Our lawyers have more than 30 years of combined experience in the field of criminal defense. We are passionate about ensuring that our clients are defended correctly and aggressively. Your rights should be protected from the minute you are arrested until the case is finalized.
The exact penalty which is imposed on a conviction depends on the type of offense and the degree of financial damage. In some cases, a conviction for a white collar crime involves jail or prison time, as well as expensive fines. Even if the case is dropped, even an arrest for a fraud related offense can lead to your reputation being tarnished. We work to help protect your reputation and see that your life isn't negatively affected by being involved with this type of charge.
