What Is A White Collar Crime?
White collar crimes involve businesses, documents or money as an integral part of their nature. They rarely involve any violence or physical altercations. Some crimes under this category include:
- Embezzlement and fraud, including bank fraud, wire fraud and other issues
- Money laundering and counterfeiting
- Tax fraud, Medicare fraud and other benefits fraud
- Identity theft and cyber crimes
The sheer amount of documentation and evidence can easily overwhelm both the person who is under investigation and also any jury involved. In many ways, the prosecutors hope for a death by a thousand cuts. The right defense can clarify and simplify so that the jury sees the real story.
