Bank fraud, mortgage fraud, computer crimes, counterfeiting, insider trading, RICO, credit card fraud and extortion are but a few of the white collar crimes that one can be accused of. A white collar crime is a non-violent crime that usually takes place in a business or professional environment for the purpose of gaining unlawful profit. The majority of white collar crimes are considered federal crimes, and are consequently tried in federal courts.

When you learn that you are under investigation for a white collar crime, you must take action immediately to protect your reputation and your career. Our firm is waiting to help you challenge your charges with the power of the law.

Cases We Handle

Counterfeiting
To counterfeit is to illegally imitate something that is protected by a patent. This can involve counterfeiting currency or counterfeiting consumer products.

Credit Card Fraud
This crime is wide in range, but deals primarily with theft of credit card information for the purpose of fraudulently obtaining funds.

Embezzlement
This crime involves withholding funds that actually belong to someone else. Typically, these funds are entrusted to a business or individual for a time, such as to a financial advisor, but not returned.

Identity Theft
This crime is committed when an individual steals someone else's information (credit card information, social security number, etc.) for the purpose of gaining access to their funds.

Mortgage Fraud
Those alleged of mortgage fraud are accused of falsifying information on their mortgage loan (home loan) application.

RICO
This stands for the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. It was enacted in 1970 to combat organized crime rings, specifically the crime of racketeering.

Tax Evasion
Anyone who provides false information on their tax return statement commits tax fraud. These types of cases are investigated by the IRS.
