White Collar Crimes

In these tough economic times, many individuals and companies fail to meet their financial obligations. At the same time, investigators and prosecutors have become increasingly aggressive in their approach, often freezing assets before trial in a calculated effort to deprive citizens of their ability to fend off accusations.

It is critical to have counsel early in the process and to employ a lawyer who can recognize and address criminal issues before it is too late. While some white collar matters start with a civil case, the consequences of a criminal investigation are more serious.
