Determined counsel in Chatham, NJ for clients accused of state and federal white collar crimes

Traditionally, white collar crime was a theft offense that required a professional level of skill to commit. It covered matters such as embezzlement and tax fraud. Gradually, the definition has expanded to cover numerous types of nonviolent economic crimes, such as money laundering, insurance fraud, securities fraud, identity theft, and computer hacking. However, a great number of white collar crime investigations do not focus on deliberately plotted criminal enterprises: because state and federal regulations on businesses have become so complex, a fiduciary for a company can too easily become an unwitting felon based on a minor act or omission. We provide clients with an aggressive and detailed defense to state and federal white collar crimes, using facts to counter the narrative that investigators are trying to establish.
