Experience in defending a variety of fraud crimes

White collar crimes generally involve some form of fraud or deceit used for monetary gain. Fraud crimes are often very serious felonies and may be charged as state or federal crimes.

It is crucial to dispute these charges to avoid the penalties that can be faced if you are sentenced. An experienced criminal defense attorney can provide you the guidance and advice you need when facing allegations of a fraud crime.
