White Collar Crime

Criminal Lawyers use specific techniques depending on the type of charge; tactics, manuevering and strategy that lawyers who regularly defend criminals know. The investigation generally requires discovery motions to compel prosecutors, employers, banks and other institutions to turn over records that can be used in your defense. Because of the time and specialized skills involved, mounting a successful case result requires a TEAM of criminal attorneys and experts, not just a single lawyer. Criminal lawyers that specialize in criminal cases also have a very deep understanding of criminal court proceedings, rules of evidence, negotiations, interviewing witness/victim or company personnel/police and so forth. Prosecutors generally do not pursue cases they don't feel they can prove in trial. Therefore, it is critical to dig deeper into your case than the prosecution and inject reasonable doubt to win in the courtroom if the case must go to trial.

Your criminal lawyer should always consider the possibility of a trial in your case, particularly if you did not commit the alleged crime. Lawyers from LibertyBell Law Group have extensive experience in defense cases that go to trial in state and federal courts all across the nation, and in the toughest jurisdictions with the most feared and ruthless prosecutors.

A trial does not only establish whether the crime was committed, but it is also used to establish the dollar amount of loss. For example, you may stipulate or admit to committing the crime of embezzlement of $5,000, while your employer maintains that you are responsible for a $30,000 loss. The amount of actual loss may be an issue for trial.

White collar and federal criminal cases are won and lost based on pre-trial preparation. Your team of criminal lawyers must have the expertise and time to conduct its own investigation of your case and thoroughly research your case's paper trail.

Remember it is up to the prosecution to prove the amount of actual loss. Here again a strong aggressive attorney along with his team of forensic accountants and criminal experts can make all the difference in the world, in the results of your case.

Pre-trial preparation is the key to successful defense of white collar charges. Your criminal attorneys and experts need to have the experience and expertise to determine which records are relevant to your case and thoroughly analyze these records.

Papers with Your Life in the Balance

White collar crime can generally be regarded as criminal activity involving money or property. They are commonly referred to as white collar crimes based on the identity of the offender who is someone that occupies a white collar job position, and therefore the offense in turn involves money or property associated with that position. They are also known as paper crimes because the evidence is often based on paper or electronic records.

They are often committed by professionals, business people and public officials where money is at stake. White collar offenses can include bribery, embezzlement, various types of fraud, computer hacking, identify theft and corruption charges.

White Collar Criminal Penalties

The most common penalty associated with most white collar crimes is restitution, the return of the money or property to the damaged parties. In addition to the return of the actual money or property damages, the court can impose interest, fines or penalty assessment fees. This can result in high restitution penalties that can literally create a lifelong financial burden for the defendants in these cases. Even the accusation of a crime, regardless of the evidence, can do substantial harm to your professional reputation and future employment.

An experienced criminal attorney is instrumental in minimizing associated penalties and fines, saving the defendant thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. An experienced attorney can also work out a reasonable payment plan that allows the defendant to pay the damages back over a reasonable time period, while even keeping the defendant out of jail or prison.

Prosecution of White Collar Criminals

Often, white collar criminals are prosecuted at the federal level. Federal Courts are different from State Courts and require a different type of defense and criminal attorneys experienced in federal cases. Federal charges are investigated by large government agencies with virtually unlimited resources and time to build their cases. Federal criminal cases are usually prosecuted aggressively and can carry severe mandatory prison sentences. If you suspect that you may be charged or are under investigation by the federal government, it is critical that you obtain the services of an experienced team of top criminal lawyers.

Get the Best Criminal Lawyers

The best criminal lawyers know how to find holes in prosecutor's cases, no matter what the criminal charge is. The best criminal attorneys also don't cut corners because you didn't pay for the extra hours, extra experts or investigative tactics it might take to win your case. They put up a fierce fight for the defendant with the sole goal of winning the case.

The obvious goal of a criminal defense law firm is to get charges against you dismissed or, barring that, get a not guilty verdict. In the case of white collar crimes, there can be many individual charges, each of which carries its own sentence.

In the event that it is not possible to disprove a specific charge against you, our criminal lawyers fight to reduce the charges and sentencing. The complexity of white collar cases creates many opportunities for plea bargains that LibertyBell Law Group criminal attorneys are very adept at.
