Examining the Details of Your Case
The term "white collar crime" is generally used to describe crimes that involve theft or misuse of property in the workplace, or other violations of professional trust.
Common white collar crimes include fraud, money laundering, embezzlement, and insider trading and counterfeiting. There is often a fine line between legal activity and illegal activity, especially when employees are given some leeway in handling money.
I defend people charged with any financial or white collar crime in New Jersey, such as:
- Credit card fraud
- Writing bad checks
- Identity theft
- Insurance and healthcare fraud
- Computer crimes
- Official misconduct
Protecting Your Employment Record
Any criminal conviction can have a serious impact on your future employment prospects, but this is especially true of white collar crimes. A fraud or embezzlement conviction on your criminal record will give many employers a specific reason not to hire you.
I always take future employment consequences into account and explain the possible consequences to you when we are choosing a strategy for your criminal defense. It may be possible to get your fraud or other white collar crime charge downgraded to a lesser offense. I have ample experience with local courts and prosecutors and can fully explore this option on your behalf.
