White Collar Crime Lawyers for the LGBT Community
What is a White Collar Crime?
What defines a white collar crime? The Federal Bureau of Investigation has defined white collar crimes as those illegal acts which are characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust and which are not dependent upon the application or threat of physical force or violence. Individuals and organizations commit these acts to obtain money, property, or services; to avoid the payment or loss of money or services; or to secure personal or business advantage. (USDOJ, 1989, p. 3.)
Although these crimes are defined as non-violent, the consequences if convicted can be quite severe. White collar crimes carry serious penalties, including prison time and restitution. Even if the charges are removed, the damage to your reputation can be irreversible. Pride Legal’s network of dedicated lawyers have the experience and knowledge to launch a complete investigation on your behalf. Crimes that are considered white collar crimes which they can represent you for include:
- Accounting fraud charges
- Bribery, extortion
- Computer fraud, cyberspace, and Internet crimes
- Counterfeiting and forgery
- Credit Card Fraud
- Health care and insurance fraud
- Mail fraud
- Medicare fraud
- Money laundering
- Securities and tax fraud
- Tax Evasion
- Wire fraud
There is a wide variety of other white collar crimes, some so complicated that many do not know that they actually exist. White collar crimes certainly do involve many different types of organizations and companies. The complexity of financial institutions today allows many debatable practices to be overlooked. Even worse is the fact that parties involved may unwittingly aid an illegal transaction. For example, during a seemingly legitimate transaction, you may play a role in processing funds without knowing the true source or destination of the money.
