White Collar Criminal Defense
No term in criminal practice gets more volume of coinage and misuse than “white collar crime.” Firms fearing the implicit dirt on their white shoes often take pains to illustrate the difference between crimes against persons (murder, rape and robbery, to name three) and crimes involving property (fraud, theft and corruption, to name three more).
Here’s the hard truth: Crime is crime. The best criminal lawyers understand this, even as they distinguish criminal cases with more sophisticated means and defenses from those grounded in bad blood, bad business or both.
When searching for a law firm to defend you or your company for crimes allegedly committed in the course of business, look first for trial lawyers with the skills to unravel a paper trail, to present information to a jury and to do so while keeping a firm grasp of what is important to the clients who consult them: Avoiding prison, preserving a business and holding down the cost of obtaining both objectives.
