Experienced White Collar Criminal Defense Attorney

If you are facing a crime that is considered "white collar" you need an experienced white collar criminal defense lawyer.  I have significant and practical experience regarding white collar crimes. 

The term white collar crime comprises a wide array of criminal acts that are committed in a business or professional setting for financial gain.  Those accused of white collar crimes face not only the pressures of criminal prosecution, but also negative publicity and catastrophic damage to their finances.  Penalties for white collar crimes range from probation, fines and criminal forfeiture, to lengthy prison sentences. 

As a former prosecutor, I understand the severity of the consequences to my clients and will work diligently to obtain the most favorable outcome possible including getting charges dismissed, negotiating a plea bargain or obtaining a not guilty verdict. I have a significant and robust financial litigation background involving complex securities and fraud claims

If you are under suspicion or investigation for white collar crime charges, contact me as soon as possible so that I may properly advise you of your options.  Under no circumstances should you talk to anyone without an attorney! Your silence cannot be used against you. However, statements made to the police investigators without the presence of an experienced attorney by your side can seriously jeopardize your defense options. 

I represent individuals in state, local and federal jurisdictions and defend clients against a wide range of white collar criminal charges such as:

  • Securities fraud
  • Tax fraud
  • Mail and wire fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Real estate fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Forgery
  • Embezzlement
  • Conspiracy
  • Money laundering
  • Identity theft
  • Credit card fraud
  • Medicare, Medicaid and healthcare fraud
  • Internet crime

Aggressive representation by an experienced white collar crimes defense lawyer may reduce or eliminate potential civil consequences of criminal prosecution such as claims for restitution, damages and forfeiture.

If you have been contacted by the police or charged with a crime, your rights, freedom, and livelihood are in jeopardy.  No matter what the charges, no matter how complex the case, I have the background and know-how to provide the aggressive and skilled legal representation you deserve.  Contact me today for a confidential consultation.

As a former prosecutor, I fully understand the power law enforcement has. As a trial attorney, I know the law seems very scary.
