Sarasota White Collar Crime Attorney

What is a white collar crime?

White collar crimes are traditionally thought of as non-violent offenses typically committed by the professional or business person. These are offenses committed for financial gain. Many of these involve complex financial matters and an investigation by law enforcement may last for weeks or months, and in some cases years. When investigators are looking into an activity they may approach a number of people to get information. They are simply looking for evidence of wrongdoing and complicity in wrongdoing. If you are approached no matter how innocent you may feel you are, do not speak with an investigator without first consulting a Sarasota criminal attorney for advice.

There are a number of mistakes possible in an interview with an investigator. For example an individual might misunderstand a question, or the investigator might misunderstand an answer. Once an investigator has the wrong idea it can be very difficult to correct the situation. These pitfalls can be avoided by having experienced legal representation.

A skilled white collar crime lawyer with the firm is prepared to assist a client accused of such crimes as:

  • Identity theft
  • Income tax evasion
  • Fraud
  • Forgery
  • Embezzlement
  • Counterfeiting
  • Bribery
  • Extortion
  • Other serious offenses

It is much easier to correct misinformation gathered during an investigation before charges are filed. Clearing up an investigator's or a prosecutor's misunderstandings can result in no charges being filed. If you have already been charged, there is no time to lose. Facing such serious charges can be very stressful, but you have the right to a powerful defense. Begin your defense by talking with a Bradenton criminal defense lawyer who can aggressively defend you. Call The Miller Law Firm for a free consultation.
