What Exactly is White-Collar Crime?

White-collar crime is a nonviolent crime motivated by financial gain and committed by a business, a government professional, or anyone in the process of their occupation. Charges can come from a variety of circumstances and include these matters:

  • Bribery
  • Cybercrime
  • Drug Charges
  • Embezzlement
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Mail and Wire Fraud
  • Money Laundering
  • Public Corruption
  • RICO
  • Securities Fraud
  • Tax Law Violations
  • Telemarketing Fraud
  • Theft of Trade Secrets

Federal statutory and regulatory law has a broad reach. If you face any form of investigation or if you have been formally charged, you need to act quickly to minimize damage and protect your rights.

You Do Have the Right to Remain Silent

Please remember, it is important you fully understand your Miranda Rights. It is very true that anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. Federal agents are looking for evidence of a crime, and statements made in the duress of a moment can result in mistakes and factual errors that can haunt your case. If you are under arrest, exercise your right to remain silent except to assert your right to counsel. Make sure to always have your attorney present when speaking to federal agents if a criminal investigation is possible.
