What is a White Collar Crime?
A white collar crime is generally categorized as an illegal action taken to personally benefit financially or for some other non-violent aim. Furthermore, a white collar crime includes some form of concealment, deceit, or abuse of trust. Most white collar crimes are tried as felonies and are investigated by the government.

Though there are too many to list here, many of the white collar cases we handle relate to:

What to Do Next
If you have been charged with a crime or fear that you are being investigated for a white collar crime, you need to retain a criminal defense attorney immediately. Doing so allows you to decline questioning until your lawyer is present. Be sure to completely cease any criminal activity and do not speak to law enforcement without your attorney present. We’ll help you get through and protect you from jeopardizing your case.
