White-Collar Crime

Crimes that do not usually involve threats of violence but do involve deceit, fraud, or violations of trust fall into the realm of “white collar crime.” Generally, property, money or illegal transactions are at the core of these offenses. White-collar crimes tend to be fairly complex, and so are the laws prohibiting them. So it is crucial you are represented by an experienced criminal defense attorney if you want to reduce or avoid the penalties associated with these offenses, such as imprisonment, heavy fines, and the loss of your professional license.
