Why you need a seasoned criminal defense lawyer

The term “white collar” implies that the crimes are common among working professionals and business people, but that doesn’t make the offenses less serious. It’s important to understand that if you are accused of a white collar crime in California, you may face the possibility of federal and state prosecution.

If you are under criminal investigation or have been charged with a crime, the stakes are incredibly high. Allegations alone can impact your reputation, business and career prospects. A conviction can lead to costly fines, asset forfeiture, lengthy prison sentences and other consequences that affect your personal life. These types of crimes can also result in civil suits, and the penalties imposed in these cases can be even more harsh.

Because white collar crimes and prosecutions are so complex, you never want to face the criminal justice system on your own. Our seasoned white collar criminal defense lawyer has decades of experience defending the rights and freedom of clients. These types of cases often involve reviewing and analyzing massive amounts of documents and electronic data. We have decades of experience leveling the playing field for clients accused of these serious offenses.
