White-Collar Crimes Charges And Your Options

Not every criminal offense is violent in nature. Sometimes people commit financial offenses because they don't think they're hurting anyone. This could include fudging the details on tax filings or an insurance claim. The government takes these offenses seriously, though, and is prepared to file serious charges with serious consequences — including prison sentences — for those who commit them.

Fraud is the most common type of white-collar crime. Any time a person uses deception to obtain money illegally, he or she could be charged with fraud. Common examples include:

  • Insurance fraud (falsifying claims or lying on a claim to obtain more money)
  • Tax fraud (providing inaccurate information on your tax returns or tax filings)
  • Credit card fraud (including lying about stolen credit cards or regarding returns)
  • Mail fraud (using the US Postal Service to commit fraud)
  • Internet fraud (conducting fraudulent activity over the phone)
  • Bank fraud (using false information to obtain more money from the bank)
  • Embezzlement and money laundering (fraudulently taking money from your business or organization)

In many cases, prosecutors will charge an individual with multiple counts (or types) of fraud. This could escalate the charges against you from the state level to a federal level crime. These types of crimes carry much more significant sentencing and could send you to federal prison. You need representation who has significant experience in this area and knows how to work with the prosecution to keep the charges against you to a minimum.

We will carefully investigate the allegations against you and build a solid case on your behalf both at trial and sentencing, if necessary. If the matter is a misunderstanding, we will use the evidence at hand to defend you.
