What constitutes a white collar crime?

White collar crime typically describes fraudulent or criminal activities carried out for financial gain. Examples of white collar crime include embezzlement, insider trading or securities fraud, healthcare, insurance or mortgage fraud, money laundering and more. Cases associated with these crimes tend to be very complex and it takes a firm experienced in white collar criminal defense to effectively defend against charges.

Possible white collar criminal defenses

White collar crimes can involve numerous state and federal laws and both civil and criminal charges can be brought against a person for white collar criminal activity. Our white collar criminal defense attorneys aggressively pursue every possible defense for our clients. 

One possible defense strategy is to prove that you were unaware that any unlawful activity was taking place. We may argue that you lacked the capacity, training, or access to understand that criminal acts were taking place.

We may also be able to prove a lack of intent. In cases of fraud often a defendant will unwittingly deceive or mislead a person or organization. If the prosecution is unable to prove the defendant’s intent to commit fraud, charges may be dropped. 

White collar criminal defense attorneys are skilled at navigating the complexities of a case without losing the details. White collar criminal investigations tend to yield lots of complicated evidence and we can look for holes or small errors in whatever evidence is used against you. This tactic can be quite effective.

One additional white collar criminal defense tactic is to demonstrate victimhood. Perhaps there is room to argue that you were the victim of entrapment or coercion. Additionally, we may be able to find proof that the alleged victims were also complicit in some type of illegal activity.
