To many people, the idea of crime is generally associated with illegal activities related to drugs or violent behavior. While these forms of crime tend to dominate local news headlines and the attention of municipal police departments, there are many other types of offenses that may seem less dramatic but can be equally serious. Such is the case with a general classification of activity known as white collar crime.

White collar crime refers to criminal activities that are non-violent in nature, but often motivated by financial gain. While no two cases are exactly the same, white collar offenses are commonly committed by means of deception, either in person, on paper, or electronically.
The negative impact to a white collar crime victim is usually financial and can create problems for the victim well into the future. Credit ratings may be affected, in addition to hundreds or thousands of dollars in financial losses. The consequences to an individual convicted of a white collar crime can be extremely serious, as well. Depending on the particular offense, an allegation may be prosecuted as a misdemeanor or a felony.
We have worked with white-collar crimes of all types including:
- Fraud or deceit;
- Ponzi schemes;
- Embezzlement or money laundering;
- Identity theft;

- Many other offenses.
