White collar crime charges have to be handled swiftly. As a defendant, you can’t sit back and hope that the charges will go away because they won’t. These cases often have a lot of evidence that can make a big impact on the outcome of the case. If you think that you are being investigated for white collar crimes, you should learn about your options. There are some cases in which the attempt to cover up the criminal activity makes things worse, so be very careful.

We are here to help you figure out a plan to address the issues.
One thing that can make a big difference is where your case is being handled. You have to handle state charges differently from federal charges.

Sometimes, defendants are offered a plea deal. If you are offered one, remember that these are only appropriate if you agree that you did commit the crime. You shouldn’t ever entertain a plea deal if you are innocent. We can help you evaluate the terms of a plea deal so you can determine if you are going to accept it or not.
