Facing white-collar criminal charges carries serious consequences. Convictions can lead to significant fines and lengthy jail sentences. For professionals, careers could end, professional licenses run the risk of revocation, and professional reputations may never be the same.
Crimes under a bright spotlight
White-collar crimes account for 3% of federal prosecutions every year. However, they represent high-profile media stories that earn banner headlines and continuous attention.
White-collar crimes can take many forms and include:
- Money laundering
- Tax evasion
- Ponzi schemes
- Intellectual property theft

High-stakes criminal issues require an attorney who can counter the most aggressive of prosecutors, possessing insight into common strategies they use. The objective is to overcome the insurmountable odds that come with it and pursue the best possible outcome.
Additionally, insight as a former Assistant U.S. Attorney and state prosecutor is of significant value. Personally, working on every facet of your case while personalizing strategies based on the specific issues can hopefully provide the best possible outcome.
