WHITE-COLLAR CRIMES DEFENSE
White-Collar Crimes Defense
White-collar crime is defined as a crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupation. White collar is also the term used to describe a crime committed by business people and professionals where deceptive practices and fraud are used to obtain money. Unlike many other crimes, white-collar crime does not typically include any type of violence or physical harm. White-collar crime overlaps with corporate crime because the opportunity for fraud, bribery, insider trading, embezzlement, computer crime, and forgery is more available to white-collar employees.
White-collar crimes include fraud, bankruptcy fraud, bribery, insider trading, embezzlement, computer crime, medical crime, public corruption, identity theft, environmental crime, pension fund crime, RICO crimes, consumer fraud, occupational crime, securities fraud, financial fraud, and forgery.
Because each white-collar case is so unique, we ask that you contact us for a professional consultation so that we may better assist you based on the needs of your circumstances.
