Crimes that are deemed "white collar" are typically financial crimes that are not violent in nature. They can be very serious felony offenses and have long federal prison sentences in a conviction. Recent years have brought to light several high-profile white collar crimes, such as the infamous Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme.

Have you been charged with a white collar crime?
Facing charges for a financial crime should be of extreme concern and immediate action must be taken. Most of these offenses are charged at a federal level and the penalties are extremely harsh, including years spent in state prison, forfeiture of your assets and property and massive fines. The first step in defending any white collar crime charges is a full analysis of all the evidence that has led to your arrest. If you are being investigated, it is imperative that you have an experienced defense attorney from the firm at your side throughout any questioning. An investigation usually shortly leads to an arrest - yours. Your statements can be used against you and create more problems for the defense of your case.
After a review of the evidence, the best strategy to defend your case can be worked out. If there were any rights violations, such as evidence that was illegally obtained, or failures to follow correct procedures, failures in chain of custody of evidence or any other flaw, you can be reassured that every advantage for you will be aggressively exploited. Even if you are completely innocent it is not necessary true that you will be found not guilty. There are hundreds of innocent individuals serving time because they did not have a proper defense or mistakes were made.
