Have You Been Charged With A White Collar Crime?
White collar criminal investigations are extremely thorough, lasting months if not years. If federal in nature, surveillance, monitoring of financial transactions, wiretaps and informants may be used to gather evidence against you.
For these reasons, it’s essential that you work with an attorney who understands how white collar criminal investigations are handled and carried out before indictments are handed down. Be sure that your legal counsel is experienced in federal court, which has a separate set of procedures from state court.
