No matter how glamorous white collar crimes appear in the movies, this category of crime is not spectacular. Competent defense when charged with fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, extortion, and a much longer list of white collar crimes is essential. These types of crimes usually involve a lengthy trial process and are emotionally grueling on the accused. Attorneys who are familiar with defense of these crimes work to negotiate lesser sentences or exoneration of the charges for you.
If you have been arrested for a financially motivated, non-violent crime committed for monetary gain, chances are you are involved in a white-collar crime. Fraud, embezzlement, bribery, insider trading, Ponzi schemes, money laundering and identity theft are common white-collar crimes. Most alleged white-collar criminals involve persons of high respectability and high incomes.
