White Collar Crimes
White collar crimes and fraud offenses are a unique and highly complex area of criminal law. Unlike many other criminal charges, fraud and white collar crime allegations are often based on complex financial documents and transactions. It is critical that your criminal defense attorney conduct a proper investigation to obtain and preserve evidence, information, and witness accounts. Moreover, it is of utmost importance that your attorney have extensive trial experience so that he possess the ability to properly object to the admission of documentary evidence, witness testimony, and other evidence that should be excluded.
