A white collar crime is a nonviolent, financially motivated crime that is typically committed by a business professional or government employee for the purpose of economic gain. The Vavonese Law Firm handles a wide array of white collar crimes including:
- Check or credit card fraud
- Money laundering
- Identity theft
- Insurance fraud
- Healthcare fraud
- Intellectual property theft
If you are being investigated for a white collar crime, you may be notified by the federal government in a variety of ways. You may receive a target letter in the mail from the United States Attorney’s Office explaining that you are the target of a federal investigation. A federal law enforcement agent or search warrant may also come to your home.
Penalties for White Collar Crimes
The majority of federal white collar crimes are felonies, meaning that if you are convicted of one, you will face severe, life-altering penalties such as significant fines, time in prison, community service, probation or supervised release, and restitution to the victim. Additionally, a white collar crime conviction can damage your personal and professional reputation as well as destroy your finances and future.
Why Legal Representation is Crucial
Since white collar crimes are typically prosecuted in federal courts and usually involve complicated plans and a number of individuals, it’s essential that you contact a criminal defense attorney from Vavonese Law Firm as soon as you find out you’re under investigation. We can help you make sense out of the complex financial documents in your case and build a solid defense strategy on your behalf. With legal representation by your side, you may be able to get your charges reduced or case dismissed.
