White Collar Crimes
White collar crime is a general phrase referring to violations based on deception, fraud or breach of trust instead of threats or violence to achieve an illegal purpose. Embezzlement or bank fraud are examples of white collar property crimes, while offenses such as perjury or election fraud may or may not be committed for purposes of gain.
If you are facing charges of fraud, embezzlement or identity theft, you should consider getting the advice of an attorney whose resourceful approach to the resolution of serious criminal charges can help expand your options while protecting your rights.
