White Collar Crime Defense
What is a white collar crime?
White collar crimes are typically non-violent offenses committed by a person of trust in a corporate setting. These crimes are generally theft in the form of fraud, insider trading, computer crimes, money laundering, forgery, identity theft, bribery, embezzlement and more. They are committed against both clients and the corporation the employee works for, with the purpose of personal gain.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding the offense, those found guilty of white collar crimes could face severe penalties such as long-term imprisonment and steep fines of up to three times the amount gained by committing the crime.
