Queens White Collar Crime Attorney
Powerful Defense in NYC
White collar crimes are in a separate category from violent crimes as the perpetrator depends upon deceit and stealthy methods to part the victim from his money or other property. In many cases a white collar crime such as embezzlement or other theft crime is committed because the opportunity presents itself. In other cases such as Ponzi schemes and other scams, the perpetrator sets out to intentionally swindle or cheat the victim. When one of these schemes violates a U.S. statute the case will be prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney's office in federal court. If you have been approached by a local, state or federal investigator in connection with a white collar crime, you are advised to immediately seek the counsel of a criminal defense attorney.
