White collar crimes, sometimes referred to as "professional crimes", are illegal activities which typically involve the use of technology, actions to defraud organizations, institutions, or others for financial gain. Professional white collar crimes are illegal activities that typically do not include physical violence. When charged with a white collar crime you should take it very seriously, and consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.

Being convicted of a professional white collar crime can be catastrophic to you personally, professionally, and financially. As new behaviors are identified, professional white collar crimes are an ever-changing field with new laws being written to include these new behaviors. White collar crimes are aggressively prosecuted and are often tried in federal court.

Types of White Collar Crimes include, but are not limited to:

  • Health Care Fraud;
  • Computer / Internet Fraud;
  • Welfare Fraud;
  • Embezzlement;
  • Insurance Fraud;
  • Mortgage Fraud;
  • Mail Fraud;
  • Wire Fraud;
  • Telemarketing Fraud;
  • Pharmaceutical Crimes;
  • Counterfeiting / Forgery;
  • Import / Export Crimes;
  • Extortion;
  • Perjury.

Depending on the circumstances, level of involvement, and type of White Collar Crime an individual is charged with they may be facing either misdemeanor or felony criminal charges. The type of White Collar Crime may also determine if the accused is to be tried in State or Federal Court.

It is important to be aware that in order to obtain a conviction, the burden of proof for Federal Prosecutors is less than that of State Prosecutors. In State Court the accused must be found to be guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. In Federal Court, a small amount of doubt may exist by the jury to achieve a conviction.

When an individual is charged with a White Collar Crime, or any other criminal offense, it is important to be well informed regarding the charges against you, your legal rights, options which may be available to you, viable defense strategies, and if the case goes to trial, aggressive defense of your legal rights and freedoms.
