Financial crimes and white collar crimes are non-violent offenses which involve the use of fraud or deception for personal financial gain. If an allegation has been made that you illegally obtained or possessed property or money which was not rightfully yours, you could face charges of a financial crime. These offenses are taken very seriously, especially in the case of long-term or complex operations which are under investigation by federal agencies.
We offer the aggressive defense for the following financial crimes:
- Credit card fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Securities fraud
- Wire fraud
- Mail fraud
- Tax evasion
- Identity theft
How Are Financial Crimes Charged?
Typically, financial offenses are based on the value of the property or money which was obtained through fraud or deception. Financial crimes which involve lesser amounts, such as using someone else's credit card to buy something small, could be a misdemeanor charge. More involved crimes and those which involve large amounts of money are typically charged as felonies or federal offenses.
Consequences of a Financial Crime
The exact penalties you face depend on the details of the crime you have allegedly committed. The consequences of a white collar crime often involve time in jail or prison, large fines, and a period of probation or parole. In some cases, you may be required to do community service. Having a financial crime on your permanent criminal record can affect you far into the future, as employers may not want to give a job to someone with this type of charge on their record.
It is important that you act quickly if you have been arrested or believe you are under investigation. We are here to listen to your story and aggressively defend your rights.
