“White-collar crime” refers to non-violent crime with a financial motivation, usually committed by professionals working in business or government. White-collar criminal activities are often wide-ranging and complex, and may victimize large numbers of people. For this reason, the government agencies that investigate and prosecute white-collar crime take these offenses very seriously.
White-collar crime may be prosecuted under federal law, state law, or both. Especially in federal matters, the government has nearly limitless resources to apply in investigating and prosecuting defendants. Often, by the time an individual realizes that he or she is in the crosshairs of an investigation, a tremendous amount of evidence has already been amassed by the government.
The stakes are very high for individuals charged with white-collar offenses. Conviction often costs them their employment, their reputation, tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in restitution and fines, and of course, their freedom. With so much on the line, a strong defense isn't an expense, it's a necessary investment.
