White collar crime is a distinct area of the law. Many experienced criminal defense lawyers have little experience defending white collar crime. To begin, many white collar crimes are charged as federal crimes. The federal criminal system utilizes its own set of rules and procedures, including the federal sentencing guidelines and federal rules of evidence.

White collar crime may be handled in a criminal track or civil track within the federal system. The criminal and civil tracks are handled by two different divisions of the U.S. Attorney’s Office and may proceed simultaneously. Our firm has extensive experience with state and federal criminal charges, including white collar cases that proceed in the civil or criminal track of the federal system.

Some of the white collar and serious non-violent charges we handle include:

Money laundering
Tax fraud
Insurance fraud
Mail fraud
Honest Services Fraud

Stock fraud
Promoting Prostitution
