Defending Against The Full Range Of White Collar Criminal Charges
People charged with white collar crimes may be facing more than prison time. Conviction on a charge such as fraud or embezzlement may mean the end of a career and the loss of a reputation. The consequences to an individual’s family may also be profound — even if there is a not guilty verdict or dismissal of charges. It is important to have an attorney who can manage both the legal issues and the inevitable collateral damage.
