White Collar Defense

Overview

The federal government has made the prosecution of white-collar offenses a high priority for many years now. Federal sentencing guidelines are such that indictment and conviction for these offenses in nearly all cases means that individuals will be incarcerated and companies will suffer heavy financial and collateral penalties. Any federal criminal investigation is a matter of the utmost gravity because there is so much at stake.
