White-collar crime is a blanket term used for a range of non-violent financial crimes. These cases may be filed in state or federal court, or both. The penalties imposed in white-collar crimes can be extensive, including incarceration in state or federal prison, fines, forfeiture of assets, restitution, and the loss of professional license. If you are under investigation or have been charged with a white-collar crime, it is imperative that your rights are protected throughout every phase of the process, including pre-indictment investigation, at trial, or on appeal.
