until the case is resolved, and this can result in serious financial difficulties. Having an embezzlement defense attorney negotiate with the employer may give you a chance to avoid prosecution. The case can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the amount alleged to have been taken, and penalties for embezzlement can be very severe. Read more…
