White Collar Crimes

Kingman White Collar Crime Attorneys

What is a White Collar Crime?

The FBI defines white-collar crime as “those illegal acts which are characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust and which are not dependent upon the application or threat of physical force or violence” More commonly, they are criminal acts perpetrated by both individuals and corporations, which take place in the business world. These types of cases are mostly tried in federal court, though the laws are also enforced at the state level.

White collar offenses include:

  • Insider trading
  • Swindling
  • Embezzlement
  • Defrauding consumers
  • Anti-trust violations
  • Bank fraud
  • Bribery
  • Internet/computer fraud
  • Credit card fraud
  • Counterfeiting
  • Extortion
  • Insurance fraud
  • Securities fraud
  • Tax evasion
  • Money laundering

When should you hire a defense lawyer?

You may have heard, seen or even read something that makes you suspect that you are the target of a criminal investigation. Don’t wait. If under investigation for such a crime, it is crucial that you retain an attorney from Dwane Cates Law Group, P.L.L.C. It is almost certain that you will be arrested within a short period of time, and engaging in answering questions without an attorney can be dangerous to your defense case.

If we are brought in early enough, we can then do our own investigation. We can speak with corporate officials, government entities and other relevant parties and agencies to determine what kind of case they have or are building against you. It may be possible to negotiate a resolution to the matter, saving you and your loved ones the expense, stress, publicity and embarrassment of a public trial.
