Battling white collar crime charges with a relentless defense
“White collar” crimes are named that because the alleged crime was committed through deception or technological means, not through violent aggression. If you are convicted of a white collar charge, the consequences and penalties are usually very severe.

What is considered a white collar crime?
The common thread in white collar criminal charges is that those harmed by them are not confronted directly by the alleged perpetrator. Deception or fraud are key components of these types of crimes. Here are a sampling of charges that fall under this category:
- Securities fraud
- Health care fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Mail fraud
- Wire fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Money laundering
- Public corruption
- Cases involving racketeering or RICO law violations
Typically, charges are not filed in white collar cases until the prosecution has conducted a lengthy investigation. Do NOT wait until you’re about to be arrested to call my office! I can protect you from the moment you’re aware of the investigation. Additionally, prosecutors sometimes commit rights violations while doing white collar investigations; if this happens, I can speak with the judge, which could lead to a dismissal of the case.
