White Collar Crimes Are Not Like Other Crimes
White collar crime cases are substantially different from other criminal matters for several reasons:
- Charges are often preceded by long-term investigations by law enforcement. Charges may not be filed until a substantial amount of evidence has been amassed, meaning the playing field is not exactly level at the outset.
- These cases may include multiple criminal charges that can be filed in multiple jurisdictions.
- Media attention is often attracted by these cases. While innocent until proven guilty is the rule in the courtroom, the media may pass a guilty judgment prematurely.
In addition to criminal penalties, those accused of these crimes can incur career issues.They may lose their jobs even before a verdict is issued, and exoneration may be the only way to reclaim everything that they have built.
If you have been charged with a white collar crime or even if you are simply under investigation, you need a white collar crime lawyer on your side who understands the nuances involved and has the experience to protect your rights.
