Types Of White Collar Cases
- Fraud — We handle cases involving bank fraud, mortgage fraud, securities fraud, and mail and wire fraud, among many other types of fraud.
- Embezzlement and theft — From shoplifting to multimillion-dollar embezzlement, we have experience with all types of theft.
- Conspiracy — Conspiracy charges can encompass a wide variety of situations that may be considered “conspiratorial” conduct. Our firm can help you understand your specific charges and what they mean for your future.
- Honest Services Fraud — Unlike pecuniary or monetary fraud, honest services fraud includes allegations of bribery and/or kickbacks that implicate the loss of honest services. In the private sector, this is when an employee is accused of depriving their employer of their honest services through bribes or kickbacks. In the public sector, this can implicate bribes or kickbacks involving public officials, especially in the awarding of public contracts.
- Other white collar charges — We can represent you in any type of white collar case, including Internet crimes, money laundering, tax crimes and antitrust defense.

Your Advocate In The Criminal Justice System
Many times, people who are charged with their first white collar crime offense did not know what they were doing was illegal. We have experience with defendants in this situation. We discuss what will happen in each stage of their cases and work with prosecutors to explain our clients’ position. Perhaps the problem was a simple accounting error. Maybe the client was an unwitting part of a criminal operation; we may negotiate a deal to offer the client as a witness in these cases, if appropriate. We use all our skills and resources and work with accomplished investigators to get the best possible outcome for our clients.
To build our defense in white collar cases, we work with forensic accountants, environmental experts, computer experts and investigators. Our firm can handle a complete range of white collar crime charges and we have extensive experience with electronic discovery and various technology tools.
