White collar crimes are non-violent crimes that usually involve illegally gaining money, such as embezzlement, Ponzi schemes, forging documents, bank fraud, insurance fraud, mortgage fraud, accounting fraud, tax fraud, money laundering, RICO offenses, bribery and other similar crimes. Specific task forces and government agencies have been created to identify and charge individuals who are engaged in white collar crimes. Many of these crimes are charged in federal court, and the accused individual will need high quality, experienced legal counsel to fight for them. A Rockland County criminal defense attorney can help you through this difficult time. I have personally helped clients successfully defend against criminal accusations in financial crimes, and am often called upon to assist other law firms to defend difficult cases.
A knowledgeable lawyer is a necessity for defending these crimes as the careful review of financial statements, computer files and other legal documents needs to be undertaken by a skilled independent investigator.
White collar crimes carry very harsh punishments, including long prison sentences, usually in federal prison, expensive fines and restitution, as well as the potential of losing all of your bank accounts, property and other assets. I will review every part of the evidence that has been gathered against you to determine the best strategy to employ in defending your case. Failure to obtain a search warrant, lack of probable cause, or violations of your constitutional rights should be evaluated at once. Many of these criminal charges are based upon computer evidence, and defending against the charges will require help from expert witnesses, brought on board to provide supporting evidence for the defense.
My years of experience have been of great benefit to my clients in difficult white collar crime cases. If you are facing criminal charges, either at in state or federal court, I urge you to contact my firm as soon as possible. If you are under investigation for a white collar crime, it is imperative that you exercise your right to remain silent and get legal representation to protect you. An investigation almost always leads to an arrest in a short period of time, and it is necessary to protect yourself with legal help before answering any questions from investigators.
