White Collar Defense Attorney
When people imagine crime in their head, they often imagine a shady character on a dimly lit street looking to cause trouble. The truth is that even the most respected people in the community can be charged with a crime that has just as serious penalties as that shady character from the street. White collar crimes often involve complex transactions and much paperwork, so it is important to hire an attorney who has handled these cases before and knows what to look for in this paper trail.
Some crimes that are generally lumped in with white collar crimes are:
These crimes all involve dishonesty and a duplicity that makes them unique from property crimes or other offenses. If you have been charged with one of these white collar crimes, it is important to find an attorney who has experience successfully defending against these charges.
This is because these crimes not only threaten a person’s liberty but they also threaten a person’s livelihood. Even being accused of these crimes can sully an otherwise sterling reputation within the community. If you are convicted of one of these crimes, you may find yourself barred from ever working in your chosen field again. To prevent this misfortune and preserve your hard-earned reputation, you need an attorney who will aggressively fight these charges and get you the best outcome possible.
As with property crimes, showing intent is vital to proving one of these white collar crimes. It is not enough to show that an error occurred or that there is money missing, it needs to be proven that a person intentionally set out to break the law. We can question this intent and help prove that you did not set out to commit the crime of which you are accused. The attorney will need to review the facts surrounding your case before formulating a defense theory, however, so contact us today to learn how we can help.
