White-Collar Crime Defense Lawyer Serving Los Angeles

Protecting the Legal Rights & Best Interests of the Accused

White-collar crimes are generally nonviolent activities aimed at obtaining financial or personal gain at the expense of others. The label of white-collar crimes covers a wide variety of offenses that may be committed by a single person or a well-organized group. While the schemes behind them may vary widely, all are based on deception using misleading, false, or stolen information. The deception is conducted deliberately.

Felony White-Collar Criminal Charges

In felony cases, a conviction may result in lengthy prison sentences and hefty fines along with restitution to victims. Forfeiture laws may be applied to take away your home and property and a conviction can have a substantially negative effect on obtaining future professional licenses. Furthermore, California has a white-collar enhancement law for repeat offenders that can lead to extra terms of punishment and fines.
