White Collar Crime refers to a broad spectrum of criminal cases usually instituted by the Federal Government. While Collar Crime cases involve federal grand jury investigations, target letters from federal agencies, Medicaid, Medicare or other governmental audits and investigations, Securities investigations, SEC inquiries into business practices and conduct, and a whole host of other crimes under the white collar crime or “fraud” umbrella. Often, there is a long period of intense scrutiny and investigation by the Federal Government of an individual or a business before a criminal charge is brought.
It is important to retain an experienced lawyer early in the process even during the investigation phase in order to keep the investigation from being turned into a criminal charge. White Collar Crime can have a serious and detrimental effect on an individual’s and corporation’s financial well-being and reputation.
Those that are being investigated or charged with White Collar Crimes deserve and are entitled to the same state and federal constitutional protections afforded any other potential criminal defendant.
