St. Louis White Collar Crime Attorney

Criminal Defense Representation in Any White Collar Crime Charges

White collar crimes are generally nonviolent offenses aimed at financial theft or defrauding others through deceit or misrepresentation for personal gain. Because they are often committed by business professionals, entrepreneurs, or public officials, they have been labeled "white collar." They often involve financial transactions, paper trails, computer files, banking information and statements, and other types of financial documents. These crimes include many types of fraud, such as mail fraud, bank fraud, credit card fraud, fraudulent checks, securities fraud, mortgage fraud, insurance fraud, Medicare and health care fraud, Social Security fraud, welfare fraud, investment fraud, and more.

If you or someone you know has been charged or is being investigated by a state or federal agency for white collar crimes in the St. Louis area, you will want legal representation from an attorney who is familiar with and adept at defending this type of crime. The St. Louis criminal defense attorney at the Whiteley Law Firm handles all kinds of white collar crime cases, whether at the state or federal level. If you are being investigated for a white collar crime, you should contact him immediately and refrain from answering questions by law enforcement until you speak with him about your case.

White Collar Crimes and Consequences

White collar crimes also include such activities as identity theft, embezzlement, forgery, counterfeiting, money laundering, racketeering, investment scams and schemes, blackmail, public corruption, internet fraud and scams, bribery, extortion, insider trading, tax evasion, and more. Where these crimes cross state lines and involve many victims, they may be investigated and prosecuted by the FBI or other federal agencies.

In any type of white collar crime, your future may be severely hampered and restricted if you are convicted. Such a criminal conviction can make it difficult to find employment, housing, or be eligible for professional licenses as well as involve jail or prison sentences, heavy fines, restitution payment with interest to victims, and probation.
